Baseball’s David Towarnicky was one of just three student-athletes of the 243 honored who holds a perfect 4.0 cumulative grade point average.
Among the Mountaineer teams, the men’s outdoor track and field honorees - Matt Boruff, Mark Maddox, Josh Houser and Blair Teal - averaged the highest grade point average with a 3.66. Three of the four were also all-SoCon performers at the Outdoor Championship meet, which the team won.
Around the league, women’s outdoor track and field teams placed the most student-athletes on the academic team with 62, while 37 baseball players and 36 men’s outdoor track and field athletes were honored.
ASU had already placed a total of 40 athletes on the fall and winter teams, bringing the total for the 2007-08 academic year to 68.
