LAS VEGAS -
UNLV had a total of 39 student-athletes earn fall 2009 Academic All-Mountain West Conference honors, the league announced on Thursday. The Rebels have had 39 fall representatives for three consecutive years.
To be eligible for selection to the Academic All-MWC 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.
UNLV football led the way for the fall honorees with 17 student-athletes being recognized.
The women's soccer and women's cross country teams contributed 13 and six members, respectively. Both programs fell just shy of tying their previous highs by one apiece.
The volleyball program rounded out the four-team contingent for UNLV with three representatives.
