Senior CLASS Award
Husky libero Cassie Strickland earned one of the most prestigious honors in college sports, the Senior CLASS Award in NCAA Division I women’s volleyball. The awards — chosen by nationwide votes of coaches, media and fans in each sport — are presented annually to the most outstanding senior student-athletes in 10 different Division I sports. Cassie is the first Husky to win the honor in any sport. The awards are presented to seniors who exhibit excellence in the classroom, community, character and competition.
Fun fact! Fueling success at the Fuel Bar
Our student-athletes go through 600 bananas, 1,500 Greek yogurts and 1,250 chocolate milks a week and 15,000 protein shakes a year. The average football player eats 4,000 to 5,000 calories a day.
