Since her rookie season with the Pride in 2007, senior women’s lacrosse player Corrine Gandolfi has had talent written all over her. Her natural ability has already put dents in Hofstra’s record book.
After its win against no. 19 Brown, the Pride men’s lacrosse team is flying high into their next match against no. 7 Johns Hopkins University.
The women’s lacrosse team rebounded on Monday, from their loss to Notre Dame, when they defeated Albany in come-from-behind fashion. The team’s second half offensive display helped achieve a 17-14 victory, improving its record to 2-1.
Men’s lacrosse head coach Seth Tierney looked down the sideline during Saturday’s game against Princeton and for the first time in his tenure at Hofstra, he was not looking at his uncle, Bill Tierney.
LAST SEASON : 11-4 overall, 6-0 in CAA play
Lost in first round of CAA tournament to Villanova 7-9
Lost in first round of NCAA tournament to Cornell 8-11
With a unique mix of veteran scorers and powerful freshmen, the women’s lacrosse squad appears to have a dynamic offense ready to seriously compete in the CAA.
For the third year in a row, the women’s lacrosse team fell to Notre Dame in a battle that was back and forth the entire game. The Pride suffered its first blow of the season in the 12-13 defeat.
When the Headstrong Foundation and Hofstra came together and decided to hold the first Nick Collelouri Women’s Lacrosse Classic at James M. Shuart Stadium, the field where the Collelouri brothers played, their goal was to gain awareness for the foundation and funds for blood cancer research.
Not only was the tournament a success, but despite the free admission the foundation was able to raise $32,000 for research. Hofstra senior Courtney O’Connor was very happy with how the tournament turned out and what the 12 teams participating were able to experience. “The tournament was definitely a complete success,” said O’Connor, “I am glad that the other teams and fans were able to hear Mrs. Colleluori’s speech about Nick and the cause because it touched everyone’s hearts.”
