Demmianne Cook renews contract with Team STX for 2014 season
March 19, 2014
Baltimore Md. –The most prolific scorer in Stony Brook women’s lacrosse history and a current volunteer assistant coach, Demmianne Cook has renewed her contract with Team STX for the 2014 season. She is one of 15 players from the inaugural squad, which was the first-ever elite post-collegiate women’s lacrosse team, to return for a second year.
As part of her renewed contract, Cook will continue to play for Team STX, expand youth skills clinics and promote women’s lacrosse products for the growing brand. Team STX will compete at the Lake Placid Classic and look to defend its title at the Vail Lacrosse Shootout. In 2013, the team also won gold in the Ocean City Lacrosse Classic during the Women’s Elite Final.
Cook and other team members took part in marketing STX products, including a 4SightForm video.
Cook scored a program-record 158 goals during her two-year career at Stony Brook. She found the back of the cage an astounding 90 times in 2013, the sixth-most in NCAA Division I history and a school mark, on her way to becoming the Seawolves’ first Tewaaraton nominee and second IWLCA All-American. The Nesconset, N.Y., native led the team to two America East title game appearances, its first conference championship and a berth in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
She now serves as a volunteer assistant coach and has helped a young Stony Brook squad attain a No. 17 national ranking in both major polls.
