Dickey Named to Tewaaraton Award Watch List for Second Straight Season
BETHLEHEM, PA. – For the second year in a row, Lehigh’s outstanding lacrosse woman Sondra Dickey has been added to the Tewaaraton Award Watch List, as announced on Thursday. The Tewaaraton Award is given annually to the best male and female college lacrosse players in the USA. The selection boards are made up of senior college coaches and are appointed annually by the Tewaaraton Foundation. Dickey is the first student athlete in program history to be on the watchlist for several years.
The lists include the top players from all three divisions of NCAA Lacrosse and highlight the early candidates for the Tewaaraton Award 2021. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the award.
Dickey currently leads the Mountain Hawks in goals (11), points (12) and sales (6), she is second in groundballs (9) and third in draw controls (7). Dickey started the season with a career high of eight goals against Drexel and helped her win the Patriot League midfielder of the week for the first two consecutive weeks. As has been the case throughout her career, Dickey has made a name for herself all over the field, making eight ground balls and five turnovers in the last two games. In her career, Dickey ranks third in program history in goals (172) and fourth in points (222). She is first in draw controls (206) and third in generated sales (83), while she is nearing the top 10 in both assists (50) and ground balls (117). She is a two-time first-team All-Patriot League and an All-Region second-team award winner.
Last spring, Dickey joined Lauren Dykstra (2011) as the two student athletes in program history to be on the Tewaaraton Award Watch List.
The Mountain Hawks will open the Patriot League game on Saturday when they travel to American for an opening draw at 3pm on ESPN +.
