New Paltz Baseball
SUNY New Paltz student Michael Lisojo of Dix Hills is a member of the SUNY New Paltz men’s baseball team for the 2022 fall season.
The Hawks secured a 9-6 victory over SUNY Plattsburgh’s Cardinals in April, and are coming into fall 2022 determined to keep up the fight.
“We’re at the point of our season where every game matters,” said SUNY New Paltz coach Thomas Seay at the time. “We kept fighting, so we knew if we could keep it tight and close, I felt like offensively we would be able to push across enough runs. We’re just hoping we could collect enough outs along the way.”
SUNY New Paltz student Joseph Bradbury of Huntington Station, NY is a member of the Men’s Lacrosse team for the fall 2022 season.
Playing in their first full season since its inaugural season in 2020, the Hawks Men’s Lacrosse team made history with their first ever SUNYAC win in program history. Fittingly, it came against Catskill Cup rival SUNY Oneonta in a regular season matchup on South Turf Field.
