Another Perfect APR Score For UConn Men; Huskies Well Above National Average

Another Perfect APR Score For UConn Men; Huskies Well Above National Average

Men's golf and women's tennis have posted a flawless rate 11 times in 12 years while women's basketball held a 1,000 April for the seventh consecutive year and eighth time overall. "We are proud of the progress we have made, but we have more to do as we work each and every day to develop our student-athletes to their fullest potential through intercollegiate athletics".

"The latest April report is just another indication that Razorback student-athletes continue to raise the bar academically on their way to graduation", Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. Each year, the NCAA tracks the classroom performance of student-athletes on every Division I team through the annual scorecard of academic achievement, known as April. This year's multi-year rate was an improvement over the previous year for the fourth consecutive year.

Every Division I sports team calculates its April each academic year, similar to a report card.

The Herd football team posted a 968 April, while men's basketball recorded a 960.

In addition to a team's current-year April, its rolling four-year April is also used to determine accountability.

The APR announcement follows Marshall having 64 academic medal winners in Conference USA for 2015-16, which was second most in the league.

Golf, soccer, tennis and volleyball also have ideal multiyear APRs with no women's sport scoring lower than 988. "Our student-athletes understand that performance in the classroom is a priority".

In addition to national recognition, nine Alabama teams ranked among the top two in their respective sports in the SEC, with gymnastics, women's golf, men's cross country, women's tennis, and women's swimming and diving all ranked No. 1 in the league. Baseball teams earned a 973 four-year rate (up from 970), and football teams earned a 962 (up from 959).

The four teams not to break 970 were men's swimming (965), football (961) and softball (961).

Pitt's scores were at or above last year's marks for 11 of 17 programs, with softball showing the largest jump of +12 for a flawless score of 1000.

The Highlanders also had five other sports achieve flawless single-year scores: men's golf, men's soccer, women's basketball, women's tennis and volleyball. The average four-year rate for all NCAA sports in the latest data is 981, up two points from last year. The program scored a flawless 1,000 multiyear rate. This report's multiyear scores are based on the 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 academic years. "The high scores are a reflection of the pride they take in their own development and also of the culture that our coaches and academic support staff have in place".

The Oregon football program had a score of 976 for the 2015-16 academic year, which raised its four-year average to 974.
