SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- With the recent conclusion of the 2012-13 academic year, the West Coast Conference recognized an impressive number of Saint Mary's student-athletes as part of the 12th annual WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll, which recognizes student-athletes that have balanced athletic success with academic excellence.

A total of 101 Gaels, more than one-third of the total student-athlete population at Saint Mary's, were included on the list, including 12 who earned gold honors for maintaining a cumulative grade point average between 3.75 and 4.0.  Saint Mary's had 21 student-athletes on the list to receive silver honors for having a GPA between 3.50-3.74 and 68 were recognized as maintaining between a 3.0-3.49.

Those listed as gold recipients included:  Samuel Bloore, men's tennis;  Tiffany Gill, rowing;  Kristina Graven, volleyball;  Lukas Isaacson, soccer;  Nathalie Lambrecht, rowing;  Beau Levesque, basketball;  Tuomas Manner, tennis;  Danica Mendivil, volleyball;  Carina Novell, cross country;  Katie Reininger, volleyball;  Anna Schroeder, volleyball;  and Katie Wahl, rowing.

For the second consecutive year, more than 1,000 WCC student-athletes were recognized for honors on the Commissioner's Honor Roll for possessing at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale.

Only grades earned at WCC institutions may be used in calculating the grade point average for this award. To be considered for this honor, student-athletes must meet the following requirements:

  1. Individuals must have earned a varsity letter in a sport which the conference determined a champion in the recently completed academic year.
  2. The cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 must be based on a 4.0 scale.
