FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Notre Dame sophomore midfielder Tyler Brenneman was named the recipient of the Elite 89 award for the 2012 NCAA Division Men's Lacrosse Championship during Thursday evening's NCAA men's lacrosse banquet at Gillette Stadium.

The Elite 89, an award founded by the NCAA, recognizes the true essence of the student-athlete by honoring the individual who has reached the pinnacle of competition at the national championship level in his or her sport, while also achieving the highest academic standard among his or her peers. The Elite 89 is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the finals site for each of the NCAA's championships.

Eligible student-athletes are sophomores or above who have participated in their sport for at least two years with their school. They must be an active member of the team, traveling and a designated member of the squad size at the championship. All ties are broken by the number of credits completed.

Brenneman, an economics and political science major, currently carries a 3.782 GPA. The sophomore has played in 11 games this season, totaling three points on one goal and two assists. He is the first player in program history to receive the Elite 89 award.

No. 4 seed Notre Dame (13-2) will face top-seeded Loyola (16-1) on Saturday in the semifinals of the NCAA Championship. Face-off is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. (ET) at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. The game will be aired on ESPN2/ESPN3.
