(Ames) The Iowa State University Athletic's Office issued a press release today regarding Hamlin native and Exira graduate Hallie Christofferson...
Iowa State senior forward Hallie Christofferson has been named one of 10 finalists for the Senior CLASS Award. 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.
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 finalists were chosen from the original list of 30 by a media committee. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to help select the winner. Fans are encouraged to vote on the Senior CLASS Award website through March 24. Fan votes will be combined with media and Division I head coaches’ votes to determine the winner.
Iowa State is the only school to have a finalist in each of the last two seasons, as Chelsea Poppens represented the Cyclones as a finalist last season.
The women’s winner will be announced during the NCAA Women’s Final Four.
