COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M defender Meghan Streight was selected as a candidate for the Senior CLASS Award for soccer, it was announced on Tuesday.

The McKinney, Texas-native was one of 30 women's soccer student-athletes chosen as a hopeful for the prestigious award. Streight qualified based on her dedication and achievement in four areas: Classroom, Character, Community and Competition.

Streight excels in the classroom with a 3.69 GPA in Allied Health. Her dedication with schoolwork over the past four years has paid off as she earned one of 13 spots on the NSCAA Scholar All-America First Team last season as well as being selected NSCAA Scholar All-South Region.

For the 2013-14 school year, Streight earned Texas A&M’s “President’s Award”, the highest award that is presented to a student-athlete at Texas A&M by the Athletics Department. The individual receiving the award is someone who displays extraordinary talents in the areas of athletics, scholarship, leadership and service.

In the community, Streight helps coordinate and lead the team’s service activities and soccer has won the Aggie Cup all three years under Streight’s guidance. The Aggie Cup is a competition within Texas A&M Athletics where teams earn points for service projects and other team unity activities.

On the field, Streight is one of 35 players on the MAC Hermann Trophy watch list this season. She was an NSCAA All-South Region First Team selection each of the last two seasons and as a sophomore she garnered NSCAA/Continental Tire All-America Third Team recognition. Streight was tabbed All-SEC First Team in 2012 and 2013. She has started all 78 of her contests since arriving in College Station, logging 27 points on nine goals and nine assists.

This season, Streight has started all four matches as the Aggies are off to a 4-0-0 start for the fifth time in school history and the first time since 2003.

Texas A&M's Emily Peterson won the award in 2009. In 2010, Rachel Shipley was one of the 10 finalists for the award, earning Senior CLASS First Team recognition.

From the list of 30 candidates, a national media committee will select 10 finalists for the 2014 Senior CLASS Award in early October. Those 10 names will then be placed on the official ballot for a nationwide vote. Fan balloting will be coupled with votes from coaches and media to determine the recipient of the award. The winner will be announced during the 2014 NCAA Division I Women's College Cup in December.
