Our student-athletes in RED enjoyed another strong weekend as the football team dominated Colgate on the road, the volleyball team split a pair of matches in upstate New York, and the women's soccer team rolled over rival Albany.
This week is a bye week for the football team, but there's plenty of #Seawolves action at home this week as men's soccer, women's soccer and volleyball will all host matches. Check the GoSeawolves.org calendar for more information. And don't forget to get your tickets for next Saturday's football bout with New Hampshire at 4 p.m.
D-FENCE rules in win at Colgate
The #Seawolves left no doubt in their game at Colgate this past Saturday, scoring on the opening drive of the game and then taking it to the Raiders with punishing defense in a 27-3 victory. The defense racked up three sacks, a fumble force and fumble recovery and a 52-yard interception return for a touchdown by Naim Cheeseboro.

Bringing good luck to the football team
One of the stories circulating around this season has been the one of Joey Feminella, a 14-year-old resident of West Islip, who has been honorary captain of the #Seawolves football team for five years after recovering from battling brain cancer. News 12 featured Joey and the team last week.
Women's soccer remains perfect at home
Seven up, seven down for the #Seawolves at LaValle Stadium after they took down SUNY rival Albany, 4-0, on Sunday.

Volleyball splits upstate
The #Seawolves extended their winning streak to four matches Friday night with a five-set come-from-behind win at Binghamton.
