College Lacrosse | Top Five Plays

WASHINGTON – The Tewaaraton Foundation has announced the first round of additions to the 2018 Tewaaraton Award Men’s and Women’s Watch Lists. The lists include the top players across all three divisions of NCAA lacrosse and highlight the early contenders for this year’s Tewaaraton Award.

“These players have proved in the early part of this season that they deserved to be in the conversation for lacrosse’s top award,” said Jeffrey Harvey, Chairman of The Tewaaraton Foundation. “We congratulate this talented group for their outstanding performances and wish them the very best the remainder of the season."

The Tewaaraton Award annually honors the top male and female college lacrosse player in the United States. The selection committees are comprised of premier college coaches and are appointed annually by the Tewaaraton Foundation.
