The 163 honorees are WKU’s most since 2015 and its second-most overall since joining C-USA.

WKU Athletics also announced student-athletes with a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or better will also receive the Commissioner’s Academic Medal. Those recipients will be announced Friday.

Over the 2019 calendar year, 72 student-athletes have earned their degrees from WKU with a combined GPA of over 3.15.
