Jundt Leads Blugolds on NCHA Men's Hockey All-Academic Team
University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire men's hockey player Tyler Jundt, a senior finance major from Williston, ND, was named the 2012 Norther Collegiate Hockey Association's (NCHA) Co-Scholar-Athlete, leading eight Blugolds on this year's All-Academic team.
Jundt is a two-time NCHA All-Academic winner and has been on the Academic Distinction and Dean's List at UW-Eau Claire a number of times. He has been captain of the Blugolds for the past two seasons and received the UW-Eau Claire Richard G. O'Brien Award last year in recognition of excellence in the classroom and on the ice. Jundt has volunteered in several capacities during his time at UW-Eau Claire, including local youth hockey and book drives. This season Jundt was named to the All-NCHA team while being a major contributor on a Blugold blue line that reached the semifinals of the Peters Cup Playoffs.
The Scholar-Athlete Award is given annually to a senior or seniors who demonstrate excellence both on and off the ice, who earn a minimum GPA of 3.5 and who are in their final year of eligibility.
In addition to Jundt, Jordan Singer, a junior management major from Lino Lakes, MN, and Andrew Wilcox, a senior marketing major from Rochester, MN were named to the All-Academic Team for the second time in their careers. First-time selections include COB students PJ Kavaya, a senior management major from San Clemente, CA, and Devin Mantha, a junior management major from Sturgeon Falls, Ontario.
