DENVER, Colo. -- The Western Athletic Conference (WAC) announced the 2019 Academic All-WAC selections for spring sports and freshmen and transfer from the 2018-19 fall and winters sports on Tuesday. A total of 76 Kansas City Athletics' student-athletes were honored with the award -- 41 athletes in spring sports and 35 freshmen and transfers -- for their efforts both on the court and in the classroom.

Out of all the sports included in this list, the Kansas City Women's Outdoor Track & Field team has the most recipients with 10. In second is the women's indoor track and field program with nine.

“I am proud of how committed Kansas City student-athletes are to achieving the highest standards of success, both on the field and in the classroom,” commented Director of Athletics Dr. Brandon Martin. “As we all strive for comprehensive excellence, we congratulate all of the 76 honorees that maintained at least a 3.2 GPA."

In closing out the 2018-19 academic year, there were a total of 120 Roo athletes honored on the All-WAC Academic teams (37 fall, seven winter, 41 spring, 35 freshmen / transfers).

To be eligible for an Academic All-WAC selection, student athletes must have been enrolled full-time at the school for one year, compete in at least half of the team’s games and hold a cumulative 3.2 GPA or better.
