Cummings wins third-straight Tewaaraton Award

Taylor Cummings

Taylor Cummings’ trophy case has to be over-flowing at this point. But what else would you expect from the greatest collegiate women’s lacrosse player ever?

Cummings added another piece to her collection on Thursday. He won a third-straight Tewaaraton Award, becoming the first-ever three-time winner of the prestigious honor that is given to the nation’s top male and female college lacrosse players.

“I’m so incredibly honored to win the Tewaaraton for a third time,” she said. “Our season didn’t end the way we wanted, but I’m so proud to call every one of those women my teammates. I’m proud to forever call myself a Terp. This award is for everyone on my team and my coaches who helped me get here.”

Though the Terps did not complete their quest for an undefeated season with a National Championship Cummings co-captained the Terps for the Big Ten regular season and tournament titles and to their fourth-straight national championship game. And in the season she set Maryland single-season records with 114 draw controls and 52 caused turnovers.

She also scored 60 goals with 19 assists, 72 points and 62 ground balls. In her career she is third all-time in school history with 229 goals, ninth with 94 assists, second with 323 points and is the all-time leader with 509 draw controls.

In her career, the Ellicott City native accumulated numerous awards. Along with being a three-time Tewaaraton Award winner, Cummings was named the 2016 Big Ten Midfielder of the Year, the 2016 Big Ten Tournament MVP and was a four-time first team All-American. She was the NCAA Championship Most Outstanding Player in 2015 and 2014 and has already been a member of the US National Team the past two seasons.

Maryland defender Alice Mercer was one of five Tewaaraton finalist along with Cummings.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
