Jordan Hasay

Arroyo Grande native and former Mission Prep track star Jordan Hasay made waves Sunday at the Boston Marathon.

In the first marathon of her career, Hasay finished in third place among female runners with a time of 2:23:00. Hasay’s time was the fastest marathon debut by an American woman. It was also the fourth fastest marathon an American woman has ever run.

On Sunday, Hasay only trailed Edna Kiplagat, of Kenya, and Rose Chelimo, of Bahrain. Kiplagat won the women’s race with a time of 2:21:52.

Prior to becoming a professional runner, Hasay was the valedictorian of the 2009 Mission Prep graduating class. She then attended the University of Oregon where she competed as a runner and graduated with a business administration degree.

I’m pretty sure she got 18th place.


That was 18 in time including men – she was 3rd in the women – mere seconds behind the 2nd place woman. Pretty good in my book…

The race was on Monday. A brilliant performance for Jordan in light the circumstances.

Thanks for covering it.

This was an incredible accomplishment by a massively talented, focused, nice, smart, wonderful person.
