CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia men's lacrosse senior attackman Steele Stanwick was named the 2012 recipient of the Turnball Award, as announced Friday by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. The Jack Turnball Award is given annually by the USILA to the top collegiate attackman in the nation.
"It is an exciting moment for everyone associated with Virginia Lacrosse to have Steele recognized as the Turnbull Award winner," said Virginia men's lacrosse head coach Dom Starsia. "He had a tremendous 2012 season and was our offensive leader throughout the year. Despite being marked by the nation's outstanding defensive players and being the focus of our opponent's preparation every game, he had his best season. Steele graduates from Virginia on a very short list of the finest players to have ever walked the Grounds."
Stanwick becomes the fourth Cavalier to earn the award and the first since Michael Watson in 1996. Roddy Marino (1986) and Gordon Jones (1952) are the other Cavaliers to win the Turnball Award. Stanwick represents the 16th time a player from an ACC school has won the award and it's the sixth time in the last eight years an ACC player has received the honor. The award has been given annually from the USILA since 1946.
Stanwick is the reigning Tewaaraton Trophy winner and a finalist again this season. The Baltimore, Md., native finished his season leading the nation with 51 assists and is No. 2 in the country with 5.0 points per game. His 269 career points are tops in the UVa annals and are tied for No. 18 all-time at the NCAA Division I level. Stanwick, the back-to-back ACC Player of the Year, also is a two-time USILA first team All-American. He was a second team All-American in 2010 and is a finalist for the 2012 Lowe's Senior CLASS Award.
The Turnbull Award is named after National Lacrosse Hall of Fame alumnus Jack Turnbull, widely regarded as one of the best to ever play the game after a stellar career in the 1930s at Johns Hopkins. Turnball, as a Lieutenant Colonel with the Maryland National Guard, died of injuries when his B-24 crashed in Belgium after a mid-air collision while returning from a bombing run over Germany during World War II.
