The Tewaaraton, considered the Heisman of lacrosse, is an annual award given to the top male and female college lacrosse player in the country.

Kavanagh was a finalist alongside teammate and Notre Dame goalie Liam Entenmann.

Kavanagh finished the 2024 season as the ACC Offensive Player of the year, sixth overall PLL draft pick to the Boston Cannons, and two-time national champion. He was also the first player in program history to be named a Tewaaraton finalist three times in his career.

Becoming the only player in program history to reach 300 points, Kavanagh set the all- time career Notre Dame points record with 301, and also set the record for assists with 184.
