A total of 548 student-athletes, including 43 from the Air Force Academy, were honored with the Mountain West Conference Scholar-Athlete award today.

To be eligible for selection, student-athletes must have completed at least two academic terms at the member institution, while maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better, and have participated in varsity competition in an NCAA-sponsored sport.
Seven Air Force athletes were honored for two sports, cross country and track.
