For the second consecutive year, senior swimmer Bill Gaul, ChE’07, was named Player of the Year on the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America team. It is the third time in the last four seasons that a UMR swimmer has earned this top academic award.

Gaul, who earned 11 All-America awards in his four seasons with the Miners, was also a first-team Academic All-America recipient for the second year in a row in the College Sports Information Directors of America program. Swimmer Andy Shelley, ME’07, was chosen to the third team.

Gaul and Shelley were also recipients of NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarships worth $7,500 toward graduate school. Both were selected to the College Swimming Coaches Association of America’s all-academic team, where the Miners have been the top-ranked team in NCAA Division II.

Ceramic engineering student Becca Kueny was a first-team pick to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America track team. She finished ninth in the javelin throw at the NCAA Division II Track and Field Championships in May after repeating as the GLVC champion in that event. UMR finished with five Academic All-America selections in the 2006-07 school year.
