MOREHEAD – More than 100 Morehead State University student-athletes earned spots on the 2013-14 Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll, with 16 earning an Academic Medal Of Honor.
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 grade point averages. To be listed on the honor roll, recipients must achieve at least a 3.25 GPA and be eligible throughout the competitive season.
“It is gratifying that so many of our student-athletes have been honored for their hard work in the classroom,” Assistant Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Services and Senior Woman Administrator Sara Larson said. “The commitment they show in the classroom and on the field is outstanding. Academics are a priority for our administrative and coaching staffs. I know our student-athletes continue to make it a priority too, and it shows how much they value their educational and athletic experience here at MSU.”
