Women’s basketball earned nine, women’s golf earned eight, both men’s golf and women’s tennis earned seven, while men’s basketball added five.

Wyoming had 46 freshmen, 22 seniors, 21 juniors and 13 sophomores honored by the league for their academic success.

Wyoming’s 102 student-athletes was the fourth-most in the league, behind New Mexico’s 120, Utah State’s 109 and Boise State’s 108 honorees.
