The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, UW-Platteville, UW-River Falls, UW-Stout, UW-Superior and UW-Whitewater were winners of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference’s All-Academic Award for the 2012-2013 school year.

According to a WIAC news release, almost 50 percent of the 5,000 student-athletes competing in the conference achieved a 3.0 grade-point average or better (on a 4.0 scale) during the 2012-13 academic year and were named to the Scholastic Honor Roll.

Individuals named to the Scholastic Honor Roll received a certificate; institutions claiming All-Academic Awards collected a plaque.

Area high school alumni who earned the honor included:

Mauston: Tia Anderson (UW-La Crosse, Track and Field); Kenny Waukau (UW-Platteville, Baseball); David Linsmeyer (UW-Stout, Cross Country and Track and Field).
