Stony Brook Names Junior, Soph. as 2014 Lacrosse Captains

STONY BROOK, N.Y - Stony Brook head head lacrosse coach Jim Nagle announced that junior Mike Andreassi (Holbrook, N.Y.) and sophomore Lucas Rock (Bay Shore, N.Y.) will serve as the Seawolves' 2014 co-captains.

Andreassi has played in 30 games over the past two seasons, tallying 18 goals and 10 assists from the midfield. He scored a season-best 14 goals, including two goals against Maryland and Virginia, as a sophomore. Andreassi has nine multi-point games.

"More than anything, Mike and Lucas embody our three C's of leadership - competence, compassion and courage," Nagle said. "As for Mike, he's always been a team-first guy. He's a quality kid who balances academics and athletics the right way."

Rock emerged as one of the Seawolves' most reliable short-stick defensive midfielders, playing in all 16 games as a true freshman. He tallied 20 ground balls and seven caused turnovers and added a goal at Vermont.

"Lucas has been dialed in since the day he arrived on campus," Nagle said. "He's earned the respect from his teammates as a role model, and accomplishes all things that don't show up in the box score."

The 2014 season gets underway on Friday, February 14 against Marist at 6:00 p.m.
