Feb. 28, 2014
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – Boston College juniors Covie Stanwick and Mikaela Rix have earned spots on the women’s watch list for the 2014 Tewaaraton Award, announced by the Tewaaraton Foundation in Washington, D.C.
Stanwick, a native of Baltimore, Md., has recorded 17 points on nine goals and eight assists through BC’s first four games. She was also named one of six finalists for ILWomen.com’s 2014 Player of the Year.
Rix, a product of Garden City, N.Y., has recorded 16 points on a team-best 13 goals and three assists. The junior midfielder earned WomensLax.com’s Player of the Week honors for the week of Feb. 17 after leading the Eagles to a 15-10 upset over the then 11th -ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish. She also garnered ACC Player of the Week accolades the same week.
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.
