    SD Mines Men's Soccer: Hardrocker's Dahmke earns GNCA Academic Team honors

    PORTLAND, Ore. – South Dakota School of Mines sophomore soccer player Gabe Dahmke was the lone Hardrocker to earn Great Northwest Athletic Conference Soccer Academic All-Conference honors announced Wednesday afternoon. 

    Dahmke is a 6-foot-1-inch defender for the Hardrocker soccer program currently in its second year of existence. The Sheridan, Wyo., native also becomes the first ever South Dakota School of Mines scholar-athlete to earn a conference honor at the NCAA Div. II level. 

    “I’m very proud of Gabe,” said Hardrocker soccer heads coach Joe Burger. “He is the first guy to ever earn a Div. II conference honor. It means a lot to him and it means a lot to the Hardrocker soccer team. Gabe is exactly the type of student-athlete we want in our program and at our great institution.” 

    Dahmke is pursuing a degree in Civil Engineering while attending South Dakota School of Mines. 

    To be eligible for the GNAC academic team, student-athletes must be a letter winner, have a minimum grade point average of 3.20 and be in at least their second year of competition at their university. 

    A total of 82 student-athletes – 53 women and 29 men - have been selected to the 2013 GNAC Soccer Academic all-conference team. 

    Central Washington and Saint Martin’s led the way placing nine players each on the women’s team.  Seattle Pacific had eight and Western Washington had seven all-academic selections on the women’s team. 

    Seattle Pacific had the most academic selections on the men’s team with eight.  Western Washington and University of Mary each placed five on the men’s academic team. 

    Twelve student-athletes were named to the soccer academic team for the third time, including six women and six men.   An additional 30 student-athletes, 24 women and six men - earned academic all-star honors for the second time.
