Denver, Colo.-----For the second year in a row, 38 San Jose State University student-athletes from the fall sports teams of cross country, football, women's soccer and volleyball earned Academic All-Western Athletic Conference (WAC) recognition.

Among San Jose State's Academic All-WAC honorees, football and women's soccer each had 11 honorees. There were nine in women's cross country, six in volleyball and one in men's cross country.
