Stony Brook, N.Y. - The Stony Brook women's soccer team wrapped up a successful spring season with several positive results, including a win over Columbia and strong efforts against BIG EAST foes Seton Hall and St. John's.

"We were very happy for the progress we made as a team this spring," said head coach Sue Ryan. "The spring is an important time for us as we are able to see who has made strides individually and also as a unit."

The Seawolves played to a pair of 1-1 draws against Seton Hall and St. John's, and also battled hard in a loss to Princeton, a team that advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament last year.

"We played several good teams and we saw some positive attributes come out in our play that we had been working on all spring," Ryan added. "I think we created a good platform for us to move forward for this upcoming season."

The 2012 America East champions, Stony Brook became the first team in conference history to win the America East Tournament as a No. 6 seed. The Seawolves knocked off the top three teams in the conference on the road to win the title and faced No. 9 Maryland in the program's first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance.
