WASHINGTON - Senior midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) and junior attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) were two of 51 student-athletes to be named to the Tewaaraton Award Watch List presented by Panama Jack which was announced by The Tewaaraton Foundation late last week. The pair and the No. 14/15 Hoyas are 2-1 on the season with a recent overtime victory over No. 19/18 Princeton, 17-16.
Tarzian was a 2013 IWLCA Third Team All-American, First Team All-South and an All-BIG EAST First Team selection last year. She set new career highs and led the team in goals and points with 36 and 50, respectively. Tarzian was one of 25 nominees for the 2013 Tewaaraton Trophy and was a three time BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll selection. It was her first All-American honor. She started all 19 games on attack and has not missed a start in her 39-game career.
Already this season she has six goals and two assists for eight points. She was a Preseason All-BIG EAST selection. This is Tarzian's second nod to the Tewaaraton Watch List.
Freedman was named First Team All-BIG EAST and Second Team All-South Region for the first time in her career a season ago. The midfielder was also selected to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll twice last year. She was second on the team in goals with 31 and third in points with 41. Freedman was second on the team in draw controls with 46, which ranks as the 10th best total in GU history, and had a team-high eight free position goals.
Already this season she has six goals and three assists for nine points as well as 10 draw controls. Freedman was a Preseason All-BIG EAST selection. This is her first-career Tewaaraton honor.
They were two of just five players from the BIG EAST Conference to earn a spot on the 2014 list.
First presented in 2001, the Tewaaraton Award is recognized as the pre-eminent lacrosse award, annually honoring the top male and female college lacrosse players in the United States. Endorsed by the Mohawk Nation Council of Elders and U.S. Lacrosse, the Tewaaraton Award symbolizes lacrosse's centuries-old roots in Native American heritage.
Georgetown will close out its three-game road swing with a contest at No. 6/6 Duke on Wednesday at 5 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN3.
