by UCSD

SAN RAMON, Calif. — A total of 24 University of California San Diego student-athletes have been named to the 2017 California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Fall All-Academic Team, the conference announced on Thursday.

To qualify, individuals must be a sophomore or higher in athletic standing and maintain at least a 3.3 cumulative grade-point average while competing in a conference-sponsored sport.

The CCAA Fall All-Academic Team is comprised of eligible student-athletes who compete in men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer and women’s volleyball. UC San Diego is led by men’s cross country and women’s volleyball with six honorees apiece, while men’s soccer has five, women’s soccer has four and women’s cross country has three.

Overall, a total of 314 student-athletes from the conference's 13 member institutions received the accolade for their academic achievements.

“As proud as we are of the accomplishments that CCAA student-athletes achieve in their chosen sport, the real measure of success comes from how they perform in the classroom,” said CCAA interim commissioner Mitch Cox. "These student-athletes have shown once again that the CCAA and Division II excel in providing a balance between athletic achievement and academic success.”
