PORTLAND, Ore. --- Portland Pilots senior Danielle Foxhoven has been named one of 10 finalists for the 2011 Lowe's 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 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.
Foxhoven, a native of Littleton, Colo., leads the Pilots and ranks fifth in the WCC with five goals this season. She ranks fourth all-time at UP with 54 career goals and sits behind only Christine Sinclair (110), Tiffeny Milbrett (103) and Shannon MacMillan (87) on the all-time chart. Foxhoven also ranks third in career shots on goal per game (1.68), is fifth in goals per game (0.70) and in total points (131), and is eighth in points per game (1.70) and game-winners (14).
A marketing & management major with a cumulative GPA of 3.42, Foxhoven was named an Academic First Team All-American as a sophomore. She earned Academic All-American Third Team honors as a junior last fall.
The Lowe's Senior CLASS finalists were chosen by a media committee from the list of 30 men's candidates and 30 women's candidates announced in August. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to determine the winner. Fans are encouraged to vote on either the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award website or the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award Facebook fan page through November 14. Fan votes will be combined with media and Division I head coaches' votes to determine the winner.
Lowe's, an official Corporate Partner of the NCAA, will announce the winner at the 2011 NCAA Women's College Cup Championships in Kennesaw, Ga., in early December.
