HIGH POINT, N.C. – Dan Lomas of the High Point University men’s lacrosse team has been selected as one of the 20 candidates nationally for the Senior CLASS Award.
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 award is given out annually in 10 NCAA sports.
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 list of 20 candidates for men’s lacrosse will be narrowed to 10 finalists in April, 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 exemplify excellence in the four Cs of community, classroom, character and competition.
The Senior CLASS Award winner will be announced during the 2016 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse National Championship in May.
Lomas is the second HPU player to be nominated for the award after Austin Geisler garnered the recognition last season.
