ST. LOUIS — SIU senior utility player Austin Montgomery has been selected Missouri Valley Conference male scholar-athlete of the week, league commissioner Doug Elgin announced on Friday.

Montgomery was honored for his performances during the period of April 29-May 5. The Marion native hit .565 with 10 RBIs in five games for the Salukis last week. Montgomery had three three-hit games and matched a season high with four RBIs at Illinois on Tuesday. He holds a 3.47 GPA in mechanical engineering.

To qualify for Missouri Valley Conference scholar-athlete of the week laurels, student-athletes must carry a cumulative GPA of 3.20 or better, completed at least one academic year at a Valley institution and must be at least a sophomore in academic standing.

This marks the third time this season that Montgomery has earned MVC Scholar-Athlete honors.
