Jordan Hasay, now close to finishing up her senior season for Oregon’s vaulted women’s tracka nd field program, has added yet another award/accomplishment to her already impressive arsenal. Hasay and Arizona State men’s track and field athlete Nick Happe have recently been named the Pac-12 Women’s and Men’s Track and Field Scholar-Athletes of the Year.
A recognition given out to two individuals in every sport–one man and one woman–the award honors collegiate student-athletes that excel on the field and in the classroom.
The award is just her latest accomplishment at the University of Oregon, as the senior from Arroyo Grande, California has been selected as a 17-time All-American while taking home four Pac-12 titles and two NCAA titles. Her accomplishments on the track this year include setting the Pac-12 10,000 meter record with a time of 32:06.64.
Currently boasting a 3.87 GPA in business administration, Hasay is a two-time Academic All-American while being recognized as the 2011 USTFCCCA Academic All-American of the Year. She was also recognized as the cross country Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
Happe also won the honor for his efforts during the cross country season while forwarding his career this spring. He has a 4.08 GPA in accountancy and also minors in psychology at Arizona State and has been on the USTFCCCA All-Academic team the past two years.
To be eligible for the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year award, a student-athlete must be a senior who is currently pursuing a degree with a minimum, cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above. They also have to have participated in at least 50 percent of the contests during the season while being at their university for at least one year.
