MSU Student-Athletes Recognized for Academic Success
July 2, 2014
ST. LOUIS – Missouri State University was well represented on the list of more than 1,500 student-athletes who earned selection to the 2013-14 Missouri Valley Conference Honor Roll, as announced by the league office on July 2.
A total of 62 student-athletes from the league's 10 schools -- including MSU standouts Cole Alexander (men's soccer), Karly Buer (women's basketball) and Ashley Mason (volleyball) -- earned the highest academic achievement by capturing the Missouri Valley Conference President’s Council Academic Excellence Award. This distinction requires a minimum 3.8 cumulative grade point average (through spring 2014 semester), participation in athletics a minimum of two years, and the student-athlete must be within 18 hours of graduation.
Also, 66 Bears joined hundreds of student-athletes from around the league who received the league’s Commissioner’s Academic Excellence Award, which requires a minimum grade point average of 3.5 for the previous two semesters, a minimum 3.2 cumulative grade point average, and participation in athletics.
In addition, the Missouri Valley Conference has announced its 2013-14 Honor Roll, which recognizes academic achievement of student-athletes. To qualify for the Valley Honor Roll, a student-athlete must have recorded a minimum 3.2 grade point average for a specified term (fall 2013/spring 2014), must have been a member of an athletics team, and must have a minimum of 12 hours of enrollment during the fall or spring semesters.
The MVC Honor Roll includes only student-athletes from the league's championship sports. MSU student-athletes who participated in football, field hockey or men's swimming and diving are not represented on the list of Valley academic achievers.
