Brentwood, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) student-athletes continued to shatter records in the classroom, the Ohio Valley Conference announcing 126 Governors were recognized on its Commissioner’s Honor Roll, Monday.
The 126 Austin Peay student-athletes – nearly 40 percent of all the department’s athletes – named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll topped the record set last year and is the fourth time since 2001 more than 100 student-athletes were recognized in a single year. The Govs were part of an OVC-record 1,379 student-athletes recognized on the honor roll.
“The foundation of our ‘Total Gov’ concept is achieving at a high level in all that we do as Governors,” said Austin Peay Director of Athletics Gerald Harrison.
“We are proud to see over one-third of our student-athletes receiving recognition on the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll. It is a testament to the amount of work our student-athletes and student-athlete support services staff put in every day to put academics first,” Harrison stated.
To be recognized on the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll a student-athlete must have achieved at least a 3.25 grade-point average, have been eligible and on the team throughout the competitive season in their chosen NCAA-sponsored sport(s) and used a season of competition.
