There’s the attackman who tore her ACL as a senior in high school. There’s the girl from Rocky Point who had never played lacrosse. There’s the goalkeeper who got peppered with goals in high school, losing nearly every game.
The bios of the women who make up the St. Joseph’s College lacrosse team read unlike most championship-caliber squads. They are not the high school All-Americans, the women whose pictures constantly appeared in newspapers, the prolific goal scorers.
They are the diamonds in the rough. (more…)

ROBERT O’ROURK PHOTO | The Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team and assistant coach Caitlin Defliese will travel to Riverhead June 7 for the 28th annual Say No to Drugs March.
The nationally ranked Stony Brook University women’s lacrosse team will be the keynote speakers at next month’s annual anti-drugs march in Riverhead.
The 28th annual Say No to Drugs March, sponsored by the Riverhead Community Awareness Program June 7, will begin at Pulaski Street School before looping back around through Roanoke, Griffing and Hallett Avenues. The team will speak to students and residents on the steps of Pulaski Street School after the march.
The Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team put together a historic season this year, winning a program-best 17 games and going undefeated in conference play. The team went on to win its first-ever America East title. The team won 10 awards, including Demmianne Cook winning Player of the Year.
“We are honored and humbled to have been asked to be a part of Riverhead CAP’s Say NO to Drugs March,” said women’s lacrosse head coach Joe Spallina, who was named Synapse Division I National Coach of the Year last week. “The student-athletes on the Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team understand the importance of taking care of their bodies, which includes saying no to substance abuse. We look forward to showing members of the community how living a healthy, drug-free lifestyle can help them achieve their goals.”
CAP’s executive director Felicia Scocozza said she was “thrilled” to have the team share their experience with Riverhead students and the community.
“We hope that members of the community will once again come out and support the students and their efforts to remain drug-free,” said Ms. Scocozza, a Stony Brook alumna.
