Five Seawolves are USA Lacrosse All-Americans.
Ellie Masera’s standout sophomore campaign earned her First Team honors, while Clare Levy was selected to the Second Team, Rayna Sabella was tabbed to the Third Team and Haley Dillon and Kailyn Hart earned Honorable Mention honors.
Masera was one of the best midfielders in the sport during the 2022 campaign, leading the No. 4 Seawolves to a 14-2 record and a 12-game winning streak to end the year. The America East Midfielder of the Year, Masera finished 17th in the country in goals per game (3.62) and was inside the Top 30 nationally in four statistical categories.
Levy was a lockdown defender for the Seawolves’ No. 1-ranked scoring defense, holding opponents to 6.69 goals per game. Over their last 12 games, Stony Brook opposition was held to single digits in 11 of those outings and to five or fewer goals in seven of those games. She was selected to First Team All-Conference honors as well.
The Preseason America East Defender of the Year and Second Team All-Conference Selection, Sabella transitioned back into her midfield role and was a jack-of-all trades for Stony Brook, finishing with 32 points, 20 ground balls and 15 caused turnovers, providing a veteran presence in the Stony Brook midfield.
Dillon finished the regular season fourth in the country in caused turnovers, creating 2.62 per game. The America East Defender of the Year, she was a critical part of the Stony Brook defense that caused 10.81 turnovers per game, good for ninth in the country.
Hart caught fire towards the end of the year, recording nine consecutive hat tricks to end the campaign and 20 goals over her final four contests. This included a six-spot at No. 24 Yale en route to a 57-goal campaign. That streak helped her earn America East Attacker of the Year honors and placed her 19th in the country in goals per game, at 3.56 per day.
