PORTLAND, Ore. - Eight Alaska Anchorage Seawolves were named to the 2012 Great Northwest Athletic Conference Cross Country All-Conference Academic Team, announced by the league on Thursday.

Leading the GNAC field with a perfect 4.0 GPA were three student-athletes, including two from UAA - Bryn Haebe (nursing) and Christi Schmitz (nursing). Seniors Micah Chelimo (mechanical engineering) and Miriam Kipng'eno (nursing & nutrition) were among 10 student-athletes that received the accolade for the third year in a row.
