CLEVELAND – After closing the 2014 season with his second consecutive trip to the NCAA Division II Wrestling Championships, sophomore Zak Hale was named to the 2013-14 Division II All-Academic First Team, selected by Division II Wrestling Coaches Association.

A pre-engineering major, Hale carries a 3.20 GPA and was one of 47 wrestlers throughout the country to be honored on the first team, while 134 other student-athletes were named to the second team and honorable mention list.
