Boston College junior Sam Apuzzo was named recipient of the Tewaaraton Award, given to the nation’s top male and female college lacrosse player, at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., on Thursday night.
Apuzzo is the first Eagle to win the award in the history of the women’s lacrosse program. Boston College has had 10 Tewaaraton Award nominees. This is Apuzzo’s second consecutive season as a Top 5 finalist.
Apuzzo led the Eagles to an undefeated regular season (17-0), seventh appearance in the NCAA Tournament and second consecutive NCAA Championship game appearance. The Eagles finished the season 22-2 and set a school record for wins in a season.
