March 14, 2013
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Attacker Casey Bocklet (So., South Salem, N.Y.) has been added to the Tewaaraton Award Watch List. Three men and three women have been added to the watch lists, from which the 13th annual Tewaaraton Award winners will be selected and honored May 30, 2013, at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
Bocklet, who has 21 goals and eight assists in seven games this season, joins UVa goalkeeper Kim Kolarik (Sr., Riva, Md.) and defender Megan Dunleavy (Sr., Fairfax Station, Va.) on the list of players who are being considered for the nation’s top lacrosse honor. In February, Kolarik and Dunleavy were named to the initial watch list.
Shannon Gilroy of Florida (27G, 2A, 28 draw controls in 10 games) and Caroline Tarzian of Georgetown (15G, 8A in six games) were also added to the watch list.
A second round of additions will be announced on April 11 (if applicable). Both the men’s and women’s lists will be narrowed to a leading group of 25 Tewaaraton Award nominees that will be announced at a special event on the evening of April 26 at The University Club of Washington, DC. The five men’s and five women’s finalists will be announced May 9. These finalists will be invited to the Tewaaraton Award Ceremony on May 30 in Washington, D.C.
First presented in 2001, the Tewaaraton Award is recognized as the pre-eminent lacrosse award, annually honoring the top male and female college lacrosse players in the United States. Endorsed by the Mohawk Nation Council of Elders and U.S. Lacrosse, the Tewaaraton Award symbolizes lacrosse’s centuries-old roots in Native American heritage. The Tewaaraton Foundation ensures the integrity and advances the mission of this award. Each year, the Tewaaraton Award celebrates one of the six tribal nations of the Iroquois Confederacy – the Mohawk, Cayuga, Oneida, Onondaga, Seneca and Tuscarora – and presents two scholarships to students of Native American descent.
