On Thursday, Katie Schwarzmann, a junior midfielder from the University of Maryland, was honored with the Tewaaraton Award, which is given to the nation's best female and male collegiate lacrosse players each year. Schwarzmann led Maryland to the national semifinals, where they lost out to eventual champions Northwestern, 9-7.
Schwarzmann had 72 goals and 22 assists for 94 total points on the year. She was also the ACC Offensive Player of the Year and ACC Championship Most Valuable Player. She becomes the third Terrapin to win the award, joining Jen Adams (2001) and Caitlyn McFadden (2010).
