The OVC annually recognizes those student-athletes who excel in the classroom. The league’s Medal of Honor recognizes those student-athletes with the highest cumulative grade-point average in their conference-sponsored sport. The OVC also recognizes student-athletes’ classroom achievements with the Commissioner’s Honor Roll which requires a minimum 3.25 cumulative grade-point average during the academic year.

For the recently completed 2013-14 academic year, Austin Peay saw 15 student-athletes receive the prestigious OVC Medal of Honor, each posting a 4.0 GPA during the year. Graduate Molly Basch, a member of the women’s track and field team, finished her with a fourth Medal of Honor. Senior Elizabeth Landon, of the volleyball team, earned her third Medal of Honor.

The OVC recognized 188 Academic Medal of Honor recipients this season. It also honored a record 1,254 student-athletes on the 2013-14 OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll.
