In a state sweep, Loyola Maryland’s Spencer, Maryland’s Taylor claim Tewaaraton Awards

The 19th annual Tewaaraton Award ceremony in Washington on Thursday night had a Maryland flavor to it as seniors Pat Spencer of Loyola Maryland and Megan Taylor of Maryland were honored as the nation’s top male and female college lacrosse players this past season.

Spencer, an attackman from Davidsonville who graduated from Boys’ Latin, is the first player in Greyhounds history to capture the Tewaaraton since its inception in 2001. Taylor, a Glenelg graduate, is the first goalkeeper to win the award and the sixth Terps women’s player to do so.

Spencer and Taylor were honored at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian.
