Boys’ soccer has a long history at the Brook. The first team was fielded in 1936 and continued for four more years, but did not exist in a formal iteration for 32 years between 1940 and 1972. The team experienced very little success in the first 18 years of its reestablishment in 1972, but the tide began to change once Curt Masters took the helm. He guided the team to its first winning season in 1990, laying the groundwork for much of the program’s future success. Masters would coach just one more season before handing the program off to David Church. What followed was the most successful era in Stony Brook Soccer history.

Church led the program for 14 years, during which the team registered 106 wins and three League Championships. Church’s career wins total places him 76 wins ahead of any other coach in program history. Church brought passion, discipline, and success to Stony Brook Soccer, and for that reason his time with the blue and white will always be remembered.

Beyond great teams, Stony Brook has produced a number of outstanding individual players, 24 of whom went on to play at the collegiate level. While the team has not claimed a Championship in the last ten years, an infusion of youth in the program has built some excitement for what lies ahead.
