Georgia Tech guard Lotta-Maj Lahtinen was honored Tuesday as one of 30 women’s basketball players who are candidates for the Senior CLASS Award.

The award goes to Division I seniors in 10 different sports who demonstrate excellence in competition, community service, academics and character. Lahtinen was named the ACC’s most improved player in the 2020-21 season, is a two-time member of the All-ACC women’s basketball academic team and has taken part in a number community service activities, such as volunteering with teammates with Habitat for Humanity and reading to children at local schools.

Ten finalists for the award will be announced in February and the winner will be named at the women’s Final Four.
