Stony Brook, N.Y. - Senior goalie Frankie Caridi of the No. 20/18 Stony Brook women's lacrosse team has been selected to the All-ILWomen Team, and freshmen Dorrien Van Dyke and Courtney Murphy have been named All-Rookie, the website announced Thursday. The trio helped lead the #Seawolves to their second consecutive school-record 17-win season, America East championship and NCAA Tournament win.

The two teams are each comrpised of five attackers, five midfielders, five defenders and one goalie.  

The only netminder in the land to be named a Tewaaraton Award semifinalist and an IWLCA All-American, Caridi led the country with a goals-against average (GAA) of 5.17, the fifth-lowest GAA in NCAA single-season history. She also posted a nation leading save percentage of .542, marking the second season in a row she has paced the country in both categories. With the East Northport, N.Y., product in the cage, Stony Brook topped its own national record for scoring defense at a staggering 5.31 goals allowed per game and was the only program in Division I to surrender fewer than six goals per game.

Caridi anchored a defensive unit that kept teams to single-digit goal scoring in 19 of 21 contests, to five goals or fewer 13 times, to three goals or fewer six times and to one goal or fewer four times. She was in net for the first shutout in program history, a 13-0 win over Monmouth Feb. 19. The America East Defensive Player of the Year posted a conference tournament-record GAA of 3.00 and helped SBU break its own championship marks for fewest total (6) and single-game (1 vs. Albany, 5/4) goals allowed. She was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.


 

 

Van Dyke and Murphy were two of the Seawolves' league-high four All-Rookie picks, and Van Dyke was America East Rookie of the Year. The only freshman selected first-team all-conference, Van Dyke led Stony Brook and freshmen nationally with a school freshman record of 68 points. She was second on the squad and among Division I freshmen with 52 goals, the fourth-most by a Seawolf in one season.

Murphy has been stealing headlines since breaking school records for most points (8) and goals (7) by a Stony Brook freshman in her debut vs. Bucknell Feb. 15. She finished the year with a team high, school freshman mark of 61 goals, which ranked 10th overall and first among freshmen in the country and third in single-season school history. The Shirley, N.Y., native was second among freshmen nationally in goals per game (2.90). Murphy joined classmate Kristin Yevoli as the only rookies on the all-conference second team.
