Montana Tops Big Sky Conference in Fall Academics

Our thanks to Joel Carlson in sports information at the University of Montana for this update. It is always a pleasure to celebrate the wonderful academic achievements of our student athletes. If Montana’s new athletics academic center, for which ground will be broken this summer, is the promise of academic success to come, what does it say about UM’s student-athletes already setting the standard in the Big Sky Conference today? Montana had a conference-high 58 selections on the Big Sky Conference Fall All-Academic teams. And it wasn’t even the overall number of selections that the Grizzlies’ five fall sports teams produced that was as impressive as the high marks across the squads. But a quick rundown shows that football team, with 20 selections, tied for the most in that sport, a feat matched by the Griz soccer (17) and men’s cross country (6) teams. The women’s cross country team garnered seven selections and the volleyball team had eight. Sounds to me like everyone’s recruiting the right kinds of kids. Congrats, Griz…we’re proud of you! DB
