Pacific Lutheran University is proud to announce that senior softball pitcher Stacey Hagensen has been awarded a prestigious NCAA Post Graduate Scholarship. This scholarship entitles Hagensen to a $7,500 grant to apply toward a university or professional school of choice upon graduation from PLU.
Stacey's work in and out of the classroom has demonstrated her as a worthy recipient of this award.
Hagensen, a mathematics and economics double major from Bellevue, Wash., finished a remarkable senior year with a 3.91 grade point average as well as by leading the PLU softball team to a National Championship title. She has received several honors, including First Team Academic All-American, the Honda Sports Award Division III Player of the Year naming her the top Division III female athlete, and the NWC Woman of the Year.
Hagensen becomes the seventh Lute in school history to earn this award. Past PLU recipients of the NCAA Post Graduate Scholarship include Aaron Grossberg (2009-12, soccer, biology major), Ryan Dirks (2000-01, track and field, physical education major), Lisa Ossiander (2001-02, cross country, chemistry and German double-major), Jenne Heu-Weller (2003-04, volleyball, biology major), Carrie Larsen (2003-04, track and field, Spanish major), and Andrea Wells (2004-05, softball, physical education major).
