WASHINGTON, D.C. - Loyola University Maryland junior Zach Herreweyers was added to the Tewaaraton Award Watch List on Thursday morning, joining his fellow Greyhounds attacker Nikko Pontrello in the group of players up for the nation's top men's lacrosse individual award.
Herreweyers is third nationally in goals scored (29) and fifth in goals per game (3.63) through games of Wednesday, March 18.
The native of London, Ontario, has scored two or more goals in each of the Greyhounds' games this season, tallying career-highs of six against both Lehigh University and the U.S. Military Academy and hat tricks in five outings.
A two-time Corvias Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week, Herreweyers leads the conference in scoring, and he paces Loyola in shot percentage while converting on 29 of his 65 shots this season, a clip of 44.6 percent.
In 19 career games, Herreweyers has scored 49 goals for an average of 2.58 per game. With one more, he will be the second-fastest in school history to reach 50 goals behind only two-time All-American Gavin Prout (2000-2001). He has tallied hat tricks in more than half of his collegiate games (10-of-19).
Herreweyers and the Greyhounds resume Patriot League play on Saturday, March 21, at 4:30 p.m. when they take on Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania.
