Volleyball setter Lauren Plum is one of 30 candidates this fall in women’s volleyball for the Senior CLASS Award. The senior from Poway, Calif., has started just about every match for the Ducks since her freshman year and defines the Oregon attack by leading the team in assists just about every time the Ducks take the hardwood.

Plum was a first-team All-American selection in 2012, and an honorable mention in 2011. As a junior in 2012, she led the country in assists per set by a full assist — 13.36 over the second-place 12.36.

The award is open to senior student athletes in the country who have “achievements” in the categories of community, classroom, character and competition. CLASS stands for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School.

Plum will be an important leader on the volleyball team as one of three seniors, but more importantly will be a co-director for O Heroes.

Midway through the season, the list of 30 will narrow to 10 and those 10 will be voted on.
