March 12, 2010

MADISON, Wis. – A record total of 119 student-athletes, representing all ten Western Collegiate Hockey Association-member institutions, have earned distinction as members of the men’s 2009-10 All-WCHA Academic Team as announced today, March 12, by the conference office. Sixty-three (63) of those 119 individuals are previous honorees.

The highest number of student-athletes earning men’s All-WCHA Academic Team honors in a single season prior to 2009-10 was 107 in 2008-09 and 93 in 2005-06.

To earn recognition as a member of the All-WCHA Academic Team, member team student-athletes must meet the following criteria: 1) have completed one year of residency at present institution, prior to the current academic year; and 2) have a grade point average of at least 3.00 (on a 4.00 scale) for the previous two semesters or three quarters, or may qualify if his overall GPA is at least 3.00 for all terms at his present institution.

Ten Alaska Anchorage Seawolves were among the record-breaking 114 student-athletes named to the men's All-WCHA Academic Team for the 2009-10 season, the conference announced Friday. Goaltender Jon Olthuis was one of them.
