Florida goalie Haley Hicklen, a Towson High graduate, also made the final 25.

Twenty-five nominees for the men's Tewaaraton Award were announced Thursday. Maryland and Loyola Maryland have two candidates each.

Boston College and Northwestern also had three players named as the nominees represent 15 programs.

Five finalists will be announced May 10 and the winner will be named May 31 at the 18th annual Tewaaraton Award Ceremony in Washington, D.C.

Two nominees were also finalists last season — Stony Brook attacker Kylie Ohlmiller and North Carolina midfielder Marie McCool.

Maryland players have won the past six Tewaaraton Awards and eight since Jen Adams won the first in 2001. Zoe Stukenberg (Marriotts Ridge) won last year. Taylor Cummings (McDonogh) became the only three-time winner from 2014 to 2016. Katie Schwarzmann (Century) won in 2012 and 2013. Terps assistant coach Caitlyn (McFadden) Phipps (Notre Dame Prep) won in 2010.

Two others with local ties have also won the Tewaaraton — Duke's Katie Chrest Erbe, a Maryvale graduate, in 2005; and UMBC coach Amy (Appelt) Slade at Virginia in 2004.
