Grace Tumavicus Named 2nd Runner up for Defensive Player of the Year!

If you go back and watch the tape of Colorado College’s opening game against Carleton Eclipse, you can hear Grace’s name being called again and again for making blocks. Zenith would end up losing that game 15-7, but the margin would have been a lot larger without Grace chasing down deep puts from the Eclipse throwers. In person matchups, Tumavicus wasn’t just generating blocks, she was shutting down receivers and neutralizing some of the best cutters in the nation both downfield and near the disc. Zenith ended up breaking seed and finishing the tournament T-5, and while their offense was smooth and flowed well, they played a gritty, hard-nosed defense. That defense was led by Grace Tumavicus.
