Former Arizona Wildcats weights specialist Alyssa Hasslen was nominated for NCAA Woman of the Year, the organization announced Thursday.

The top 30 honorees will be announced in early September. The winner of the award -- presented annually to graduating student-athletes who have excelled in academics, athletics and community service -- will be announced in October.

Hasslen was a three-time NCAA All-American and took third in the shot put at the 2013 USA championships. She graduated magna cum laude.

Stanford basketball player Chiney Ogwumike was the Pac-12’s other selection.

Five Wildcats have won the award in the last seven years: Brigetta Barrett (2013), Annie Chandler (2011), Justine Schluntz (2010), Lacey Nymeyer (2009) and Whitney Myers (2007).
