Ancarrow on National Player of Year List:
 Redshirt senior Casey Ancarrow is among 50 players named to the watch list for the 2013 Tewaaraton Trophy, given to the nation's top college lacrosse player.
     Ancarrow, an attacker, is the 2013 Colonial Athletic Association preseason Player of the Year, a Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association All-America honoree and a former member of the U.S. National Team.  She was the CAA Player of the Year in 2012.
     In 2011 and 2012 Ancarrow was also named to the Tewaaraton Trophy Watch List.,  In 2011 she was among 24 athletes from the Watch List to be nominated for the Tewarraton Trophy.
     In late April the Tewaaraton selection committee will narrow the list to 25 nominees, and in mid-May five finalists will be announced.  
     This marks the 12th time since 2002 that a JMU player has been in the running for the Tewaaraton Trophy.  Others include Mary Kate Lomady (2011), Kim Griffin (2010), Annie Wagner (2008), Kelly Berger (2007), Ashlee Dardine (2005), Gail Decker (2003, 2004) and Lisa Staedt (2002, 2003).  Decker was one of five finalists in 2004 and Staedt was one of five finalists in 2003.
