COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - RMAC indoor pole vault champion Alex Colvin earned a spot on the conference's 2012-13 All-Academic Second Team announced Tuesday afternoon. Angie Martell and Alyssa Wendt were named to the Honor Roll.

She is second in UCCS program records for the indoor and outdoor pole vault. She was a member of the President's Honor Roll with a semester grade point average of 4.0 last fall as a human biology major.

Wendt finished fifth at the RMAC championships as a member of the distance medley relay and fifth in the 3,000-meter run at the Mines Twilight Collegiate Open. She was on the UCCS President's Honor Roll with a 4.0 semester GPA in the fall.

Martell earned All-RMAC honors in the 5,000-meter run with a season-best time of 18:06.52 and won the same event at the Colorado Mines Joe Davies College Open.  She earned a spot on the President's Honor Roll with a major in environmental science.

Student-athletes needed a 3.30 cumulative grade point average in at least two semesters of attendance to qualify for the RMAC All-Academic Teams. The first and second teams were selected by the Sports Information Directors at the conference schools with indoor track and field.
