In recognition of his work both on and off the field, McCarthy has been named one of 10 finalists for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award. The award honors four areas of excellence - community, classroom, character and competition.
As a junior in first season as a Wildcat, McCarthy became the first UK third baseman to be named first-team All-SEC since 1972. He has continued his strong performance as Kentucky has transformed into one of the nation's top teams during his senior season. Off the field, McCarthy has a 3.4 GPA as a psychology major while volunteering his time to causes like the Bluegrass Miracle League and God's Pantry.
McCarthy, along with nine others, was selected as a finalist from a list of 30 candidates announced during the preseason by a media committee. Now, the winner will be decided by Division I coaches and media members, as well as an online vote by fans. Fans can vote once a day until June 11 with their tally counting as one-third of the final tally. The winner will be announced during the College World Series in Omaha, Neb.
With the help of the Big Blue Nation, McCarthy has already risen four spots in the voting since Thursday. He still has work to do, so make sure to vote early and often.
