Stony Brook Sends Two to Manchester
from press release
STONY BROOK, N.Y. – Junior Kevin Crowley (New Westminster, British Columbia) recently was added to Team Canada's 24-man roster for the 2010 World Championships in Manchester, England in 10 days. Sophomore Greg Miceli (King City, Ontario) also will participate at the World Championships, as he'll suit up for Team Italy.
Former Stony Brook standout Rhys Duch '08 also will play for Team Canada and Seawolves head coach Rick Sowell is an assistant coach for Team USA.
Crowley, who was the 2010 recipient for the Enners Award, given to the USILA's most outstanding Division I player, had one of the best seasons ever by a Stony Brook men's lacrosse player, posting 51 goals and 26 assists in 17 games. His 51 goals are a single-season program record and he's the only player in school history in the top five in goals (101) and assists (75). Crowley is just 26 points shy of the all-time record of 201.
The 2010 unanimous America East Player of the Year and a Tewaaraton Award finalist, Crowley joins Corey Small as late additions. "Being recognized as one of five finalists for the Tewaaraton Trophy in his junior year says a lot about Kevin,'' Canada's national team executive director Dean French said in a release. "He's a welcome addition to Team Canada.''
Miceli played in 11 games this season before missing time with an injury. He collected a career-best five ground balls at Binghamton on April 17 and will play an important part in Stony Brook's 2011 season.
Sowell and Team USA will take on the Major League Lacrosse All-Stars on Thursday, July 8 at 7 pm on ESPN2 before flying to England on Monday.
