* Notes multiple GNAC Academic Selections in career

“I am extremely proud of our All-GNAC Academic selections for their commitment to excellence both in the classroom and on the court,” said WWU head coach Diane Flick-Williams. “It is a pride point of our entire program to excel in both areas, as well as in the community, and I think each of our players do a great job in all those areas.”

To earn selection to the GNAC All-Academic Team, student-athletes must have a 3.20 cumulative grade point average or better, be of sophomore standing or better and be in at least their second season of competition. Per conference rules, freshman, redshirt freshman and first-year transfers are not eligible.

The nationally-ranked No. 8 Vikings are 22-3 on the season heading into the final two weeks of the regular season remaining, and hold a one-game lead in the GNAC standings with a 16-1 league record.
