Stony Brook Names Lacrosse Captains for 2011

Stony Brook, N.Y. Stony Brook head coach Rick Sowell has named seniors Kevin Crowley (New Westminster, British Columbia), Jordan McBride (New Westminster, British Columbia), and Tom Compitello (Hauppauge, N.Y.) as the team's 2011 captains. The trio combined to score 136 goals last season, earned All-America honors, and are part of one of the nation's premier offenses.

Crowley, who was the 2010 recipient of the Enners Award given to the USILA's most outstanding Division I player, had one of the best seasons ever by a Stony Brook men's lacrosse player, posting 51 goals and 26 assists in 17 games. His 51 goals are a single-season program record and he's the only player in school history in the top five in goals (101) and assists (75). Crowley is just 26 points shy of the all-time school record of 201. The 2010 unanimous America East Player of the Year and a Tewaaraton Award finalist, Crowley played for Team Canada at the 2010 World Championship Games in Manchester, England this past summer.

McBride, an honorable mention All-America after his freshman and sophomore seasons, had 48 goals as a junior, a career best. He became the Seawolves' all-time leading goal scorer after scoring a pair against Albany in the America East Championship game. A three time first-team All-America East selection, McBride is the first player in school history to score at least 40 goals in three straight seasons.

After recording 39 points in 21 games going into the 2010 season, Compitello exploded for 72 points (37g, 35a) en route to third-team All-America honors. Compitello tallied at least one point in every game this season, including a career-best eight against Hartford (6g, 2a). He also earned America East first-team honors.
