SAN DIEGO - San Diego State had 33 student-athletes earn Mountain West Scholar-Athlete honors for the 2015-16 academic year, the conference announced Friday afternoon.

For the second straight year, the track and field team had 10 honorees and had an additional three land on the scholar-athlete list from the cross country squad. Softball had the second-highest total with five honorees and was followed by baseball (3), women’s tennis (3), women’s basketball (2), football (2), swimming and diving (2), women’s golf (1), women’s soccer (1), and men’s tennis (1).

The MW Scholar-Athlete Award is one of the highest academic honors bestowed by the Conference.
