NEW YORK — The Tewaaraton Foundation has announced the 2014 Tewaaraton Award men’s and women’s watch lists, presented by Panama Jack. The lists include the top players across all three divisions of NCAA lacrosse and highlight the early contenders for the 2014 Tewaaraton Award.
Among 2014 watch list returnees are three former finalists. On the men’s side, 2013 finalists Tom Schreiber (Princeton) and Lyle Thompson (Albany) return to the watch list this year. Senior Alyssa Murray (Syracuse) returns on the women’s side.
“This is meaningful acknowledgement by the coaches of the top 100 players in the college game today. As the season unfolds, we are excited to track the progress of this group and those players who inevitably emerge and are added to this list,” said Jeff Harvey, chairman of the Tewaaraton Foundation. “We look forward to the season ahead and in greeting the 10 players who ultimately emerge as Tewaaraton Award finalists.”
The Tewaaraton Award annually honors the top male and top female college lacrosse player in the United States. The selection committees are made up of top collegiate coaches and are appointed annually by the Tewaaraton Foundation.
Players not named to the initial list have several opportunities to play their way into a spot as the season progresses. Additions will be announced on March 20 and April 10. On April 24, the field will be narrowed to 25 men’s and 25 women’s nominees. Nominees can be players on the watch lists or players not on the watch lists, effectively allowing for a third round of additions for players who earn a spot. Five men’s and five women’s finalists will be announced on May 8 and will be invited to the May 29 ceremony in Washington.

First presented in 2001, the Tewaaraton Award is recognized as the preeminent lacrosse award, annually honoring the top male and female college lacrosse player in the United States. Endorsed by the Mohawk Nation Council of Elders and US Lacrosse, the Tewaaraton Award symbolizes lacrosse’s centuries-old roots in Native American heritage. The Tewaaraton Foundation ensures the integrity and advances the mission of this award. Each year, the Tewaaraton Award celebrates one of the six tribal nations of the Iroquois Confederacy – the Mohawk, Cayuga, Oneida, Onondaga, Seneca and Tuscarora – and presents two scholarships to students of Native American descent.
