Becker, captain of Princeton's lacrosse team, was named the 2003 Tewaaraton Trophy recipient as lacrosse's most outstanding athlete.
The award, given annually to the sport's top male and female college lacrosse players in the nation, was given to Becker and Virginia senior Chris Rotelli after they led their respective teams to NCAA championships this past spring.
Becker is also this year's Honda Award winner for lacrosse and is a first-team All-America selection for the third year in a row. She led her team to a second straight national championship as the anchor of a defense that allowed 4.5 goals per game during the 2003 NCAA tournament. For her efforts, she was named the NCAA Tournament MVP.
