Alioth vs. Pierson in 1987

Doug Alioth ’88 was one of the greatest all-around athletes in Stony Brook history, twice earning the Swanson All-Around trophy. A standout on the soccer, basketball, and baseball teams, it was as much his character as his skill that endeared him to teammates and coaches.

He was a four-time winner of the soccer award, three times for performance and once for contribution, as well as an All-County selection in 1987. He twice won the basketball performance award and earned a coveted spot on the All-County team.

On the diamond he helped the baseball team to the 1985 and 1987 League Championships, the first titles for the program since 1967. After helping earn the program’s first County title in 1987, he singled in the game-winning run in the Class C/D Championship over Eastport. He twice earned baseball’s contribution award and twice received All-County recognition, making him part of a select group of Stony Brook athletes who have attained All-County status in three sports. Additionally, he still owns school records for hits in a season (39), doubles in a season (7), and longest hitting streak (15 games).

After graduating from the Brook, he went to Messiah College where he was a leader in the Falcons’ outstanding soccer program. He was selected to the All-Region team twice (1989 & 1990), the All-Conference 2nd Team in 1989, and the 1st Team in 1990 and 1991. After a stellar 1991 season he was named the Middle Atlantic Conference Player of the Year, the first of twenty-one times that honor would be given to a Falcon. He remains 5th in Messiah’s record book for assists in a season with the 13 he tallied in 1991.

Alioth was also a member of the Falcons’ basketball and baseball teams.
