The Tewaaraton Foundation has announced the first round of additions to the 2019 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 this year’s Tewaaraton Award.
Amherst senior attackman Evan Wolf (Lower Merion) was one of the additions. The reigning NESCAC Player of the Week, Wolf was nothing short of sensational on offense for the Mammoths last week, recording 12 points and a 57.9 shooting percentage behind a seven goal effort against the Diplomats and a four goal, one assist performance versus RIT. The Wynnewood native currently ranks 13th in the nation in points per game (5.83) with 24 goals and 11 assists on the year.
“We’ve seen an amazing, action-packed start to the 2019 season, and these players have clearly jumped out as deserving to be on our 2019 Watch Lists,” said Jeffrey Harvey, Chairman of the Tewaaraton Foundation. “The Tewaaraton Foundation would like to offer sincere congratulations to these players on their accomplishments and wish them luck the rest of this season.”
The Tewaaraton Award annually honors the top male and female college lacrosse player in the United States. The selection committees are comprised of premier college coaches and are appointed annually by the Tewaaraton Foundation.
