The Utes had 26 athletes named to the Pac-12 Swimming and Diving All-Academic teams on Wednesday, up from 15 in 2013.

Last year’s team had just two first-teamers. This year the top squad includes three Ute men ­— sophomores Jacob Crayne (3.78 GPA in communications), David Fraser (3.73 business) and Josiah Purss (3.77 business) — and two Ute women in sophomore Ashlyn Karosas (3.78 exercise sport science) and junior Kersten Merry (3.68 communications, and a repeat achiever).

To be eligible, athletes must be at least a sophomore and make a significant contribution in the pool.

Second team • Men: Caleb Herrick (3.4 health education), Bence Kiraly (3.5 business), Kyle Owens (3.66 undeclared). Women: Paolina Carnevale (3.4 business), Katie Morgan (3.5 exercise sport science), Petra Soininen (3.6 biology), Traycie Swartz (3.5 parks, recreation and tourism), Sami Zuch (3.4 parks, recreation and tourism).
