Both lists will be narrowed to a leading group of 25 Tewaaraton Award nominees in late April, with the five men's and five women's finalists to be announced in mid-May. These finalists will be invited to the Tewaaraton Award Ceremony.
"The men's and women's selection committees continue to work diligently throughout the season to identify the top lacrosse players in the nation," said Jeff Harvey, chairman of the Tewaaraton Foundation. "We are proud to recognize these worthy additions to this year's watch lists and look forward to the remaining college lacrosse action this season."
