Thirty-nine Northwestern student-athletes were named Winter Academic All-Big Ten honorees, the conference announced Wednesday.

Student-athletes must be in at least their second year academically and must maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or better to be eligible. More than 700 winter sports athletes, defined as those competing in men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s gymnastics, men’s wrestling and men’s hockey, were honored across the conference.

Two members of the men’s basketball team, eight members of the women’s basketball team, 11 members of the men’s swimming and diving team, 14 members of the women’s swimming and diving team and four members of the wrestling team were honored for the Wildcats.

Notable selections include senior guard Dave Sobolewski of the men’s basketball team, who was a key reserve during the season, and junior swimmer Jordan Wilimovsky, who finished third in the 1650-meter freestyle event at the NCAA Championships last week.
