PHILADELPHIA – University of Pennsylvania senior left-handed pitcher Ronnie Glenn is one of 10 NCAA student-athletes, who excel both on and off the diamond, to be selected as a finalist today for the 2015 Senior CLASS Award® in collegiate baseball. 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.
Fans can vote as often as once a day for their Senior CLASS Award choice. We encourage all members of the Penn baseball community to do their part and VOTE FOR RONNIE!
Finalists were chosen by national media from the list of 30 candidates announced in March. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to help select the winner. Fans are encouraged to vote on the Senior CLASS Award website through June 8. Fan votes will be combined with media and Division I head coaches’ votes to determine the winner. This year’s Senior CLASS Award winner will be announced during the 2015 College World Series® in June.
Glenn was named Honorable-mention All-Ivy a season ago, and he currently leads the Ivy League in complete games, with five, and is tied for second in the league in stirkeouts, with 48. He has a 4-3 record, with a 2.84 ERA in 50.2 innings pitched. Please click here to read his entire bio with his on-and off-field contributions to Penn baseball and the community.
