"Hustle Award" at OVU --
The Ohio Valley University Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) recently presented the inaugural Ron Pavan Hustle Award to mens lacrosse player, Joel Sweitzer. The annual award recognizes an OVU student-athlete whose hard work in both practice and competition has served as an inspiration to teammates.
The award is named in honor of former OVU Athletic Director Ron Pavan, who directed Fighting Scots athletics for 14 years and was instrumental in leading the school through the transition from the NAIA to NCAA Division II.
Pavan is in his fifth year as the the AD at Lebanon's Cumberland University.
