As expected, Boston College lacrosse senior Charlotte North has been awarded the 2021 Tewaaraton Award as the best NCAA women’s lacrosse player in the country. North is the second Eagle to win this award, following Sam Apuzzo in 2018.
North was undeniably the best offensive player in the country this season. She scored 102 goals in 21 games, breaking the NCAA single season scoring record by 2 goals. She scored 3+ goals in all but 5 games, including a 10 goal outing at Virginia Tech, and she was a major offensive factor in BC’s NCAA Championships win with 6 goals against Syracuse. And pretty much every single one of her goals all season was highlight reel worthy.
North’s goals alone were the differential in 6 BC wins this season. Along with her 102 goals, North had an impressive .630 shooting percentage this season. She was also second in the country with 136 shots on goal this season.
In addition to her scoring prowess, North was one of the top players in the country on draw controls. She averaged 8.29 draw control wins per game, helping BC to maintain win possession time and time again.
While North was up against some really skilled players this year, it is hard to argue that anyone other than the record-breaking scorer should win this award, especially taking into consideration that scoring is not her only skill.
In her acceptance speech, North thanked her Boston College coaches for changing her life and her Boston College teammates for being her “37 best friends.”
Congrats to Charlotte on this deserved honor!
