With a late-season win over No. 11 Amherst, the Cardinals earned a spot in the NESCAC Tournament.
Before Wesleyan, Stueck worked a year as an assistant coach at Yale University and a year as a men's and women's assistant at Illinois College.
Originally from Connecticut, Stueck played collegiately at Northeastern University and then at Providence College. He graduated from Providence. As a high school player, he lead Brookfield High School to a pair of State Championships and scored 91 career goals. He also played on US Youth National Teams.
At Wesleyan he built a reputation as an excellent evaluator of talent and as a recruiter.
