Clermont Chosen As Candidate For Senior CLASS Award

Feb. 28, 2017

Long Beach, Calif. - Christina Clermont was selected as one of 30 candidates for the Senior CLASS award, given annually to a senior that best represents notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition.

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.

Clermont will graduate in May in the pre-med track at Long Beach State with a degree in molecular biology, and enters her final semester with a cumulative GPA of 3.42. Averaging over 10 hours per week in labs in addition to her coursework and softball responsibilities, Clermont has also worked as a research assistant for two years in the Reproductive Research Laboratory on the CSULB campus.

The senior pitcher has also been an integral part of Long Beach State’s successes in her two seasons at the Beach. A two-time All-Region selection and a two-time first-team All-Big West honoree, Clermont was the co-Big West Pitcher of the Year as a sophomore, and is one of just six players in LBSU history to record 400 strikeouts, and Clermont has reached that mark in just over two seasons.

Clermont is one seven 49ers to throw a perfect game, and has twice matched the school’s seven-inning strikeout record with 15.

Additionally, Clermont has worked with an international service organization in the summer in Nicaragua, while also participating in Long Beach State’s team community activities, including Friends of Jaclyn and assisting with Precious Lamb preschool in Long Beach.

The candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists later in the season, and the winner will be announced during the 2017 Women’s College World Series.
