Six Bears named Great West All-Academic
NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- The Northern Colorado baseball team had six student-athletes honored for their efforts in the classroom by the Great West Conference.
"Collegiate athletes face a big challenge to find the balance between athletics and academics," said GWC Commissioner Ed Grom. "The Great West has a high percentage of student-athletes who have found that balance, and as our competitiveness against Division I institutions has increased, so has the commitment to academics. I congratulate all our academic all-conference honorees as they each have displayed the focus and commitment it takes to be successful."
In all, 228 Great West Conference athletes were named to the team based on a minimum cumulative 3.2 grade point average. The athletes also must have participated in at least 50 percent of their respective team's contests.
