Hopson was among the finalists when the 2009 NCAA Woman of the Year award was announced Oct. 18 in Indianapolis, Ind. A native of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Hopson earned five All-American awards in track and field throwing events at Fredonia State, including a national championship -- the first by a Blue Devil woman in any sport -- in the 2009 women's 20-pound weight throw at the NCAA Division III indoor championship meet last March.

She was an academic All-American, a Dean's list student, received academic recognition from the State University of New York Athletic Conference several times, and won the SUNY Chancellor's Award for her classwork. A graphic design major, she had pieces of her artwork displayed at the 2009 NCAA Convention in Washington, D.C., and was featured in the NCAA Champions magazine.
