April 29, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Penn State women’s lacrosse senior standout Madison Cyr was named a nominee for the Tewaaraton Award as one of the top 25 players in college lacrosse on Friday night.

Cyr and the other 24 women’s nominees will be whittled down to a list of five finalists with their male counterparts on May 12. The 16th annual Tewaaraton Award Ceremony will be held June 2 in Washington, D.C.

Cyr is a first-time nominee and represents the fifth Nittany Lion woman to be among the top 25 nominees. Cyr represents the fourth occasion an athlete under head coach Missy Doherty’s tutelage as a nominee joining Dana Cahill (2012) and Maggie McCormick (2013, 2015).

Currently in the midst of a career season, Cyr leads the team in goals (47), points (63), shots (105), ground balls (28) and caused turnovers (30). Cyr has scored in every game this season and is currently on a 25-game scoring streak dating back to last year. This season, Cyr has tallied at least two points in every game and has 10 hat tricks.

Cyr’s two goals last night versus No. 1 Maryland brought her career total to 144 which has her in sole position for 8th all-time at Penn State. Her three points brought her career total to 182 for 15th all-time at Penn State.

Cyr’s honor on the nominee list is all the more impressive as she was not part of either of the three watch lists from the preseason and in-season.
