Utah State student-athletes earn 229 Academic All-Mountain West honors

LOGAN, Utah – Utah State student-athletes earned a combined 229 academic all-Mountain West citations in the spring, as announced by the conference offices on Wednesday. The total represented the third-highest in the league as UNLV led the way with 243 and Colorado State followed with 235.

The Aggies had the most honored among the MW in men’s cross country (19), men’s track & field (46) and women’s track & field (50). Utah State’s women’s cross country and women’s tennis teams each finished second in the league with 19 and eight honorees, respectively, while softball finished third with 18 honorees. Utah State was also represented in men’s basketball (9), women’s basketball (10), men’s golf (7), women’s soccer (25), men’s tennis (6) and women’s volleyball (12).

The spring academic total is the highest in Utah State history, as sports that were typically awarded academic honors in the fall ended up playing abbreviated schedules in the spring. Those sports included women’s soccer, women’s volleyball and men’s and women’s cross country.

To be eligible for 2021 Spring Academic All-Conference honors, student-athletes must have completed at least one academic term at the member institution, while maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better. The athletic contribution/participation requirement has been omitted for this award this year due to the impact of COVID-19.

During the 2020-21 academic year, Utah State garnered a total of 283 academic all-conference awards.
