MOREHEAD – A school-record 21 Morehead State University student-athletes earned an Ohio Valley Conference Academic Medal of Honor for 2012-13, while nearly 100 earned spots on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll.


The Medal of Honor is given annually to student-athletes who achieve the highest grade point average in a conference-sponsored sport. All those honorees recorded 4.00 GPAs. The previous benchmark was 19 in 2011-12.


“I am very proud of the academic achievements of all our student-athletes,” Assistant Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Services and Senior Woman Administrator Sara Larson said. “The commitment they have in the classroom and on the field is tremendous, and it is nice to see them recognized for all of their hard work. Academics are a priority in the athletic department, not only for our administrative staff, but for our coaching staff and student-athletes as well.”


To be listed on the honor roll, recipients must achieve at least a 3.25 GPA and be eligible throughout the competitive season.
