Marathon In Buffalo
Sixty minutes was not enough to decide a winner between Stony Brook and Buffalo on the gridiron. Bidding for the upset, the #Seawolves tied the game, 10-10, late on Lyle Negron's touchdown pass to Malcolm Eugene with 29 seconds to play. The game became wild from there as the two teams engaged in five overtimes before the Bulls won it on Anthone Smith's six-yard touchdown run to secure a 26-23 victory. Here's some of the stories you should read on the game:
Hitting a Home Run at Joe Nathan Field
This past Saturday, Stony Brook Athletics and The Miracle League of Long Island partnered to put on a special doubleheader at Joe Nathan Field. The Miracle League invites children with special needs to come out and play baseball with "buddies," volunteers who help the players bat, run and play the field. Over 150 Stony Brook students and student-athletes volunteered as "buddies." Take a look at some of the awesome images and video:
A new smile for a #Seawolves honorary captain
Ten-year-old Kevin Rosero has been in the United States since January receiving treatment on a venous malformation on his lower lip. After enduring 10 surgeries at Stony Brook Hospital, Kevin is ready to go home, and the #Seawolves men's soccer team sent him home in style. They surprised him at a news conference last Friday, greeting him with a signed soccer ball, a t-shirt and an invitation to sit on the bench at the game later in the evening vs. Rhode Island. Kevin came decked out in his soccer cleats and served as honorary captain, sitting on the bench with the team during the game. The #Seawolves, behind Will Casey's first-half goal, defeated URI, 1-0. Take a look at the coverage of Kevin's incredible story:
Volleyball hangs tough at Kennesaw Tournament
The #Seawolves lost all five of their contests last week, but they had some outstanding individual performances over the weekend at the Kennesaw State Owl Classic. Take a look at the match recaps:
Lightning strikes twice in women's soccer's second half
Literally, lightning struck more than than twice last Thursday night at LaValle Stadium. With Wagner leading 1-0 in the first half, lightning began to strike in the area, forcing a prolonged weather delay that lasted two hours and 40 minutes. But once action picked back up, the #Seawolves answered the call with a pair of second-half goals to beat the Seahawks 2-1. Read the recap here.
Running on Campus
The men's & women's cross country teams hosted the Wolfie Invitational on Saturday against some stiff competition. Read the recap here.

Koehler loves New York
Former #Seawolves star and current Miami Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler '08 is a native of New York, and he's become a thorn in his hometown team's side, the New York Mets. The 27-year-old pitched eight shutout innings at Citi Field on Sunday, allowing just three hits while striking out five. This season against the Mets, Koehler is 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA and 17 strikeouts in 36 innings. Read about Koehler's performance here.
