LOGAN, Utah - The Western Athletic Conference announced its spring all-academic teams on Tuesday, along with its academic all-freshman/transfer teams, and Utah State had 108 student-athletes recognized as 47 earned all-academic team honors, while 61 more were named to the academic all-freshman/transfer team.
Utah State's 47 academic honorees from its spring sports were the most in the league as Fresno State and Idaho tied for second with 40, followed by New Mexico State (33), Louisiana Tech (31), Nevada (30), Boise State (27), Hawai'i (20), and San Jose State (18).
Utah State also had the most individuals honored in men's outdoor track and field (16) and women's outdoor track and field (15), while men's golf tied for top honors in that sport with three student-athletes honored.
Senior Erin Stratton, who competes in cross country, and both indoor and outdoor track, has now earned academic all-WAC honors nine times in her career, while senior cross country/track athlete Steve Strickland earned his eighth academic all-WAC honor. Of the 47 USU student-athletes to earn spring academic all-WAC honors, 45 are receiving the accolade for at least the second time.
To be eligible for the spring academic team, a student-athlete must have completed one academic year, have at least a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average and have participated in at least 50 percent of the team's contests.
During the 2009-10 academic year, Utah State had 194 student-athletes recognized by the league office for their academic achievements.
