Four Candidates for Senior CLASS Award

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Four Pac-12 women have been selected as candidates for the 2011 Lowe's Senior CLASS Award for collegiate soccer, the award's staff announced Wednesday.

Oregon State goalkeeper Colleen Boyd, Stanford midfielder Teresa Noyola, UCLA forward Sydney Leroux and Washington midfielder Kate Deines are four of 30 student-athletes on the list for women's soccer. The four Conference representatives are also on the MAC Hermann Trophy watch list for the highest individual award in collegiate soccer.

To be eligible for candidacy, the student-athlete must be a senior and display excellence in four areas: community, classroom, character and competition. The CLASS award, standing for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, encourages student-athletes to use their platform in sports to positively impact their communities.

The list of 30 candidates will be narrowed down to 10 finalists at midseason. The finalists will have their names put on an official ballot and voted on nationally by media, coaches and fans.

Lowe's will announce the women's soccer Senior CLASS Award winner during the 2011 NCAA Women's College Cup championships, December 2 and 4.

The complete list of women's soccer candidates can be found here.
