Lyle Thompson’s record-shattering college career added one last honor Thursday night: A second consecutive Tewaaraton Award.
The Albany attackman, who set NCAA career marks for assists (225) and points (400), collected college lacrosse’s highest honor again Thursday in Washington. Thompson shared the Tewaaraton with his brother Miles last year.
Lyle Thompson, who last week won the USILA’s Enners Award as the nation’s most outstanding player, had 52 goals and 69 assists this season while leading the Great Danes to their third consecutive America East title and an appearance in the NCAA tournament quarterfinals for the second year in a row.
