Cross Country, Tennis Recognized for Perfect APR Scores

Seven Bryant teams earn Public Recognition Awards from NCAA

The Syracuse University athletic department announced that all of its athletic programs had achieved NCAA Academic Progress Rate scores of 930 or better in the NCAA's most recent calculation, beating the necessary requirement for teams to be eligible for NCAA championship events. Baylor baseball, men's basketball, softball and soccer teams scored in the Top 10 percent nationally in Academic Progress Rate (APR) in their respective sports. It accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation each term to provide a clear measure of each team's academic performance.

In order to earn the flawless 1.000, each program posted ideal single year scores of 1.000 for the academic years of 2013-2014, 2014-2015, 2015-2016, and 2016-2017.

The two UA teams were among the 1,200 teams from 312 Division I schools to be recognized for academic excellence.

Women's golf is being honored for the first time.

Women's basketball picked up the recognition for the 13th straight year and the program is just one of 85 teams from all sports that have earned the recognition in every year of program. Swimming and diving was one of five programs, a school record, recognized in 2011-12 joining men's golf, men's tennis, gymnastics and volleyball. The latest data is yet another indicator of across-the-board student-athlete success at Villanova.

Another adds: "His heart was, he wanted to be on the stage". "And eventually, she (Houston) stepped down to lift him up". One in particular, appears to be Paula Abdul who Houston effortlessly shaded as being the inferior singer.

The women's tennis program has been honored 10 consecutive times, while the men's tennis program was recognized for the fifth time and fourth consecutive. "Coach Tramel, his student-athletes and the hard-working academic advisors in the Buck Harless Student-Athlete Program are worthy of this recognition for a job well done". The 2016-17 honor was the first for the program and marked the first time a Razorback sport made its debut in the public recognition awards since both swimming and diving and volleyball earned their first honors in 2011-12.

The NCAA's April is created to track the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship at a particular institution.

The APR is an annual scorecard of academic achievement calculated for all Division I sports teams.

The actual April for each Division I team will be released May 23. The women's golf program has also been exceptional on the course winning a school-record seven tournaments in 2017-18.
