Brentwood, TN – Ninety-five Austin Peay State University student-athletes were recognized on the Ohio Valley Conference’s Commissioner’s Honor Roll for their academic achievements during the 2013-14 academic year. That total included 15 student-athletes who received the league’s Academic Medal of Honor.
“The greatest metric of our success at Austin Peay is our commitment to excellence in the classroom,” said van der Merwe. “The student-athletes at this great University are special and represent the very best of the Ohio Valley Conference. We are proud of what this says about our student-athletes, our University, and the many great faculty and staff to rally behind our students every day.”
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.
