Tewaaraton Foundation Release | ACC Release
Boston College sophomore Covie Stanwick has earned a spot on the women's watch list for the 2013 Tewaaraton Award, according to an announcement from the Tewaaraton Foundation in Washington, D.C.
Stanwick, a native of Baltimore, Md., has recorded 13 points on a team-best nine goals and four assists through BC's first two games. As a freshman, Stanwick earned ACC Rookie of the Year honors to go with All-ACC accolades after registering 55 points on 28 goals and 27 assists.
Last season, former Eagles Brittany Wilton and Kristin Igoe were named to the award's watch list. Stanwick's brother, Steele Stanwick, won the men's Tewaaraton Award in 2011.
Each year, the Tewaaraton Award celebrates one of the six tribal nations of the Iroquois Confederacy - the Mohawk, Cayuga, Oneida, Onondaga, Seneca and Tuscarora. While 2013 is The Year of the Mohawk, the men's watch list includes three members of the Onondaga Nation in Lyle, Miles and Ty Thompson from Albany.
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. Committees will make additions to these lists as the season progresses and athletes earn a spot alongside these elite players. Both lists will be narrowed to 25 men's and women's nominees in late April. In mid-May, five men's and five women's finalists will be announced. These finalists will be invited to Washington, D.C. for the 13th annual Tewaaraton Award Ceremony, May 30 at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian.
