WASHINGTON, March 20 – The Tewaaraton Foundation has announced the first round of additions to the 2014 Tewaaraton Award Men's and Women's Watch Lists, presented by Panama Jack. The lists include the top players across all three divisions of NCAA lacrosse and highlight the early contenders for the Tewaaraton Award.

"These players have been recognized for their outstanding play during the 2014 season, said Jeff Harvey, Chairman of The Tewaaraton Foundation. "They have the attention of the top coaches and are added to the mix of those that will be considered for the game's top Award."

The Tewaaraton Award annually honors the top male and female college lacrosse player in the United States. The selection committees are comprised of premier collegiate coaches and are appointed annually by the Tewaaraton Foundation.
