WASHINGTON, D.C. - For the first time in program history, two Boston College athletes have been named Tewaaraton Award Finalists, as announced by the committee on Thursday. Reigning award recipient Sam Apuzzo is joined by classmate Dempsey Arsenault in the group of five finalists. The Tewaaraton Award is given annually to the best male and female college lacrosse players in the nation.
Apuzzo became Boston College's first finalist since Sarah Mannelly in 2015 last year en route to becoming the program's first recipient. As a junior, Apuzzo put up 129 points over 24 games played, earning ACC Attacker of the Year, ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year and All-ACC First Team nods, while also becoming BC's first Honda Award for Lacrosse recipient.
