LaValle Stadium has been the home of the Seawolves since it opened in 2002. The Stadium has been the site of a victorious Homecoming Football game the past six years, in front of supportive crowds that cheered on Seawolves athletics. The most electric atmosphere to this point was when Stony Brook beat Albany in the first round of the FCS Playoffs last year. Something was different about this year.
The streak is still alive, with Stony Brook now winning seven Homecoming games in a row. Wolfstock saw a record-breaking week, with jaw dropping attendance at every event. Wednesday was packed out with Seawolves for the Homecoming Kickoff Carnival. Thursday saw a full house of over 600 students, faculty and staff at the King & Queen Creative explosion. The Staller Steps were stuffed with hundreds of students like never before for the Seawolves Showcase. Saturday was the highlight – LaValle Stadium was bursting at the seams with a record shattering 10,278 fans in attendance, decked out in red, covered in paint and screaming their heads off. Fans rushed the field after a dramatic conclusion and they all looked up to watch as fireworks lit up the night sky.
As Stony Brook continues to make tremendous strides, momentum is on our side.
