Ten Mid-American Conference wrestling student-athletes earned first-team Academic All-MAC selection
in voting conducted by Mid-American Conference Faculty Athletic Representatives. Overall, seventeen
student-athletes earned either first-team or honorable mention on the All-Academic squad.
1999 MAC champion Central Michigan, which finished seventh in the NCAA wrestling
championships, placed three wrestlers on the academic squad:
Casey Cunningham, Chris Snyder, and
Chris Vike. Cunningham and Vike were both 1999 All-Americans, with Cunningham claiming the NCAA Division I
title in the 157-pound weight class. All three CMU honorees were MAC individual champions in 1999.
Kent and Miami also placed three student-athletes apiece on the first team. Kent's selections are
Steve Daugherty, Ed Hamway, and John
Moore. Miami's All-Academic performers include
Aaron Boucher, Josh Hegedish, and
Brad Weeks. Daugherty finished in third place in the 141-pound weight class at
the MAC championships and Boucher was fourth at 149 pounds.
Ohio's Dan Bednar, second at the MAC championships at 197 pounds, rounds out the first-team selections.
Earning honorable mention on the All-Academic squad are:
Greg Bentley and Matthew Ricci of Buffalo;
Marc Smith and Adam French from Eastern Michigan; and
Adam Whitlach, Shane Hartzler, and
Neal Harvey of Ohio University.
Academic All-Mid-American Conference honorees are student-athletes who have excelled in academics
and athletics. To qualify a student-athlete must have at least a 3.0 grade point average during his or her
college career and be a starter or top reserve during the just-completed season.
