Cook tabbed IWLCA All-American
May 15, 2013
Stony Brook, N.Y. – Senior Demmianne Cook of the No. 10/9 Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team has been named a third-team All-American; the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) announced this morning. This marks the second straight season SBU has nabbed an All-America honor, as Claire Petersen was a third-team selection in 2012.
Cook currently leads the nation in goals with 90 after breaking the school’s single-season goal record for the second consecutive year. The Nesconset, N.Y., native also sits atop the national rankings in goals per game (4.5) and is ninth in points per game (4.8) and 12th in draw controls per game (4.8). Cook holds the all-time program mark for career goals with 158 despite only playing two seasons at SBU.
A two-way player, Cook also set a program record for draw controls in a single-season with 96, helping SBU control the tempo of games en route to its winningest campaign in program history. She played a pivotal role on Stony Brook’s top-ranked defense by causing a team-best 28 turnovers.
Cook tallied 14 points during the Seawolves’ four-game postseason run, which resulted in their first-ever America East crown and NCAA Tournament game win. She was the only America East student-athlete to post at least five points in every regular-season league contest and poured in a tournament-record seven goals in a dominant 18-4 win against Vermont in the conference semifinals.
This is the latest in a slew of postseason honors for the captain, who became the first Tewaaraton nominee in program history last month. Additionally, she was named first team All-Mid-Atlantic Region by the IWLCA, third team All-American by Synapse, first team all-conference and America East Player of the Year.
Cook will be honored for her standout senior season at the IWLCA All-American banquet on May 25, 2013 at the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge in King Prussia, Pa.
