Five South Dakota State wrestlers earned academic awards from the Western Wrestling Conference for the 2011-12 academic year...

Aaron Pickrel earned special mention with the second-best GPA in the entire conference.

To qualify for the All-Academic team, student-athletes had to secure a minimum 3.20 cumulative grade point average, be a starter or key reserve and be a sophomore or higher in academic standing. The Coaches’ Honor Roll recognizes student-athletes who have maintained a 3.0 cumulative grade point average.

In addition to Pickrel, Joe Skow and Andrew Youngblom earned All-Academic team honors.

SDSU tied for the league lead with three wrestlers on the All-Academic team.

John Nething II and Tyler Johnson earned Coaches' Honor Roll recognition.

As a team, the Jacks earned the 18th-best GPA in the nation.
