ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A record-tying six baseball student-athletes at the University of New Mexico were named Mountain West Scholar-Athletes the conference announced Tuesday. It ties the mark set by the team just last season and is the second most by a men’s team at UNM during the 2013-14 academic year.

All four student-athletes who earned the honor in 2013 and were eligible again in 2014 did so as senior pitchers Kevin Baumgartner and AJ Carman were joined by sophomores Drew Bridges and Sam Haggerty. The two first-time winners were junior transfer Aaron Siple and freshman pitcher Conner Rusch.

In order to be eligible student-athletes must have completed at least two semesters at UNM, have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better and appeared in at least one game this season. Baumgartner, Bridges, Haggerty and Siple were among 13 baseball student-athletes named Academic All-Mountain West on Monday, and Haggerty earned the program’s first CoSIDA Academic All-America honor since 2006 last month.

Head coach Ray Birmingham has now had 23 Mountain West Scholar-Athletes in his seven years at UNM.

Overall, a league-record 651 student-athletes were honored, including 50 individuals who have achieved a 4.00 or higher cumulative grade point average over two or more terms, and 85 student-athletes who were recognized in multiple sports. The 651 honorees surpass the previous Conference high of 632 in 2012-13.
