Hasay, Hollander Earn Cross Country All-America Honors

Cal Poly freshman Laura Hollander and Oregon senior Jordan Hasay were both named All-Americans Monday by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

Hollander finished ninth at the NCAA Division I Cross Country Championships on Saturday. The top 40 individuals from both the men's and women's races earned the All-America honor. Hollander crossed the finish line in 19:45.

Hollander adds the All-America honor to an impressive list of accolades that already includes Big West Women's Athlete of the Year and Big West Women's Freshman of the Year. Hollander won four individual titles during her freshman season.

Hasay finished third overall at the NCAA Championships in 19:28.6 and helped the Oregon women win their first national team title since 1987.

Hasay is the first woman in program history to win four cross country All-America awards. Hasay now owns a school-record 15 All-America honors.

Also on Monday, Hasay was named to the Pac-12 Conference's All-Academic First Team. She owns a 3.98 grade point average in business administration.
