Gymnasts make academic teams
Five UIC student-athletes were named to the College Gymnastics Association’s first or second teams of All-America Scholar Athletes and National Academic Team Champions.
Lukasz Adamczyk, Jason Gaides and David Ishida are first-team members; Dan Zerbel and Travis Burke were named to the second team.
The Flames’ squad just missed a top-10 ranking in the team title race, coming away with honorable mention.
A GPA of 3.50 or higher was required to qualify for the first team; a GPA of 3.20 to 3.499 was needed for second team.
Adamczyk and Gaides advanced to the 2013 NCAA Championships in the pommel horse and the all-around competition last spring.
