The sixth annual Sooner Athletic Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll was released on Tuesday afternoon, and a record 115 John Brown University student-athletes, more than 75 percent of those eligible, qualified for the list.

To be eligible for the Commissioner's Honor Roll, student-athletes must maintain a minimum 3.00 grade-point-average (GPA) during the previous academic year (two semesters).

"I am so proud of our student-athletes and their commitment to excellence in the classroom," said Robyn Daugherty, director of athletics. "In a world where athletic performance overshadows academic achievement, it is exciting to me to see over 70 percent of our student-athletes at a 3.00 or higher, especially at an institution where academics are very challenging."

For the first time ever, men's soccer paced all men's squads by placing 13 student-athletes (54 percent of those eligible) on the list, while women's soccer landed 21 (95 percent) of its roster on the list. All 15 (100 percent) of JBU volleyball student-athletes earned a spot on the list. Each intercollegiate program placed over 50 percent of its student-athletes on the roll.

Forty-three freshman earned the academic accolades in their first year of competition, while 53 John Brown honorees were selected for a consecutive academic year (46 percent).

The Commissioner's Honor Roll is presented by Cypress Risk Management, an Omaha, Neb.,-based insurance agency that specializes in providing customized solutions for collegiate student health and athletic accident insurance. The organization currently insures over 500,000 students nationwide and is already engaged with several other NAIA conferences in similar types of partnerships. Cypress Risk Management's partnership with the SAC gives it exclusive sponsorship to the newly-founded awards program that covers the 13 men's and women's NAIA-sanctioned sports the conference offers.
