Washington, D.C. - Senior Jeff Tundo (Orchard Park, N.Y.) of the Stony Brook men's lacrosse team has been named to the 2013 Tewaaraton Award watchlist, the foundation announced Friday morning. Tundo, a co-captain, is second on the team with five goals in two games.

A transfer from Ohio State, Tundo led the Seawolves with 28 assists and tallied 45 points last season. He's tied for 11th among all active players with 56 career assists, and has scored at least one goal in five straight games.

The Tewaaraton Award annually honors the top male and top female college lacrosse player in the United States. The selection committees are made up of top collegiate coaches and are appointed annually by The Tewaaraton Foundation. Committees will make additions to these lists as the season progresses and athletes earn a spot along side these elite players. Both lists will be narrowed to 25 men's and women's nominees in late April. In mid-May, five men's and five women's finalists will be announced. These finalists will be invited to Washington, D.C. for the 13th annual Tewaaraton Award Ceremony, May 30 at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian.
