Parker Hines, Connor Hedash, Dylan Hyder, Zen Ikehara and Anthony McHugh earned spots on the first team, while Conor O’Hara, Jerry McGinty and Anthony McLaughlin were added to the second team. The honors mark Hines’ and Hyder’s second time making the first-team in as many in the conference. Last season, four Falcons made the first team while two made the second.

The team features 21 student-athletes from conference member institutions Iowa State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and West Virginia, while student-athletes from the league’s affiliate members in the sport - Air Force, Northern Colorado, North Dakota State, South Dakota State, Utah Valley and Wyoming - total 41 selections. Forty-four student-athletes made the first team while 18 selections make up the second team.

First team members consist of those who have maintained a 3.20 or better GPA while the second team selections hold a 3.00 to 3.19 GPA.

To qualify, student-athletes must maintain a 3.00 GPA or higher either cumulative or the two previous semesters and must have participated in 60 percent of their team’s scheduled contests. Freshmen and transfers are not eligible in their first year of academic residence. Senior student-athletes who have participated for a minimum of two years and meet all the criteria except percent of participation are also eligible.
