Aug. 22, 2014 BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Forty-three Western Washington University student-athletes were named recipients of 2013-14 Division II Athletics Directors Association Academic Achievement Awards presented by WeatherPORT announced Friday.

Three WWU student-athletes were honored for the fourth time. They were Emily Boerger (Sr., Marysville/Marysville-Pilchuck), Chip Jackson (Sr., Seattle/Shorecrest) and Diana Pollock (Sr., Bellevue)
