Tewaaraton finalists announced for NCAA DI women's lacrosse

The 2019 women's Tewaaraton Award finalists are revealed

The Tewaaraton Foundation has released the list of five finalists for the 2019 DI women's lacrosse Tewaaraton Award, given to the best player in the country.

Maryland and Boston College are each represented with two nominees apiece, while Northwestern's Selena Lasota grabbed the remaining spot. BC's Sam Apuzzo won the award last year and is nominated again in 2019.

WHY IS IS CALLED THE TEWAARATON? That, plus other things to know about the award

Players from seven different schools have won the award since its inception in 2001, and all three of the schools represented in this year's group of finalists have had players win the award before. Apuzzo's win for Boston College in 2018 was the school's first, but Maryland has had eight Tewaaraton winners in its history, and Northwestern has five.
