WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – Boise State wrestling junior Jake Swartz was named to the Pac-12 All-Academic First Team, leading the group of four Broncos who were recognized for their academic achievement, Tuesday. To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be a significant contributor.

Swartz has earned academic all-conference honor each of his three active years at Boise State. After being named to the Second Team as a redshirt freshman, the Auburn, Wash., native has now been named to the first team in consecutive years. On the mat, Swartz finished the season with a 33-5 record and won his second-straight Pac-12 Championship at 184 pounds.

Junior J.T. Felix and sophomore Holden Packard each were named to the Second Team. It is the second award for Felix, who made the first team a year ago and currently holds a 3.33 GPA while pursuing a degree in Chemistry.
