Chilliwack student-athletes earn All-Academic status

Four Chilliwackians who are playing or played at the University of the Fraser Valley were named Academic All-Canadians Thursday.

Chilliwack natives are all over the University of the Fraser Valley’s list of Academic All-Canadian student athletes.

The list was released Thursday.

Two Chilliwackians on the womens’ basketball team, Sarah and Nicole Wierks, were named.

Former Sardis secondary school soccer star Danika Snook got the nod from the UFV womens’ soccer team and Craig Robinson was recognized on the mens’ soccer side.

He has since graduated.

With 140 student-athletes participating on eight different UFV teams in 2012-2013, 15 per cent achieved an 80 per cent or higher average in their studies.

Their overall GPA average was 2.95.

“I’m very proud of what these student athletes have accomplished and they are most deserving of their awards,” said UFV Athletic Director Rocky Olfert.
