NCAA Lacrosse: Maryland Women’s Lacrosse Sr. Middie Katie Schwarzmann Named 2013 Tewaaraton Award Winner As Nation’s Top Lacrosse Player


Maryland Women's Lacrosse Katie Schwarzmann 2013 Tewaaraton Winner

Senior midfielder Katie Schwarzmann was named the 2013 Tewaaraton Award winner Thursday night at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian.
The Sykesville, Md., native is the first two-time Maryland winner and only the third player to do so in award history. The Tewaaraton Award is given annually to honor the nation’s top male and female collegiate lacrosse player for their extraordinary achievements on the field.
And Schwarzmann was certainly extraordinary in 2013.
The three-time IWLCA National Midfielder of the Year was crowned ACC Championship Most Valuable Player for a second consecutive season after guiding Maryland to its fifth-straight ACC title. Schwarzmann was also named ACC Offensive Player of the Year and is one of only three players to earn All-ACC honors four times.
No one in the country filled up a box score as prolifically as Schwarzmann the past two seasons. She tallied 58 goals, 27 assists, 39 ground balls, 19 caused turnovers and 39 draw controls, and was vital to Maryland’s transition game in 2013 as the Terrapins advanced to their fifth consecutive NCAA Final Four.
She ended her career ranked third all-time in both goals (228) and points (304). Schwarzmann earned a degree in business from the University of Maryland earlier this month and is the reigning ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She will compete with the U.S. women’s national team at the World Cup in Canada this summer.

Rob Pannell has been named the winner of the 2013 Tewaaraton Trophy, the premier award in collegiate lacrosse, in a ceremony held this evening at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC. He becomes the Big Red’s second recipient of the award, joining Max Seibald ’09, and Cornell is now one of four schools to boast multiple Tewaaraton Trophy winners (Duke, Syracuse, UVA).
“It’s a tremendous honor to win such a prestigious award and to be the second Cornellian to win along with my best friend Max Seibald,” said Pannell. “This award really belongs to my team, especially the senior class. It speaks volumes about the great team we had this year and to the success that we had. Without them I would not have received this award tonight. I couldn’t be happier to represent Cornell University and the Cornell Lacrosse family and need to thank everyone that has helped along the way!”
The award is the latest in a long list for Pannell, who was recently named the winner of the USILA Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award, for the Outstanding DI Player of the Year, as well as the Ivy League Player of the Year. He is the first-ever three-time Ivy League Player of the Year in men’s lacrosse and just the fourth player in the history of Division I college lacrosse to be named conference player of the year three times during their career.
The all-time NCAA Division I career points leader (354), Pannell became one of just four Cornell players to earn All-American honors four times during their career when the teams were announced last week. A two-time Tewaaraton Trophy finalist, he has been named first-team All-American for the past three seasons, after earning a third-team selection as a freshman. Pannell is also just the third men’s lacrosse player in the history of the Ivy League to be named a four-time first-team All-Ivy selection.
One of the greatest to ever play the game at Cornell, Pannell has proven to be one of the most consistent players in the country, having registered at least one point in all 72 games of his career. He capped his senior season by ranking third in the nation in points per game (5.67), third overall in assists per game (3.06), and 14th overall in goals per game (2.61).
Pannell finished the 2013 campaign with 102 points, just three off the school record, set by Mike French in 1976. His 55 assists during the season are good for fourth overall in Cornell history, while his 47 goals rank 10th best in a single season.
