LAS VEGAS ( - UNLV had a total of 40 student-athletes named to the Fall 2016 Academic All-Mountain West Team, the league announced. The Rebels have boasted at least 34 representatives on the fall list for 11 consecutive years.

The women's soccer team led the way with 15 honorees, a total that ties the 2002 and 2012 editions for the program's best output. The football and volleyball squads added 11 and 10, respectively, while cross country's four representatives rounded out the quartet of sports that participate in the MW and are sponsored by UNLV in the fall academic period.

To be eligible for selection to the Academic All-MW Team, student-athletes must have completed at least one academic term at the school, while maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better, and be a starter or significant contributor on their team. Overall, a league-record 614 student-athletes were named to the Fall 2016 Academic All-MW Team.

In addition, the UNLV men's soccer team had five student-athletes -- Enrique Adame, Cody Massey, Kieran Mills, Adam Musovski and Oscar Velazquez -- named to the 2016 Academic All-WAC Team in January.
