Six Bruins have been named to the All-Pac-10 Academic Team, as announced by the conference on Tuesday. Senior Jade Machado and sophomore Jazmin Machado both earned first-team honors, while senior Jessica Fine and sophomores Emily Clements, Dicey McGraw and Katie Mills were all named to the honorable mention team.
For the elder Machado, it is the third time she has been named to the All-Pac-10 Academic First Team. She was also recognized earlier this month on the ESPN The Magazine All-Academic Second Team.
It is the second straight honorable mention accolade for Fine and the first honors for Jazmin Machado, Clements, McGraw and Mills.
To be eligible for the All-Pac-10 Academic team, a student-athlete must have been at their institution for one academic year, have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant contributor.
The Bruins have accrued 61 All-Pac-10 Academic selections and 20 first-team awards.
