Lowe's Senior CLASS Award
STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford senior outfielder Alissa Haber has been selected as one of the top-30 candidates for the 2010 Lowe's Senior CLASS Award. Haber is one of three representatives from the Pac-10 Conference.
Haber enters her final season on The Farm with a .395 career batting average, a clip which stands only behind that of two-time Olympian Jessica Mendoza in the Cardinal record books. After leading Stanford in nearly every offensive category the last three years, Haber is a three-time All-American. She joins Mendoza as the only players in school history to enter their senior year as a three-time All-American.
The Lowe's Senior CLASS Award is given to student-athletes who excel both on and off the field. 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 - classroom, character, community and competition. An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Lowe's 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.
Lowe's, an official Corporate Partner of the NCAA, will announce the Senior CLASS Award winner at the NCAA Women's College World Series in June. The 30 candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists midway through the regular 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 finalist who best exemplifies excellence in the four Cs of classroom, character, community and competition.
The Cardinal opens the 2010 season at the Paradise Softball Classic in Honolulu, Hawai'i. Stanford will face Texas A&M Corpus Christ, Thursday, Feb. 11 at 4 p.m. HT.
