Record-Number Spartans Named Mountain West Scholar-Athletes

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.— For the second consecutive year, a school-record number of San José State University student-athletes received a 2022-23 Mountain West Scholar-Athlete Award as 91 Spartans are honored for their performances in the classroom during their athletic career.

The MW Scholar-Athlete Award is one of the highest academic honors bestowed by the conference.  To be eligible for the award this year, student-athletes must have completed at least two semesters at the institution and have a 3.5 or better cumulative grade point average while being a member of an intercollegiate team.

The Spartan student-athletes represent 15 sports, including four teams with double-digit honorees led by football at 12, women’s soccer with 11 and swimming and diving and women’s track and field with 10 each.

Women’s golfer Antonia Malate has the distinction of receiving five MW Scholar-Athlete recognitions for each year she was a Spartans. Eight others have the distinction of receiving four MW Scholar-Athlete recognitions – Kajsa Arwefjäll (WGolf), Dalton Bowling (BASE), Jillian Figueroa (SB), Andrew Jenkins (FB), Lara Marco Mas (WTN), Juliette Noyer (WTF), Alba Pedrero Galindo (WTN) and Sarah Smevog (VB)
