Boston College attacker Charlotte North and University of Maryland attackman Jared Bernhardt are the women’s and men’s winners of the 2021 Tewaaraton Award, given annually to the top female and top male college lacrosse players in the United States.
Senior Charlotte North set the NCAA’s single-season record for goals this year with 102, including six in the NCAA Championship Game. She finished as the NCAA Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player and also ranked third nationally in goals per game (4.86) and eighth nationally in both draw controls per game and shooting percentage (.630), helping to lead the Eagles to their first NCAA championship in women’s lacrosse. The Dallas, Tex. native (Episcopal School) set the ACC record for goals in a game this year with 10 and Boston College’s record for goals in an NCAA Tournament game with eight. She was first-team All-ACC, first-team IWLCA All-Northeast Region, and a first-team All-American by both Inside Lacrosse and USA Lacrosse this season.
Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year Jared Bernhardt finished No. 1 in the country in both points per game (6.19) and goals per game (4.44) for the NCAA Finalist Terrapins. His record-setting season ranks No. 1 at Maryland in both points (99) and goals (71), and his 33 career goals in the NCAA Tournament broke Frank Urso’s UM record that had stood since 1976. The Longwood, Fla. native (Lake Brantley) now owns Maryland’s career records for goals (202) and points (290). With nine games of five or more goals this year, Bernhardt was named a first-team All-American by Inside Lacrosse and USA Lacrosse and won the USILA’s Lt. Raymond Enners Memorial Nation’s Most Outstanding Player Award.
