Which Honor is better to list on CommonApp?

I've already used four and I'm deciding between two to list as the last. It's between AP Scholar or my school's 'Student Academic Athlete Award' that's given to one person from each sports team. Not too sure on which one looks better. BTW i'm not reporting AP scores, I got a 3, 3, and 4 but A, A, A- in those classes so i feel like it'll appear those classes were easy.

    I think that it would look odd to list the "AP Scholar" honor and then not report (officially) AP scores.

    Also, if it matters in your decision of what to do, I wouldn't second guess how colleges view your A/A- grades relative to the AP scores on those courses.

    You can put the extra one in the "additional information" in the writing section.
