Alma Mater & Fight Song

Stony Brook University Cheerleading

One of Stony Brook's most spirited groups is its cheerleading squad. Under the current direction of Lenee Passiglia and Adam Mahoney, the squad performs year-round during all home football games and men's and women's home basketball games. The squad also accompanies the teams to any off-campus tournaments such as the America East Basketball tournament held every March. In addition to cheering on the Seawolves, the squad also performs on a competitive level at competitions all over the Northeast.

The current squad, led by captains Kaitlyn Gallagher and Stephanie Wolfe, is a co-ed squad consisting of hard-working, dedicated young men and women. The purpose of the SBU Cheer squad is to support the athletic teams at the University by generating crowd enthusiasm and to participate in various community service events. The University of Stony Brook Cheerleaders are representatives of the University and should display a positive and courteous manner at all times. The Cheer Program is under and governed by the Undergraduate Student Government.

Coaching Staff: The Stony Brook Cheerleading team is coached by Adam Mahoney and Lenee Passiglia. Adam cheered at the University of Memphis before transferring to Hofstra University, where he won his first UCA National Championship in 2011. He is also an 8-year UCA Staff Member. Lenee Passiglia graduated from Hofstra University where she won four UCA National championships. Both coaches are a great addition to the SBU Cheerleading family and are instrumental in bringing the squad to a National level.
