WALNUT CREEK, CALIF. - Led by first-team selections Alex Vlaski and Daniel Chu, five Huskies were named to the 2005 Pac-10 All-Academic team for men's tennis conference commissioner Tom Hansen announced Wednesday. Vlaski and Chu were joined by Peter Scharler and Alex Slovic on the second-team and Chris Floyd on the honorable mention squad.

To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant contributor.

Vlaski, a native of Belgrade, Yugoslavia, has a 3.51 grade point average and is majoring in business administration. The honor is the third-straight first-team Pac-10 All-Academic nod for the Husky senior who was also named to the ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District VIII first-team last month.

Scharler, a senior from Salzburg, Austria, earned his second-straight second-team selection after being named to the honorable mention team in 2003.
