LOGAN, Utah - Fifteen Utah State student-athletes were on the list of winter academic all-Western Athletic Conference selections that were announced by the league office. Among the honorees were seven USU women's basketball players, six Aggie gymnasts and two men's basketball players.
Kohler, a senior from La Selva Beach, Calif., competed on the beam and floor this past season after winning the WGC floor title last year. Mandy, a junior from Fargo, N.D., tied for ninth on the vault at this year's league championship. Parenti, a junior from Glendora, Calif. qualified for the NCAA Regionals as an individual and finished 14th in the all-around.
Women's basketball selections included three-time choices Jessica Freeman and Brittany Tressler. Freeman, a senior from St. George, Utah finished her career as USU's all-time blocked shots leader. Tressler, a junior from Orem, Utah, averaged 3.7 points per game this past season.
Chris Huber and Cass Matheus earned honors from the men's basketball team. Matheus, a senior from Sao Paulo, Brazil, averaged 9.1 points and 6.0 rebounds while starting all 32 games.
