SAN BRUNO, CALIF. -- The 2007 West Coast Conference Winter All-Academic teams honor some of the league's finest examples of the consummate scholar-athlete. Near the completion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each of the participating sponsored sports.

This year's women's group is highlighted by Gonzaga's Stephanie Hawk and Jami Bjorklund, and LMU's Jennifer Hall who were each named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VIII first team in February. San Diego's Sabine Loewe and Santa Clara's Ashley Graham garnered Academic All-Conference honors for the third time in their respective careers, while Hawk, San Francisco's Dominique Carter and Portland's Rachel Warren received recognition for the second straight season. Four conference programs placed multiple players on the All-Academic Team.

On the men's side, Gonzaga's Sean Mallon, Portland's Ben Sullivan, and San Diego's Ross DeRogatis were each selected for Academic All-Conference honors for the third straight year, while Santa Clara's Mitch Henke and Joey Kaempf, and San Francisco's Vince Polakovic were each recognized for the second straight year. This season's Academic All-WCC squad also features five first-time selections in Gonzaga`s David Pendergraft, LMU's Corey Counts, San Francisco's Danny Cavic, and Santa Clara's Scott Dougherty and Danny Pariseau.
