Nearly 70 NM State fall and winter student-athletes secure academic All-WAC laurels

Student-athletes from seven NM State squads honored by league


The Western Athletic Conference (WAC) released its list of Academic All-WAC Honorees for the fall and winter of 2021-22 and on it were 69 student-athletes from seven of NM State's athletic teams.

To be eligible for the honor, a student-athlete must have completed at least one academic year, have at least a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average and have participated in at least 50 percent of the team's contests. In all, a total of 1,534 student-athletes from 12 sports in the league secured Academic All-WAC laurels.

The Aggies' women's swimming & diving program featured the highest number of Academic All-WAC honorees (21), followed closely by women's indoor track & field (17). Women's soccer (11) also each boasted double-digit student-athlete totals on the list while volleyball (eight) narrowly missed out on 10+ student-athletes.

Women's basketball (six), men's cross country (three) and women's cross country (three) each placed multiple student-athletes on the WAC's list as well.
