Hawaii had 34 athletes named to the Western Athletic Conference all-academic teams for fall sports yesterday out of the 312 honored from the nine member schools.

Fifteen Warriors were named from the football team and the Rainbow Wahine had nine from soccer, seven from volleyball and three from cross country.

To be eligible, an athlete must have at least sophomore standing, at least a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average and play in 50 percent or more of the team's games. Hawaii does not release the GPAs because of privacy issues.
