April 10, 2014
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass.- Boston College sophomore midfielder Sarah Mannelly has earned a spot on the women’s watch list for the 2014 Tewaaraton Award, announced Thursday by the Tewaaraton Foundation in Washington, D.C. She joins teammates Covie Stanwick and Mikaela Rix on the list.
Mannelly, a native of New Canaan, Conn., has recorded 41 points on 33 goals and eight assists throughout the season. Additionally, the midfielder has tallied 14 ground balls and added 12 caused turnovers in crucial moments.
She was also recently named ACC Offensive Player of the Week for her performances against Holy Cross and No. 8 Duke. Mannelly totaled eight points on seven goals and one assist while leading the Eagles to a 2-0 week, which included a 13-11 win at No. 8 Duke. The New Canaan, Conn., native started the week with a three-point performance (2g, 1a) in an 11-5 victory at Holy Cross. Mannelly followed that up with five goals in the comeback win at Duke, including the go-ahead goal with 12 seconds remaining in the first half to give Boston College a 9-8 lead entering halftime. She scored once more in the second half to help the Eagles to a two-goal cushion and eventual win.
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.
