2.  Jostens Trophy Finalists

Rotary Club of Salem Announces Finalists for 2022 Jostens Trophy

The Jostens Trophy honors - one for men's basketball and one for women's basketball - are national awards created by the Rotary Club of Salem and sponsored by Jostens, Inc., to recognize the most outstanding men's and women's Division III basketball players of the year.

The awards focus on three major criteria: basketball ability, academic prowess, and service to one's surrounding communities. The Jostens Trophy models the Rotary International motto of "Service Above Self" by recognizing those who truly fit the ideal of a well-rounded Division III student-athlete. The 2022 season marks the 24th time the Jostens Trophy honors will be awarded.

The selection committee features 27 current and former athletic administrators and head coaches, past Jostens Trophy recipients, and select members of the Division III media. The committee will announce the two winners on Thursday, March 24.
