Volleyball Has Two Seniors Selected as Candidates for the 2020-21 Senior CLASS Award
SALT LAKE CITY – Thirty NCAA® women's volleyball student-athletes who excel both on and off the court were selected today as candidates for the 2020-21 Senior CLASS Award®.
Utah volleyball has two of the 30 on the list in Dani Drews and Kenzie Koerber. University of Utah is one of three schools to have multiple student-athletes on the list.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition. The complete list of candidates follows this release.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
The 30 candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists later this month, and those 10 names will be placed on the official ballot. Ballots will be distributed through a nationwide voting system to media, coaches and fans, who will select one candidate who best exemplifies excellence in the four Cs of community, classroom, character and competition.
The Senior CLASS Award winner will be announced during the 2020-21 NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball Championship in April.
