Chambers is Senior CLASS All-American

By The Mercury

K-State senior Brittany Chambers garnered another national honor for her trophy case on Friday, as she was named to the Senior CLASS All-America second team in an announcement by the organization.

Chambers becomes the fifth player in school history to earn Senior CLASS Award All-American honors.

The 2013 Senior CLASS award winner was Delaware forward Elena Delle Donne.

Joining Delle Donne on the first team were Layshia Clarendon of California, Skylar Diggins of Notre Dame, Drey Mingo of Purdue and Chelsea Poppens of Iowa State.

Joining Chambers on the second team were Jacqui Kalin of Northern Iowa, Kevi Luper of Oral Roberts, Anna Martin of DePaul and Jaime Printy of Iowa.

The award, chosen by a nationwide vote of Division-I women’s basketball coaches, national basketball media and fans, is given annually to the most outstanding senior student-athlete in Division I women’s basketball.

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 — classroom, community, 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.

Chambers joins former Wildcats Nicole Ohlde (2004), Kendra Wecker (2005), Shalee Lehning (2009) and Ashley Sweat (2010) as Senior CLASS Award All-Americans.

Wecker captured the Senior CLASS Award in her season of eligibility.
