WASHINGTON, D.C. — For the second time in his illustrious career, Merrimack College men’s lacrosse senior Charlie Bertrand was named to the Tewaaraton Award Watch List, as announced Thursday night.
The annual award is given to the best player in all divisions of men’s and women’s lacrosse and Bertrand has how been tabbed two years in a row. He is just the second student-athlete in Warrior history to be named to the list, as Corey Lunney ’13 earned the distinction during his senior season.
Bertrand already has two goals in just one game, as he found the back of the net twice in the Warriors’ first NCAA Division I game against Holy Cross Feb. 1. The Baldwinsville, N.Y. native now has 253 points in his collegiate career on 194 goals and 59 assists and is the two-time reigning USILA National Division II Player of the Year.
The senior is one of 50 players in the country on the initial list. The selection committees are made up of premier collegiate coaches and are appointed annually by The Tewaaraton Foundation.
