Austin Peay Sports
Nashville, TN – For a fourth straight year, Austin Peay State University women’s golf team has earned the Ohio Valley Conference Team Academic Achievement Award for its respective sport.
Lady Govs golf was one of two APSU teams to earn such distinction, joining the Governors Tennis team. The team academic achievement awards are presented annually in each OVC-sponsored sport to the member institution’s team with the greatest percentage of its eligible student-athletes who achieved a 3.25 grade point average or higher-the Lady Govs golf team had seven members earn such status while the men’s tennis team had five.
“They are motivated to do their very best and that is all any coach can ask for. It is an honor to receive this award for the fourth straight year and we will continue our hard work on and off the golf course for the 2012-2013 season.”
The Lady Govs golf team also was voted the OVC Sportsmanship Award for their respective sport last spring.
The conference also announced on Thursday a record 176 OVC Medal of Honor recipients, including 13 Austin Peay athletes, and the 2011-12 OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, with 89 APSU members. The OVC Medal of Honor is presented annually to student-athletes who achieve the highest grade-point average in a Conference-sponsored sport.
Those APSU student athletes to earn OVC Medals of Honor for 2011-12 (and all achieved 4.0 grade-point averages) were: Lucas Anderson and Chuck Edlin (baseball); Kristen Stainback (women’s basketball); Ben Stansfield (football); Tabitha Beard (women’s golf); Claire Pultz (soccer); Sean Bailey and Michal Hriciste (men’s tennis); Molly Basch and Josephine Saffert (women’s track and field); Calyn Hull, Elizabeth Landon and Hillary Plybon (women’s volleyball).
The Commissioner’s Honor Roll includes student-athletes who achieved 3.25 grade-point averages during the respective school year.
