COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A record number of 101 Colorado State student-athletes earned academic all-conference accolades for their work in the classroom during the spring season. The conference announced the spring 2014 Academic All-Mountain West team on Monday.

CSU's total ranks second in the Mountain West, and gives the Rams 148 selections throughout the 2013-14 academic year.
To be eligible, a student-athlete must have completed at least one academic term at Colorado State while maintaining a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or better, and be a starter or significant contributor on his/her team.
