Maya Hayes Nominated for Senior CLASS Award

While Penn State women’s soccer star Maya Hayes is having a fantastic season for the Nittany Lions, she may receive an honor for her work off of the pitch.

Hayes is one of ten women nominated for the 2013 Senior CLASS Award in women’s soccer. CLASS is an acronym for “Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School,” and honors student athletes for succeeding on and off the field of play.

According to its website, “…the Senior CLASS Award honors the attributes of NCAA Division I senior student-athletes in four areas: community, classroom, character and competition. The award program is designed exclusively for college seniors who are utilizing their complete athletic eligibility, remaining committed to their university and pursuing the many rewards a senior season can bring.”

Currently, Hayes is in second place with 12 percent of the vote, trailing Elizabeth Hoerner of Navy by 4.1 percentage points. Fan balloting, media members, and coaches are all part of the voting process, with each group making up one-third of the award’s selection committee. Fans can vote once every 24 hours on the Senior CLASS Award website.

Hayes has been a monster for the fifth ranked women’s soccer team, which boasts a 10-3-1 record and looks to win its 16th consecutive Big Ten title. The U.S. International is tied for sixth in America with 2.21 points per game and 13 total goals, and tied for ninth with .929 goals per game.
