CHICAGO - The College Gymnastics Association (CGA) recently announced its field of All-America Scholar Athletes and its National Academic Team Champion as five UIC student-athletes garnered first-or second-team recognition. 

Lukasz Adamczyk, Jason Gaides and David Ishida were chosen as first-team members, while Dan Zerbel and Travis Burke collected second-team honors.  The Flames' squad just missed a top-10 ranking in the team title race, but still came away with an honorable mention distinction.

The CGA selected 88 first-team honorees that needed a GPA of 3.50 or higher to qualify for the laurel.  Forty five second-team members were recognized as they totaled a GPA of 3.20 to 3.499.  Stanford claimed the team title with a combined GPA of 3.445.

Back in mid-April, Adamczyk and Gaides advanced to the 2013 NCAA Championships in the pommel horse and the all-around competition, respectively.
