LOGAN, Utah – Fourteen members of the BYU gymnastics team were named to the Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference Academic All-MRGC Team, the league announced on Monday.
To be eligible for the award, the student-athletes were required to have a 3.2 GPA or higher in the 2020-21 academic year.
BYU's 14 Academic All-MRGC honorees helped the Cougars finish the 2021 winter semester with a combined 3.29 GPA as a team. In total, the MRGC recognized 67 student-athletes, led by Southern Utah with 22. Boise State and Utah State followed with 16 honorees each.
