Broncos Earn NWCA Academic Honors
MANHEIM, Penn. - The Boise State wrestling team was named to the list of Division I All-Academic Top 30 Teams while redshirt sophomore Jake Swartz was named to the Individual All-Academic Team, The National Wrestling Coaches Association announced Tuesday.

The Broncos were 15th on the top 30 list, achieving a team grade-point average of 3.121 for the 2011-12 academic year.

Swartz was one of 87 individual selected to the Individual All-Academic Team. This is the Auburn, Wash., native's second selection to the team after being named last year as a freshman. This is Swartz's second academic honor of the spring, as he was named to the Pac-12 All-Academic Team in April.

On the mat, Swartz finished his 2011-12 campaign with a 21-6 record at 184 pounds and was one of four Broncos to advance to the NCAA Tournament.

For teams to be eligible for consideration, the team GPA is comprised of 12 student athletes, including the 10 wrestlers that were the entries in the NCAA tournament conference qualifier. If teams had less than 10 entries for their respective qualifier, they may fill those spots with wrestlers that competed in at least one varsity dual during the season.
