PEORIA, Ill. -- The Missouri Valley Conference has recognized four Bradley student-athletes with the President's Council Academic Excellence Award along with 131 other BU student-athletes who were named to the 2011-12 MVC Honor Roll, according to an announcement by the league office Friday.

Soccer players Kyle Orne and Bobby Smith joined men's basketball player Charonn Woods and women's golfer Kelly Amundrud as President's Council Academic Excellence Award winners and were among 63 Valley student-athletes to earn the league's highest academic achievement.  The President's Council Academic Excellence Award requires a minimum 3.8 cumulative grade point average (through the Fall 2011 semester), participation in athletics a minimum of two years and the student-athlete must be within 18 hours of graduation.

Of the 135 Bradley student-athletes named to the MVC Honor Roll for posting a minimum 3.2 grade point average during the Fall 2011 semester, 52 also received the Commissioner's Academic Excellence Award, requiring a 3.5 minimum grade point average for the previous two semesters.  The women's cross country/track and field teams led the way with 12 individuals earning the Commissioner's Academic Excellence Award.  The women's golf team had six Commissioner's Academic Excellence Award recipients with men's cross country, softball and volleyball each boasting five individuals. 

More than 80 percent of Bradley student-athletes posted a 3.0 semester grade point average in at least one of the two semesters during the 2011-12 academic year and BU's 200 student-athletes produced a department record 3.25 semester grade point average during the 2012 spring semester. 

Bradley had 11 individuals earn First-Team MVC Scholar-Athlete honors during the 2011-12 school year, marking the most for the Braves since producing 13 First-Team Valley Scholar-Athletes in 2007-08.
