NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - For the second time in his track and field career, senior jumper Daniel Wu was added to the Atlantic 10 Academic All-Conference team for a combination of his athletic and academic performance this indoor season. Wu joins a list of ten conference athletes who were honored with the award.
