Penn State women’s lacrosse: Sophomore McCormick added to award watch list

Sophomore attacker Maggie McCormick of the seventh-ranked Penn State women’s lacrosse team has been added to the Tewaaraton Award Watch List, the foundation announced Thursday. The Tewaaraton Award annually honors the top male and female U.S. lacrosse player across all three NCAA divisions.

During her sophomore season, McCormick has been an offensive force for the Nittany Lions. The Eldersburg, Md., native paces Penn State in goals (28), assists (22) and points (50) and ranks among the nation’s top 30 players in points per game (4.18) and assists.

The sophomore joins midfielder Tatum Coffey on the watch list and is just one goal away from matching her 2012 total and has added seven ground balls, two draw controls and two caused turnovers.
