CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia women’s lacrosse freshman Rachel Clark was one of seven women’s players to be added to the 2022 Tewaaraton Award Watch List, the organization announced on Friday (April 1).

Clark, who was just named an honorable mention Inside Lacrosse Midseason All-American, currently leads the Cavaliers with 50 points on 42 goals and eight assists. Her 42 goals currently rank seventh all-time among UVA freshmen. The Devon, Pa., native has scored in all but one game for UVA, has multiple goals in 10 contests and has scored a hat trick in nine of those.

The attacker joins midfielder Annie Dyson and fellow attacker Ashlyn McGovern from the initial Tewaaraton Watch List.

The initial 2022 Tewaaraton Watch Lists and first round of additions, both presented by AXIA Time, were announced Feb. 10 and March 10. On April 21, the field will be narrowed to 25 men’s and 25 women’s nominees, which can be players on the watch lists or players not on the watch lists, effectively allowing for a third round of additions.

Five men’s and five women’s finalists will be announced in early May and will be invited to the Tewaaraton Award Ceremony in Washington, D.C., on June 2.
