,For those who are not aware of it, the Tewaaraton is Lacrosse' equivalent to the Heisman. Katie won it last year and repeated again this year, beating a talented group including teammate Alex Aust, and UNC captain Kara Cannizzaro. Alex and Katie already were named the attacker and midfielder or the year.
Here is the report from inside lacrosse:
Katie Schwarzmann caps her storied Maryland career with the 2013 Tewaaraton Award, winning college lacrosse's higest individual honor for the second straight year.
The award was presented in a ceremony Thursday at the Smithsonian's Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. Cornell's Rob Pannell won the men's Tewaaraton.
Schwarzmann edged finalists Alex Aust (Maryland), Kara Cannizzaro (North Carolina), Alyssa Murray (Syracuse) and Mikey Meagher (Florida). This is the fourth time the award has gone to a Maryland player as Jen Adams won the first award in 2001, Caitlyn McFadden took it in 2010 and Schwarzmann won it last season. She is the third player to win in back-to-back years.
A four-time All-American, Schwarzmann was named to the third team as a freshman and the first team as a sophomore, junior and senior. She led the Terps to four straight ACC Championships and four straight final four appearances. She was the ACC Championship's most outstanding player for the second straight year and is the 2013 IWLCA Midfielder of the year, an honor she's earned three times in her college career.
One of the best two-way midfielders in the game, Schwarzmann finished the 2013 season with 58 goals, 27 assists, 39 ground balls, 19 caused turnovers and 39 draw controls. She finishes her career ranked third all-time in goals (228) and points (304) at Maryland.
The youngest member of the U.S. National Team, Schwarzmann will look to help Team USA capture the gold medal at the 2013 FIL World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario in July.
