Lovejoy Named To Senior CLASS Award List
Lovejoy, a senior forward from Greensboro, N.C., was selected based on his abilities both on and off the soccer fields.
A two-time ACC Honor Roll and an All-ACC Academic Team selection, Lovejoy was limited to 11 games in 2012, but still managed to score five goals and hand out a pair of assists for 12 points.
He scored all three goals of a 3-0 win over College of Charleston in his first game of last season after missing the first 12 contests due to injury. Lovejoy also scored the game winner in the 2-0 victory at NC State last fall.
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 Senior CLASS Award winners will be announced during the 2013 NCAA Men's and Women's College Cup® championships in December.
The 30-candidate class will be narrowed to 10 finalists midway through the regular season, 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 the candidate who best exemplify excellence in the four Cs of community, classroom, character and competition.
