NCAA Lacrosse: Colgate Men’s Lacrosse Attacker Peter Baum (Portland, OR) Wins 2012 Tewaaraton Award; First Winner From West Of The Mississippi

Colgate Men’s Lacrosse Attacker Peter Baum — born and raised in Portland — became the first winner from west of the Mississippi River and the first in Colgate history. His victory capped a suspenseful lead-up to Thursday’s announcement, as there was no clear-cut favorite entering the evening. The Selection Committee traditionally placed significant emphasis on postseason performance — before Baum, each of the last 10 winners played on Memorial Day — but 2012 had a different feel. But Baum was certainly deserving of the award. Three other finalists said Thursday they would select Baum if they had a vote. Baum led the nation in goals (67) and points (97), the latter of which was the most for a finalist since Duke’s Matt Danowski in 2007, setting seven school and Patriot League records in the process. “I certainly didn’t foresee a 97-point season,” Baum said before the ceremony. “I never like to put goal and point total estimates or expectations out there before the season. I never like to predict how I’m going to do. But I definitely felt good coming into the year.” Baum seemed genuinely shocked when his name was announced, dropping his head into his hands for a few seconds before standing and walking to the stage. Later, Baum said: “I’m speechless. This is unbelievable. Everybody has a great shot at the award. With five finalists, you feel like you’ve put a good resume together, but you have no idea how it’s going to go. To be standing here in front of all these people, the Godfathers of the sport if you will, means so much. I’m so proud.”
