Kansas University senior closer Jordan Piché was named one of 30 candidates for the Senior CLASS Award in collegiate baseball.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Div. I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence — community, classroom, character and competition. Piché is just the second Jayhawk to be considered for this award during the 2013-14 school year; volleyball’s All-American Caroline Jarmoc was named a finalist for the award in the fall.
“Jordan represents our entire program on the field, in the classroom, and in our community in a first-class manner,” KU coach Ritch Price said. “He is one of the best kids I’ve coached in my 37-year career.”
