Colgate attackman Peter Baum won the Tewaaraton Award, an honor given to the best player in college lacrosse.

The junior scored 67 goals and added 30 assists, leading the country in goals per game and points per game. He also led Colgate to the first NCAA tournament victory in program history, a first-round defeat of previously undefeated Massachusetts.


Baum is the first Tewaaraton winner not to play in the national title game since Hofstra’s Doug Shanahan was first honoree in 2001.

Other finalists included Duke long pole CJ Costabile; Massachusetts attackman Will Manny; Loyola attackman Mike Sawyer; and Virginia attackman Steele Stanwick.
