NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Notre Dame men's lacrosse senior attackman Mikey Wynne has been named as a men's lacrosse candidate for the 2018 Senior CLASS Award. Wynne is one of 20 men's lacrosse student-athletes who have been selected as a candidate.
To be eligible for the Senior CLASS 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.
Over his four years at Notre Dame, Wynne has been a standout both on and off the field for the Irish. The Sykesville, Maryland, native earned earned 2017 Inside Lacrosse All-America Honorable Mention status.
