Denver, Colo.-----Thirty-eight San Jose State University student-athletes from the fall sports of football, men's and women's cross country, volleyball and women's soccer earned Academic All-Western Athletic (WAC) honors for the 2010 season.
To qualify, a student-athlete must complete at least one academic year at the WAC school, maintain at least a 3.00 cumulative grade-point average and participate in at least 50 percent of the team's contests.
The honored student-athletes do not include team members who are first-time freshmen or transfers who are excellent students, but need to complete the 2011 spring semester for one complete academic year.
For the second year in a row, the Spartans had the most Academic All-WAC student-athletes in women's cross country with 13. Nine players from the WAC regular-season champion women's soccer team named Academic All-WAC.
Of the nine conference schools, San Jose State was fifth with 38 honorees. The other eight WAC members had a range of 23 to 44 Academic All-WAC honorees.
Thirty-five of the 39 student-athletes are repeat achievers of the conference's academic award.
Cross country runners Alan Shelton and Morgan Hancock, women's soccer players Kim Johnston and Lauren Ng-Pinkerton and volleyball's Courtney Zellmer earned their fourth Academic All-WAC award at San Jose State.
