Stony Brook WLAX recorded a record-breaking season.

With the loss, the Seawolves fall to 20-1 (7-0 AE) to finish the year.

“I’m proud of our kids,” said head coach Joe Spallina. “I’d go to battle with that group any day of the week, I love each one of them. It stings, it definitely hurts.”

“That said, you can’t ask for more, Spallina added. “Our defense responded well after a tough start, and I thought we were the better team after the first 10 minutes. I give a lot of credit to Boston College, they’re a great team. I love my kids, we just didn’t make enough plays today.”

Kylie Ohlmiller recorded five points (two goals, three assists) in her final game with the Seawolves program. Ohlmiller, a 2018 Tewaaraton Award Finalist, finishes her collegiate career with 498 points and 246 assists – both are new NCAA Division I records.

Stony Brook tied a program record with 20 victories in 2018, the second-straight year accomplishing the feat.

The Seawolves finish the year leading the nation in six major Division I categories: points per game (29.28), scoring margin (+10.80), assists per game (11.23), shot percentage (.547), turnovers per game (12.00), and team defense (7.09 goals-allowed per contest).
