COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Forty-seven Colorado State student-athletes have earned Mountain West Scholar-Athlete awards for their work in the classroom during the 2007-08 academic year. The Mountain West Conference made the announcement Monday.
The 47 student-athletes honored by the MWC represent 15 of Colorado State's 16 varsity athletics programs. Five individuals were recognized twice, for their efforts as part of the CSU cross country and indoor/outdoor track & field programs: Jake Keyser, Allison Gohl, Kristen Hemphill, April Thomas and Melissa Thomas. April Thomas, the 2007 MWC cross country individual champion, was also one of 20 individuals throughout the conference to make the list with a 4.00 GPA.
The MWC Scholar-Athlete award is the highest academic honor bestowed by the conference. To be eligible for selection, student-athletes must have completed at least two academic terms at the member institution, while maintaining a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or better, and have participated in varsity competition in an NCAA-sponsored sport.
