COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State women’s lacrosse team lost their first road game of the season to No. 12 Stony Brook. The Seawolves topped the Buckeyes 20-7.


“It was an awesome opportunity to get out and play a top team and we saw some bright moments,” said head coach Amy Bokker. “Freshman Caly O’Brien played really well and so did Chloe Johnson, she was going hard to the net for us. Riley Ewing also gave us a chance on every draw.”

Jill Rizzo made four saves in goal and Kimberly Apuzzo lead the team in ground balls (8).
