From Press Release
Three Philly athletes are among the 20 elite NCAA® men’s lacrosse student-athletes who excel both on and off the field and were selected as candidates today for the 2021 Senior CLASS Award®.
Tht three include Lehigh’s Conor Gaffney (Lenape) and Teddy Leggett and Ohio State’s Ryan Terefenko (Wilson).
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 20 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 in conjunction with the 2021 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse National Championship in May.
