Mission Prep graduate Jordan Hasay was named the Pac-12 Conference Women's Cross Country Scholar-Athlete of the Year on Monday.
The award, which is presented in each of the 22 sports the Conference sponsors, was established to honor collegiate student-athletes that are standouts both academically and in their sports discipline. The student must be a senior and have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and participate in at least 50 percent of the scheduled contests in the sport. The winner was selected by a Pac-12 committee.
Hasay is a three-time cross country All-American and was the NCAA individual runner-up last year, placing second by just .4 seconds. She was the Pac-10 individual champion in 2010 and also won the NCAA West Regional title the last two years.
A business administration major with a 3.98 GPA, Hasay became the first sophomore to be named National Women's Track & Field/Cross Country Academic All-American of the Year in 2010. She is a two-time first team cross country Academic All-American and was named first team academic all-conference twice.
Already the most decorated runner in school history with 14 All-American honors in track and cross country combined, Hasay finished second at the Pac-12 Conference Championships on Saturday. She finished second by four seconds, despite competing ill and throwing up during the race. Hasay led the Oregon women to the overall Conference title, the team's first since 1995.
