K-State midfielder Brookelynn Entz (8) dribbles during the team’s home match versus Kansas at Buser Family Park on March 6. Entz notched two goals in the team’s 3-3 road draw versus Missouri on Sunday.

Kansas State midfielder Brookelynn Entz was named a finalist this week for women’s soccer’s 2020-21 Senior CLASS award.

Entz joined nine other student athletes on the final list of candidates for the award, which honors athletes who achieve excellence on and off the pitch. The CLASS acronym stands for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School.

Entz owns or is tied for 28 career or single-season records at Kansas State. She added three more when she set program records for goals in a season (seven) goals in a Big-12 season (five) and points in a season (15).

The Big 12 honored Entz’s performance with an All-Big 12 first-team selection. Kansas City National Women’s Soccer League, the city’s expansion franchise, recognized Entz’s accomplishments by drafting her in the fourth round of the NWSL draft in January.

The CLASS award also recognizes Entz’s 4.0 grade average. A psychology major, Entz is a three-time Academic All-Big 12 honoree. The conference’s coaches named her the co-Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2020.

Entz and the Wildcats play their final home match at 12 p.m. Saturday against Iowa State. The match will be broadcast on Big 12 Now on ESPN+.
