As Boston College women’s lacrosse continues to dominate on the field, 4 Eagles have been named to the Tewaaraton Watch List for 2018. The Tewaaraton Award honors the top male and female college lacrosse players in the US. The 4 Eagles on the list are part of a list of 50 women named to the initial ballot. They are Sam Apuzzo, Dempsey Arsenault, Elizabeth Miller and Kenzie Kent.
Apuzzo is a junior and been a key part of BC’s offense since her freshman year. She has 34 goals so far this season, leading not only her team but the entire NCAA. She also leads the NCAA with 47 points and is second (behind teammate Kaileen Hart) with 13 assists. This season, Apuzzo has broken program records in draw controls in a single game (11) and goals in a single game (9).
Arsenault is also a junior, and has shown great improvement this season. She has 21 goals and 31 points already this season in just 7 games, despite having only 15 goals and 23 points all of last year. Arsenault also has scored a pair of GWGs this season.
Miller is the third BC junior named to the watch list. A strong defensive player, Miller has helped BC hold opponents to only 2 goals twice already this season. Miller has caused 7 turnovers this season and has already scored a career high 3 goals.
Kent is the lone BC senior on the list, and the only Eagle that hasn’t yet played in a (lacrosse) game this year. Although she is still competing for BC’s women’s hockey team, Kent is such a standout in lacrosse that she has been preemptively added to the list. Kent scored 77 points in only 12 games last season and set a record with 37 points scored over 5 NCAA Tournament games.
Best of luck to all 4 Eagles on the watch list - keep doing us proud!
