Duke University senior attackman Ned Crotty was named the recipient of the 2010 Tewaaraton Trophy as the nation’s top men’s lacrosse player. Crotty
collected the award at a banquet at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian.
Crotty is Duke’s second Tewaaraton Trophy winner after Matt Danowski collected the award in 2007. The other finalists included Ken Clausen (Virginia), Kevin Crowley (Stony Brook), Curtis Dickson (Delaware) and Joel White (Syracuse). Crotty also was a finalist in 2009.
