Broncos Earn League Academic Awards

May 27, 2005

SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Several Santa Clara University student-athletes were honored as members of 2005 West Coast Conference Spring All-Academic teams, which honor some of the league's finest examples of the consummate scholar-athlete, the league office announced today.

At the completion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each of the participating sponsored sports. To be considered, a student-athlete must earn at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, while also being a significant contributor to his or her team.

"These honorees represent the commitment of WCC student-athletes to both academic and athletic excellence," said WCC Commissioner Michael Gilleran. "Every year, it's a difficult process to narrow the long list of qualified nominees from each institution. All of those nominated should be proud of their achievements."
