Plain and Klingler Named Candidates for 2022 Senior Class Award
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Seniors Gabbie Plain and Baylee Klingler were named candidates for the 2022 Senior Class Award.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior or graduate student and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition.
The 30 candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists later in the season, 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 2022 Women's College World Series.
The reigning Pac-12 Pitcher of the year, Gabbie Plain continues to cement her legay in the Husky record books this season. Against UNLV Saturday, she struck out a season-high 13 batters. This season, she ranks second with eight wins, third with 76 strikeouts in the Pac-12. The Australian native is tied for first in the nation with six shutouts.
Baylee Klingler currently leads the Pac-12 in home runs (9), which ranks fifth in the nation. Her 32 RBI are the most by an individual in the NCAA. The Texas native hit her third grand slam of the season against New Mexico State Friday. She is hitting .433 on the year with nine home runs, two triples, five doubles and 32 RBI.
