WASHINGTON — The Tewaaraton Foundation has announced the 2013 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 the 2013 Tewaaraton Award.

Among 2013 watch lists returnees are reigning Tewaaraton Award winners Peter Baum (Colgate) and Katie Schwarzmann (Maryland), as well six former finalists. On the men's side, 2012 finalists Will Manny (Massachusetts) and Mike Sawyer (Loyola) are joined by 2011 finalist Rob Pannell (Cornell). Three 2012 women's finalists Brittany Dashiell (Florida), Taylor Thornton (Northwestern) and Michelle Tumolo (Syracuse) all return to the watch list this year. In total, the men's watch list includes 92 players from 55 schools, while the women's watch list is comprised of 50 players from 32 schools.

"The national reach of quality players is evident in this list, with players from all regions of the country, along with a strong group of eight former winners and finalists," said Jeff Harvey, chairman of The Tewaaraton Foundation. "As the season unfolds, we are excited for another deserving group of Tewaaraton Award candidates to emerge."

Each year, the Tewaaraton Award celebrates one of the six tribal nations of the Iroquois Confederacy — the Mohawk, Cayuga, Oneida, Onondaga, Seneca and Tuscarora. 2013 is the Year of the Mohawk and the men's watch list includes a member of the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation in Ty Thompson and two members of the Onondaga Nation in his cousins Lyle and Miles Thompson. All three play for Albany, and the trio accounted for 10 of the Great Danes' 16 goals in their season-opening double-overtime win at Syracuse.

The Tewaaraton Award annually honors the top male and top female college lacrosse player in the United States. The selection committees are made up of top collegiate coaches and are appointed annually by The Tewaaraton Foundation. Committees will make additions to these lists as the season progresses and athletes earn a spot along side these elite players. Both lists will be narrowed to 25 men's and women's nominees in late April. In mid-May, five men's and five women's finalists will be announced. These finalists will be invited to Washington, D.C. for the 13th annual Tewaaraton Award Ceremony, May 30 at the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of the American Indian.
