Air Force’s Lamoureux wins 2010-2011 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award

Air force forward Jacques Lamoureux has been selected as the 2010-2011 winner of the Lowe’s Senior CLASS award in men’s ice hockey.

The winner, as voted by a committee of Division I coaches, media, and fans, is given annually to a senior with “notable achievements in four areas of excellence — community, classroom, character and competition.”

The award was presented Thursday in St. Paul, Minn., site of the 2011 Frozen Four.

“This is truly an honor and humbling to accept this award on behalf of my teammates and the Air Force Academy,” said Lamoureux. “We have had a lot of worthy candidates the last few years, and for someone to win this award from the Academy is a tremendous honor.”

Lamoureux maintains a 3.76 grade point average and volunteers at schools in the Colorado Springs area.

The Grand Forks, N.D. native, had 144 career points, including 142 in three seasons at Air Force. He was a Hobey Baker finalist in 2009, as well as a finalist for the Hockey Humanitarian award. Air Force won two Atlantic Hockey championships during his tenure.

“Jacques Lamoureux stands for everything the Lowe’s Senior CLASS award represents,” said Air Force coach Frank Serratore. “He is an outstanding student, a tremendous leader and a highly decorated player. I am both proud and happy for Jacques, as he is a very deserving and worthy recipient.”
