Alumni News

  • On Thursday, Don Liotine ’13 became the first Stony Brook alum to play in a Division I football game since Matt Mattimore ’95 played at Georgetown from 1995-1998. Liotine is currently the #2 running back on Stony Brook University’s depth chart.

  • Rod Odom ’09 scored 16 points to lead Virtus Bologna to the Rimini Tournament title on Sunday.
  • We received word that Wes Woodley ’11, starting goalkeeper for the North Park University men’s soccer team, tore his ACL in August. Though he will miss the entire season, he has been granted another year of eligibility and will play his final season for the Vikings next year.
  • Jake Singer ’14 started the season opener at midfield for the Trevecca Nazarene University men’s soccer team.
  • Stony Brook alums went 6-3 on the week.

Roar of the Week

Where we give the animal kingdom equivalent of a shout out.

Sadhana Sridhar’s comeback victory in her first singles match on Wednesday was not only an impressive show of skill, but of fortitude. The 8th-grader dropped the first set, took the second set 6-3, built a strong lead in the third set, and withstood a comeback bid from her Ward Melville opponent before earning the victory.
