WASHINGTON, D.C., April 18, 2011 -- James Madison redshirt sophomore Casey Ancarrow (Jarrettsville, Md./John Carroll) is among 24 nominees for the 2011 Tewaaraton Award, given to the nation's top college lacrosse player.

The Tewaaraton Award is presented annually following the collegiate season to the top female and male varsity collegiate lacrosse players in the United States.  Tewaaraton is the name the Mohawk Indian nation gave to its game and the progenitor of present-day lacrosse.

Ancarrow and senior teammate Mary Kate Lomady (Abington, Pa./Abington) were named to the Tewaaraton Award watch list in early March.  The watch list was expanded from 48 to 55 players on April 6.

Five finalists will be selected from the nominees and will be invited to the June award ceremony where the winner will be announced.

"In now its 11th year, the Tewaaraton Award continues to establish itself as the pre-eminent collegiate lacrosse honor," said Robert Sweeney, President of the Greater Washington Sports Alliance.  "This year's field is one of the best yet, and our selection committees have done a tremendous job sorting through the brightest talent in the college lacrosse world.  We are looking forward to another exciting finish to the lacrosse season and seeing what the nation's best players have to offer."

The Tewaaraton Award will be presented on June 2, 2011 at the historic Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C.  Event details and ticket information can be found at
