St. James, NY - May 7, 2018 - On May 2, several members of the Stony Brook University Men’s varsity basketball team, accompanied by Head Coach Jeff Boals and Assistant Coach Bryan Weber, visited St. James independent school Harbor Country Day
During the visit, Coach Boals delivered an inspiring message about teamwork and commitment to the school’s Upper School students, followed by a rousing game of “knock-out” and a mini-scrimmage between Harbor Country Day’s undefeated girls’ team and the Seawolves players.  
“We had a great time spending the afternoon at Harbor Country Day,” said Coach Boals. “We are so appreciative of the community support for our program throughout the year, and it's always a welcomed opportunity when we have a chance to spend time and return that support.”
Harbor Country Day Head of School John Cissel added, “It was such an honor to welcome Coach Boals and the Seawolves to Harbor, as the basketball program at Stony Brook has become a real source of pride throughout our local community. At Harbor, we strive to instill in our students the importance of strong character, integrity, and hard work, and the Stony Brook players and coaches are a perfect representation of those qualities. So not only was it a great experience for our girls’ team to play against the Seawolves, but it also was a wonderful opportunity to reinforce the important life lessons we try to teach every day.”
