2013 Tewaaraton Award Men's and Women's Watch Lists

New postby DakotaDan on Fri Feb 22, 2013 9:59 am

WASHINGTON, February 22, 2013 � The Tewaaraton Foundation has announced the 2013 Tewaaraton Award men's and women's watch lists. The lists include the top players across all three divisions of NCAA lacrosse and highlight the early contenders for the 2013 Tewaaraton Award.

Among 2013 watch lists returnees are reigning Tewaaraton Award winners Peter Baum (Colgate) and Katie Schwarzmann (Maryland), as well six former finalists. On the men's side, 2012 finalists Will Manny (Massachusetts) and Mike Sawyer (Loyola) are joined by 2011 finalist Rob Pannell (Cornell). Three 2012 women's finalists Brittany Dashiell (Florida), Taylor Thornton (Northwestern) and Michelle Tumolo (Syracuse) all return to the watch list this year.

"The national reach of quality players is evident in this list, with players from all regions of the country, along with a strong group of eight former winners and finalists," said Jeff Harvey, chairman of The Tewaaraton Foundation. "As the season unfolds, we are excited for another deserving group of Tewaaraton Award candidates to emerge."

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 along side 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.

The Ceremony Is Cool.

New postby Turtles Lax on Fri Feb 22, 2013 10:31 am

TL suggests one and all make plans and attend the Tewaaraton Award ceremony. It is a grand time, beautiful venue, and most of the attendees are reasonably well behaved.

There is a splendid cocktail reception "pre-game" and you would be surprised to see the interactions among the families, friends, fans, and players. TL has never been so happy in the presence of enemy forces. :lol:

And last years' tailgate party was waaaaaay fun...'til the champagne was gone!!!! Guarantee you would be surprised by those in attendance. Rather an eclectic crew. :dance:

Come play with us!!!!!!

Peace, out.

Pretty cool that you can be nominated for the Tewaaraton after one game... :wink:

Anyways, yes, we all know these are great players—congrats to all!

No madness, just a list based on last seasons play, similar to a pre-season All Americans. The list can be added to based on in season play and will eventually be whittled down, in steps, to a final 5.

I know what it is BRM and I don't like it. And again I don't care what other sports do, this is Lacrosse! We don't have to do stuff like everybody else.

Not sure what the problem is. Just making the list is recognition of a job well done. Something wrong with that?

2013 Tewaaraton Award Men's and Women's Watch Lists

New postby rafterjack on Sat Feb 23, 2013 1:53 pm

Lar, let me see. Big Red- Lar doesn't ... Hmm? I know its in there somewhere. Anyway, Lar has a 'thing' with such as this 'early' list (I think it you, Larry, right, that has had that, 'thing' from year to year?)

He wants games, contests, competitions behind us before we go saying this team, this player, etc., is best, that team, player, isn't...etc. I think I got it right. But is in his past contributions (prior posts) herein (if I am right/wrong) (and if it isn't Lar, just then apply it to whomever it might be, OK?)

Oh he a stickler on such.
We love him for his consistency, being (yearly) agressively outloud noisy re this.

Further, I heard - may be apocryphal, someone one year posted just such a 'early list', teams or players (to 'smoke' Larry out...)

Same day he responded with a 'rant' (I hear...)! :dance:
Just say-in'.

LowDO9- I went back to the list after you commented. I'm there naively looking for any freshmen on the early T. list. Then realized you like Lar think, wait, say- for a body of work to develop. I'm OK with it coming out now- especially as my team... ["Cheer when the team in Green appears..." La. La. ] has two, and no other Ivy has two.

:happy-jumpgreen: :banana-skier: :flags-usa:

La La.
When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer, maybe.

Well Rafter I'm sure all these hard working laxers who got a shout out are feeling bad about Lar's ire.

The way some of you think is beyond my comprehension. You ever play college sports because if you did you want to know, as a player, who everyone thinks is the best so you can out perform them on the field. Everyone wants to beat the best even if it's the first game of the season. This is a preseason ranking of the young women that have proven themselves and that will prove themselves. It allows most of us to follow the really good players and if someone appears on the radar that should be included on this list, then the experts will make that decision. Appreciate the hard work in deciding who the cream of the crop is for this award at this moment. Makes it fun to follow their progress. You will see that the past lists have been correct and present list will no doubt determine the best player. It's never to early to speculate and I think it's a good thing having this at the beginning of the season and should never be changed in any sport.

Sting - believe me, players don't need a list to know who's who and what they are up against. When i played (some time after the age of enlightenment) there was no list, no Internet, no cell phones, no video to study but word of mouth was lightning fast and player reps were still there.

Rollin JohnnyBoy Style on this one..

Never ever needed a list to tell me who was good in my sports... I either played against them...Saw them play... or Heard about them from players/coaches who knew the sport.. No lists spoke for us.. Our Game did the talking...

Agreed, when I played, we didn't hang out on-line to know who was who......we went down to the Mt. Washington Tavern and hung out with and talked about who was good.

Wouldn't it make more sense to have a list of players who actually have a shot at winning the thing? There are a few D2 and D3 guys on the Men's List. Do you think any of them has REAL shot of taking the award home? Same thing on the Women's side. There are 3 or 4 D2, D3 players on the "Watch list"( :roll: ) and they can watch until the cows return to the Barn...they have no shot of winning the thing. So, IMO, this list is nothing more than a silly patronizing pat on the head.
I have said this for years, that there needs to be a Tewaaraton for each division men's and women's. That's the only way this thing will ever be fair and equal. Many of you are always arguing with me about the differences between players in D1, D2 and D3, yet NOW it's okay to lump them altogether and claim they're being "recognized" equally. Yeah, okay! :? :roll:

Look I'm not advocating using the Tewaaraton watch list as a scouting report to game plan. A good coaching staff will have alerted their players to the strengths, weaknesses and tendencies of upcoming opponents. What I'm saying is that recognizing the hard work and dedication of players, who toil largely in obscurity, Is not such a bad thing, especially when compared to the treatment of their counterparts of the glamour sports who are feted, fretted about and fawned over.

To illustrate this point let me recount a conversation I had with good friends and former neighbours who were (the husband) transferred to Exxon/Mobil in Houston. Their daughter, a swimmer, enrolled in a large, 5A, school in the Houston suburbs. One of the first items of business of the new school year for my friends was to attend the "Sports Night" production where parents could meet and get to know the coaches of the various Fall athletic teams. Each coach introduced him/herself and gave a roughly 5 to 10 minute talk describing team rules, academic requirements, competition etc.. The last to speak was the football conglomerate. First to report was the head of the Football boosters club followed by each of the 7 position coaches who preceded the Offensive and Defensive coordinators. To top it off the head coach, who was the last to speak, at the conclusion of his talk, invited all interested attendees to review game film of the upcoming opponent.

Now I know that Texas High School football is a different animal altogether but there exists a wide gulf in coverage between major and minor sports throughout High School, College and professional sports. Women collegiate lacrosse players are scholar athletes in every sense of the term. They make large sacrifices for neither fame nor fortune but rather love of the game. They represent their respective academic institutions in a positive manner, stay out of trouble and are great role models for generations of young women following behind. And for most of these players their careers end at the conclusion of their senior year.

So for all these reasons I do not begrudge the players on the watch list from receiving a shout out and some love from the Tewaaraton committee. Is it perfect? No. Does it recognize the current season achievements? No. But, as I mentioned before, names can be added to this list based on current performance. And, who knows, if a certain couple of players continue with their level of production we could see two freshmen added to the list. Could the committee wait until the end of the season to announce the 5 finalists? Yes but then there would be; 45 players + without the recognition of being considered for the sports highest honour, 45 + players whose parents wouldn't have an article to attach to the frig or send to the grandparents, 45 players + whose parents and siblings would be deprived of a little bragging to friends, neighbours and colleagues, and last, 45 players + whose current SID's, hometown papers and former high schools would be deprived of an article extolling their achievements.

So I say err on the side of more recognition (for the few of you who consider the publication of an early watch list as being an error). And, by the way, I'm in agreement with Larry that separate awards should be given to D2 and D3 participants. A player whose resume was built against lower level competition can't be fairly judged versus the achievements of a D1 player.

Hey Big Red.....

This Old Geezer read the Watch List, knows how and why it exists, and has no objection. My reaction is more of a "My How Times Change," thing then anything else. Nothing could be more obvious to me then if you have a big award with a big presentation, then you have to promote it in some fashion. So release the lists, get people talking about it, and have a great event.

And I might add that if anyone wants to meet at the newly renovated Mt. Washington Tavern, we could happily discuss the list and elaborate on those players we have seen.
