Maryland's Taylor Cummings beat out Kayla Treanor for the Tewaaraton Award for the third straight year.

Syracuse attack Kayla Treanor did not win the Tewaaraton Award Thursday night, marking the third year in a row she was named one of the five finalists, but didn’t win the award. Instead, Maryland’s Taylor Cummings took home college lacrosse’s top individual honor for a record-setting third year in a row.

It was a record-setting year individually for Treanor. Her 217 draw controls set the single-season NCAA record and her 50 goals gave her 260 for her career, most in program history. She also finished her illustrious career with 393 points, which is second most in SU history and fourth most in NCAA history.

The Orange’s season, and Treanor’s career, ended on May 27 in the semifinals of the NCAA tournament against Maryland in a blowout 19-9 loss in Chester, Pennsylvania.

“Kayla Treanor is amazing … the greatest Syracuse lacrosse player ever,” Syracuse head coach Gary Gait said after the game. “If she’s not the most amazing player … for a single player to make that much of a difference is amazing.”
