Griz Place 29 on Big Sky All-Academic Teams


Montana seniors Kellee Glaus and Jordan Sullivan both became four-time Academic All-Big Sky Conference selections when the league announced its winter all-academic teams last week.

Glaus, the 2013 Big Sky indoor champion in the triple jump and UM indoor record-holder in the event (40-2.75), has a 3.92 grade point average as a biology major. She will become a four-time spring all-academic selection this summer.

Sullivan has a 3.88 GPA as a marketing major. She was voted second-team All-Big Sky by the league’s coaches in March and concluded her career with 129 games played, four more than any other player in Lady Griz history.

After leading the conference with a league-high 58 selections on the fall Academic All-Big Sky Conference teams that were announced in January, Montana had 29 on the winter teams, a total that ranked eighth in the Big Sky.
