South Dakota State ranks No. 13 among the NWCA All-Academic Teams
The National Wrestling Coaches Association announced its Division I All-Academic Teams and Individuals for the 2012-13 wrestling season. The South Dakota State wrestling team ranked No. 13 among the NWCA All-Academic Teams.
Team grade point average is determined using a system that includes 12 student-athletes from each program, with a total of 10 from the wrestlers that were entries into their respective conference qualifiers for the NCAA Tournament. Teams with less than 10 entries were allowed to fill those spots with wrestlers that competed in at least one varsity dual during the season.
The Jacks ranked No. 13 with a team GPA of 3.116. SDSU was one of four Western Wrestling Conference schools in the top 30 and sported the second-highest ranking.
