Notes: The Fighting Knights enter ths fifth season in the program's history, adjusting to the departures of the final five remaining players from the inaugural 2014 squad. Last season, Lynn started off the year hot with three straight wins, including the program's first-ever win over a top-10 opponent with a 9-7 home triumph over No. 8 Adelphi. The Blue and White hit a skid in the middle part of the season, before turning it back on once the conference slate began. The Fighting Knights ended up in a three-way tie for the final two spots in the SSC Tournament, ulitmately coming out of the coin flip as the No. 3 seed. The team wasn't able to reach their first SSC Championship with a loss to Florida Tech in the semfinals. Dryden Brous and Mikey Urso are the most decorated returners as they were both First Team All-SSC selections last year, with Brous bringing home the progam's first ever SSC Freshman of the Year award. Brous closed out the regular season with three consecutive SSC Specialist of the Week selections and totaled a program-record four on the season. He also secured the second National Player of the Week award in program history following a stellar performance in the team's win over Saint Leo. Seniors Mark Pryor and Stephen Polsinelli return for their final campaign as the team captains. Coach Kingsbury brought in another large recruiting class, heavy on freshmen with just one graduate-school transfer. The Fighting Knights open up the season on Feb. 17 with a neutral-site matchup against Mars Hill.
