The Tewaaraton Award, which recently brought on the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association as its presenting sponsor, brings top Division I lacrosse players, their coaches and leaders of the game together to recognize the most outstanding men’s and women’s athletes at the end of each season. The event is held in Washington, D.C., just blocks away from the United States Capital. Former Georgetown standout Sheehan Stanwick and Joe Beninati, announcer for the NHL’s Washington Capitals, return as hosts of the 2018 show.

For us here at LaxAllStars, it’s a real honor and privilege to share this announcement. In its eighteen year history, the Tewaaraton Foundation has been dedicated to growing the game through college scholarship funds for underprivileged Native youth in the United States. The Award goes to the best collegiate lacrosse players who have a tendency to become the greatest ambassadors for our game.
Look no further than Matt Danowski (2007) and Ned Crotty (2010), assistant coaches for the Duke men’s lacrosse team, as examples. Each received the award during his respective playing days for the Blue Devils. Now an attackman for Duke who’s studied under them for four years is a front runner for the 2018 Tewaaraton Award.
Other notable recipients of the Tewaaraton Award include Mike
Overall, the Tewaaraton Foundation continues to build momentum and strengthen its leadership of the lacrosse industry. With its new backing from the IWLCA and an increased focus on inclusive fundraising events, the organization is poised to reach more youth lacrosse players than ever before this year.
The team at LaxAllStars feels blessed to be a part of these efforts, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for the 2018 finalists.
