Fans can vote for Lindaman at the Senior CLASS Award website as many times as they like up until the Women’s College World Series in June
Fifth-year graduate senior Kendyl Lindaman was named as a top-10 finalist for the 2021 Senior CLASS Award Friday afternoon. Lindaman is the program’s 12th overall finalist for the award since 2009.
“This a tremendous accomplish for a tremendous student-athlete.” head coach Tim Walton said. “You’re not going to find a better student-athlete on the field and in the classroom.”
Lindaman, the 2020 CoSIDA Academic All-American of the Year and three-time NFCA All-American, graduated in the spring of 2020 with her bachelor’s degree in Educational Sciences and is currently pursuing her master’s in Sport Management.
To be eligible for the award, student-athletes must be classified as NCAA Division I seniors 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 athletic platforms to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
The finalists were chosen by a selection committee from the list of 30 candidates announced earlier this season. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to help select the winner, and fans are encouraged to submit votes online at the Senior CLASS Award website through May 24. Fan votes will be combined with those of the media and Division I head coaches to determine the winner.
The Senior CLASS Award recipient for softball will be announced prior to the 2021 NCAA Women’s College World Series® in June.
