WAVERLY (KWWL) -- Wartburg sprinter Hannah Baker has been nominated by the Iowa Conference for the NCAA's Woman of the Year Award.

Baker anchored the Knight's 1,600 meter relay team to a national title in the spring.  It was her 5th career national title as a member of the Wartburg track and field team.  During that time, she also set 3 Iowa Conference records.

Baker, a biology major, recently graduated with a 3.98 GPA, and is a three-time CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America selection.

The top 10 honorees and the nine finalists from Divisions I, II and III will be honored and the 2009 NCAA Woman of the Year winner announced at a dinner in Indianapolis on October 17, 2010.
