WOODLAND, Calif. – Six Alaska Anchorage gymnasts have been honored for their classroom success as the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation announced its 2017 Women’s Gymnastics All-Academic Team.

Among the 35 total honorees from the MPSF’s six institutions, UAA’s Madeleine Arbuckle produced the second-highest overall grade-point average with a 3.91, just edged by Seattle Pacific’s Lauren Glover with a 3.92. The junior all-arounder from Winnipeg, Manitoba, is an environmental studies major.

Senior Nicole Larkin earned her third consecutive MPSF academic award with a 3.48 GPA in biological sciences, while senior Brice Mizell (3.35, nursing/sociology) and juniors Morgan Ross (3.75, environment & society) and Kendra Daniels (3.42, technology) all made the team for the second straight year. Rounding out the Seawolf contingent in her first year of eligibility for the academic team was sophomore Kaylin Mancari (3.44, natural sciences).
