WASHINGTON – The Tewaaraton Foundation has announced the first round of additions to the 2017 Tewaaraton Award Men’s and Women’s Watch Lists, presented by Under Armour. 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 proved in the early part of this season that they deserve to be in the conversation for the game’s top award,” said Jeff Harvey, chairman of the Tewaaraton Foundation. “We congratulate this talented group on starting the season on a positive note and wish them the best of luck this spring.”

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.

Nominees can be players on the watch lists or players not on the watch lists, effectively allowing for a third round of additions.
