Brentwood, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) student-athletes accounted for 103 of a record 1,335 student-athletes named to the 2015-16 Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll, announced Wednesday by the conference office.
“Academic success is part of our department’s responsibility and a mission for our student-athletes,” said Austin Peay athletics director Ryan Ivey. “Similar to a successful on-field performance, what you do in the classroom comes down to how hard you’re willing to work; the sacrifice and dedication these student-athletes put in to have success on and off the field is second to none.”

The OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll recognizes those student-athletes that achieve at least a 3.25 grade-point average for the entire academic year, been eligible and used a season of competition while participating in their chosen NCAA-sponsored sport.
More than 10,500 student-athletes have been recognized on the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll during the past 10 years.
“We are immensely proud of these students because they have not only achieved on the playing field but also in the classroom,” said OVC Commissioner Beth DeBauche. “These students have demonstrated a sense of balance already in their lives which is important to life-long success. From the League perspective we are proud because we have had continual growth in the number of honorees which demonstrates the Conference’s sustaining commitment to the broader student-athlete experience.”
The OVC will announce Academic Medal of Honor recipients, Thursday, and team and overall Academic Achievement Awards Friday.
