Two Loyola Women's Lacrosse Players Named as Tewaaraton Trophy Nominees

April 27, 2004

Washington, DC -Seniors Tara Singleton and Rachel Shuck are among the twenty women that have been named Tewaaraton Trophy Nominees. They have been selected as candidates for the fourth annual Tewaaraton Award, the most coveted and prestigious award a varsity lacrosse player can receive and a symbol of excellence in college lacrosse. In early May, five players from this list will be named the Trophy Finalists.

The Tewaaraton Trophy is awarded each year to the top male and female college varsity lacrosse player, as chosen by the selection committee.

Shuck, a senior captain, is second on the Loyola squad in scoring this season with 15 goals and 29 assists. Her 29 assists in 2004, combined with 52 from her first two season of eligibility give her the Greyhound school record for assists in a career with 81. Shuck currently ranks fifth in the nation in assists per game with an average of 1.93.

Singleton, also a senior captain, is a cornerstone of the Loyola defensive unit that currently ranks ninth in the country and finished first in the nation in 2003. She leads the team in caused turnovers with 32, ranking her ninth in the country in that category. Singleton has also recorded a goal and 28 groundballs this season.

The trophy will be presented in Washington, DC, on June 3, 2004 at a banquet honoring the finalists and trophy winners. The ceremony will be held at the National Geographic Society Auditorium and broadcast by CSTV.
