Siena senior goalie Brent Herbst, who helped lead the Saints to their first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference lacrosse championship and inaugural NCAA tournament appearance a year ago, has been named to the 2010 Tewaaraton Trophy Watch List.

The Tewaarton Award, established in 2000, is the pre-eminent lacrosse award presented annually to the NCAA men’s and women’s Player of the Year.

Selected an All-America honorable mention a year ago, Herbst started 17 of 18 games and posted a 6.34 goals-against average, which was second-best in the nation. His .617 save percentage was fourth.

He was named the MAAC tournament Most Outstanding Player.

The Tewaarton Watch List is comprised of the top players in all three divisions of college lacrosse. This year’s list represents 35 schools and 13 conferences.

Tradition dictates that each year the Tewaarton Award celebrates one of six tribal nations of the Iroquois Confederacy: the Mohawk, Cayuga, Oneida, Onondaga, Seneca and the Tuscarora. This year will be the “Year of the Seneca.”

The award will be presented June 3 at the Smithsonian National Museum of the Amer­ican Indian in Washington, D.C.
