Mountaineers Claim Academic National Championship

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Western State Colorado University wrestling made history on Thursday. The Mountaineers earned the program's first Division II Wrestling Academic Team Championship, with the highest team grade­point average ever recorded in the awards' 23 year history. As a team, Western earned a 3.530 GPA and placed nine individuals on National Wrestling Coaches Association Division II All­Academic Wrestling teams. While it was the first time Western finished first in the team rankings, the Mountaineers finished in the top six for the fourth consecutive season. The NWCA Academic Team NationalChampionship is calculated by averaging the cumulative GPA of 10 wrestlers from each team of which eight of those wrestlers must have competed in their team's regional championship tournament. The NWCA announced the 2015­2016 Division II All­Academic Wrestling Team selections Thursday night before the national championships. One Mountaineer made the first team, five made the second team and three honorable mention selections. Corbin Bennetts (Gr., Buena Vista, Colorado) earned his third first team honor with a 3.96 GPA. Bennetts also earned second team honors during the 2012­13 season. Also earning his fourth appearance on an NWCA All­Academic team was Austin Harris (Sr., Windsor, Colorado). Harris was named to the second team for a third time in his career with a 3.03 GPA. Harris was also named to the honorable mention team during the 2013­14 season. Also making the second team was Tyler Adams (Sr., Rancho Santa Margarita, California) with a 3.73 GPA. Adams is a three­time NWCA All­Academic selection. Travis Bradford (So., Houston, Texas) also made the second team with a 3.87 GPA. Bradford earned honorable mention last season. Zane Rich (So., Syracuse, Utah) earned his second, second team honor with a 3.46 GPA and Brandon Supernaw (RFr., Colorado Springs, Colorado) made his first appearance with a second team honor and 3.50 GPA. Western's honorable mention selections were Ladd Bunker (RFr., Erie, Colorado), Ryan Pellow (So., Colorado Springs, Colorado) and Ian Steen (So., Graham, Washington). Bunker had a 3.50 GPA, Pellow recorded a 3.49 GPA and Steen had a 3.21 GPA. In order for a student­athlete to be nominated to the Division II All­Academic Team, he needed to have a minimum 3.00 cumulative GPA on a 4.00 scale. He must also be in at least his second full year at his current school, be a varsity member of his team or a key reserve, demonstrate a degree ofskill and have a minimum of two letters of recommendation.
