BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Oct. 8, 2021) - Thayer Hall of Florida and Alli Stumler of Kentucky are among the 30 NCAA® women's volleyball student-athletes selected as candidates for the 2021 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.
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 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 2021 NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball Championship in December.
