Oregon's Jordan Hasey was named Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year by the Pac-12 Conference on Monday.

In a media release issued on Monday, the Pac-12 Conference indicated Jordan Hasay of Arroyo Grande, Calif., is a 17-time All-American, a four-time Pac-12 Champion and two-time NCAA Champion. She set the Pac-12 10,000-meter record (32:06.64) earlier this season. Hasay is a two-time Academic All-American and was named the 2011 USTFCCCA Academic All-American of the Year. She was a Bowerman Award semifinalist in 2011, as well. Addtionally, she earned All-American status in cross country three times and placed in the top three at the NCAA cross country championships the last three years.

A business administration major with a 3.87 GPA, Hasay was the first sophomore to be named National Women's Track & Field/Cross Country Academic All-American of the Year by the USTFCCCA in 2010. Hasay was also the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year in cross country.
