SYRACUSE, NY — Syracuse lacrosse star Meaghan Tyrrell was named one of five finalists for the women’s Tewaaraton Award on Thursday, becoming the first SU player to be among the final contenders for the most prestigious award since Kayla Treanor in 2016 of sport sat.

The 2022 Tewaaraton Award will be presented on June 2nd in Washington DC at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of the American Indian.

Other finalists on the women’s side include last year’s winner Charlotte North of Boston College, North Carolina’s Ally Mastoianni and Jamie Ortega, and Maryland’s Aurora Cordingley.

No Syracuse men’s player was among the finalists this year, although it was a former Orange player. Logan Wisnauskas of Maryland, who wore the red shirt as a freshman before joining the Terrapins, was one of the five men’s finalists. Kevin Rice was the last Syracuse player to be named a finalist in 2015.

Tyrrell, a senior, ranks first among the women’s finalists (and second in the country) in shot percentage, scoring 63.8 percent of her shots. She is second among finalists (and sixth in the country) averaging 5.5 points per game. She has scored six game-winning goals and committed just 20 turnovers this season.

Tyrell is the fifth SU player in program history to be named a finalist for the award, along with Treanor, Katie Rowan, Michelle Tumolo and Alyssa Murray.

Syracuse has earned a 5th place finish for the NCAA tournament where they will play Fairfield in Princeton on Friday. The Orange advanced to the championship game last year before losing to Boston College.

The men’s finalists were Wisnauskas, North Carolina’s Chris Gray, Penn’s Sam Handley, Army’s Brendan Nietzsche and Virginia’s Connor Shellenberger.
