Watch List nominees are screened and selected by men’s and women’s selection committees, which consist of collegiate coaches. Each selection committee narrows down the Watch Lists, and one male and one female lacrosse player are awarded the Tewaaraton Trophy.
“We welcome these additions to the Tewaaraton Award Watch List. The Selection Committees have worked diligently to identify the best lacrosse players in the nation,” said Robert Sweeney, President of the Greater Washington Sports Alliance. “I can assure everyone that the Tewaaraton Awards Advisory Council, which consists of some of the top lacrosse enthusiasts in the Greater Washington area has also been working incredibly hard to make this year’s 10th anniversary celebration the best awards ceremony to date.”
The award will be presented on June 3rd, 2010 at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
