Thread: 5 2009 NCAA Champs Make NWCA All-Academic Team

    Default 5 2009 NCAA Champs Make NWCA All-Academic Team

    Great to see that five of the ten
    individual champs crowned at the
    2009 NCAA Division I championships
    earned a place on this year's
    NWCA Individual All-Academic Team!

    (One of the champ's GPA is so high,
    it's among the five highest in college wrestling!)

    See who made the grade:

    Impressive, especially Steve Luke's marks in biology. I guess some guys are just total workaholics.

    For those of you interested in the official release off of the NWCA site: http://www.nwcaonline.com/nwcawebsit...emic_Team.aspx
    Champions are made while no one is watching.

    It must be a Michigan thing. Ryan Bertin had something like a 3.8 GPA when he graduated from Michigan with a similar major a few years ago.

    I can just hear Koll telling recruits -- there's only one school that finished in the top 10 in both the NCAA tourney and in team GPA ...

    Yeah, 4th place in academics in the Ivy league isn't too bad.
    What happened to Penn? Not on the list?

    Gotta like the Big Ten with 4 out of the 5 champs. Is there another sport where you can say half of the National Champions were also Academic All-Americans? I am sure there are but if you say golf I would tell you there is only one champion, in college you have 10. That's something some of the AD's need to keep in mind.

    Three guys from ODU make the team ... and not in fluff majors either, three that the school is actually pretty solid in.

    Fourth tier no more! Actually, it's now third tier, but still doesn't get the respect it deserves as a solid school. It's gotten a lot better.
