From Press Release
Stony Brook head men’s lacrosse coach Jim Nagle announced that junior Mike Andreassi (Holbrook, N.Y./Sachem North) and sophomore Lucas Rock (Bay Shore, N.Y./Bay Shore) 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 p.m.
