The sophomore computer science major posted a 4.00 GPA.
SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- Sophomore Ben Davis has been named to the 2016 WCC Men's Cross Country All-Academic Team, while Koby Pederson, Jack Polerecky, Marisa Carino, Kayla de Bondt and Maddi Vorgitch earned all-academic honorable mention, as announced by the conference Thursday.
Davis, the lone member of the men's all-academic team to post a 4.00 GPA, placed within the top 30 in three of his four races during the regular season. A computer science major, Davis makes his first appearance to the all-academic team.
Fellow sophomore Koby Pederson and junior Jack Polerecky were named all-academic honorable mention, while Marisa Carino, Kayla de Bondt and Maddi Vorgitch earned honorable mention on the women's all-academic team.
At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each WCC-sponsored sport. To be considered, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, be in their second season of competition and also being a significant contributor to his/her team.
