Stony Brook, N.Y. - Stony Brook women's lacrosse, in conjunction with ILWomen.com editor Danielle Bernstein and America East, will host a Google+ hangout with senior standouts Demmianne Cook, Janine Hillier and Claire Petersen Wednesday, May 8 at 3:15 p.m. People can submit questions on Twitter by using #SeawolvesLax.
Cook, Stony Brook's first Tewaaraton nominee, leads the nation in goals and goals per game. She netted a conference tournament-record seven against Vermont in the semifinals on Friday. Despite only playing two seasons at Stony Brook, she is the school's all-time leading goal scorer with 154 career scores. The Nesconset, N.Y., native has already started to rack up postseason accolades, nabbing IWLCA First-Team All-Region, America East Player of the Year, First-Team All-America East and All-Championship Team honors over the past week.
Hillier is a two-time first-team all-conference selection and was named Most Outstanding Player after totaling 11 points, two more than the Seawolves surrendered all tournament. She is second on the team in goals with 47 and points with 72.
An ILWomen.com Preseason All-American, Petersen made a splash in her return to the field Friday against Vermont. She tallied four points on one goal and three assists, one of which was on Cook's record-breaking 151st career tally, to become just the second Seawolf to reach the 100-helper plateau. In the title game, she netted one goal and one assist to bring her team-leading assist-total to 42, the 10th highest in the nation.
The senior trio has helped the Seawolves go from a four-win team to a top-10, nationally ranked squad in just two seasons. They will look to help SBU earn a win in its first-ever NCAA game Friday, May 10 against Towson in College Park, Md.
