Athlete of the Week: Sean St. Lucia

Captain of the men’s basketball team, third-year guard Sean St. Lucia has started all 26 games and has helped lead the team to numerous victories. The mechanical engineering major is a triplet and both of his siblings are involved with sports teams of their own; his sister also attends New Paltz. After graduating from Niskayuna High School in 2020 as a Scholar-Athlete, St. Lucia decided to continue his athletic career at SUNY New Paltz. Not soon after, he received the responsibility of becoming team captain.

Raised by two former athletes, St. Lucia was destined to become one himself. Averaging 9.5 points per game, St. Lucia worked hard to help secure the win. He scored career high points against Plattsburgh on Feb. 18, scoring 21 points. Additionally, he earned a spot on the Hawks Academic Honor Roll for the fall 2021 semester.
St. Lucia played all 40 minutes in the game against Cortland on Feb. 22 and pulled down career-high 11 rebounds against Plattsburgh on Feb. 18. He continues to carry the team and show his leadership skills on the court.
