Lapira, 2006 Hermann Trophy winner, is among '07 candidates
August 16th, 2007 9AM



Notre Dame forward Joseph Lapira, the 2006 winner of the Men's Hermann Trophy, is among the 29 players who are included in the 2007 Men's Hermann Trophy watch list released by the NSCAA.

Lapira, a senior forward who played for Ireland's national team in the offseason, was part of last season's landmark sweep of the men's and women's awards by Notre Dame, joining Kerri Hanks, also a forward for the Fighting Irish.

Reigning NCAA Division I national champion UC Santa Barbara -- Andy Iro and Eric Avila -- and Creighton -- Matt Allen and Byron Dacy -- were the only two schools to have multiple players on the watch list.

In November, the list will be narrowed to 15 semifinalists. Three finalists will be named in early December in conjunction with the NCAA Division I College Cup and will be invited to the Missouri Athletic Club on Jan. 11, 2008.
