Athletics Receives High Marks In APR Scores
GREENSBORO, N.C. – The UNCG athletics department had all 17 teams receive satisfactory marks in the latest Academic Progress Report (APR) scores released by the NCAA Wednesday, including seven teams placing above the national Division I average. The scores announced Wednesday reflect the multiyear APR scores for the 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years.
“We are pleased that our programs are continuing to excel academically,” UNCG Director of Athletics Kim Record said. “We had seven teams above the national average, including three teams with perfect scores, which is something to be proud of. Our goal is to continually improve our scores across the board each year and we are proud of the academic success of our student-athletes.”
Seven of UNCG’s 17 teams had a multiyear APR score better than the national average, including three perfect scores of 1,000 by men’s indoor track, men’s outdoor track and men’s cross country. Additionally, men’s basketball (975), women’s indoor track (981), women’s outdoor track (981) and volleyball (983) were listed above the national average.
The men’s cross country, indoor track, outdoor track teams were honored last week by the NCAA with the APR Public Recognition Award for the third straight year. The award recognizes the teams in the top 10 percent of all Division I programs in the respective sports.
Additionally, the Spartans had six teams with perfect 1000 scores for the 2012-13 academic year and nine teams above the national average that year alone. Among the perfect scores in 2012-13 were men’s cross country, men’s golf, men’s tennis, women’s indoor track, women’s outdoor track and volleyball while men’s basketball (990) and men’s soccer (982) were above the national average.
The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester or quarter by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes eligibility, retention and graduation in the calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.
