Tech Matches School Record with Five NCAA Public Recognition Awards

Teams are recognized with the Public Recognition Award by the NCAA for posting Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores that are in the top 10 percent nationally of their individual sport.

The five teams - women's fencing, men's golf, women's tennis, women's volleyball and wrestling - earned multi-year April scores in the top 10 percent nationally for their respective sport through the 2016-17 academic year (data from 2013-14 through 2016-17). The metric provides a real-time measure of a sport program's academic performance based on points earned each semester by student-athletes for their academic standing and retention.

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 NCAA is announcing multiyear April scores for all Division I teams, including those earning public recognition awards, on May 23.

Each year, the NCAA honors selected NCAA Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear NCAA Division I April.

A pair of University of Arizona sports teams have earned flawless scores in the latest NCAA Academic Progress Report.

"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". GT golf is one of only 85 programs that has earned all 13 Public Recognition Awards. The APR is an annual scorecard of academic achievement. Of the teams recognized, 457 competed in men's or mixed sports, and 827 competed in women's sports.

Former student-athletes who return to school and graduate can earn a bonus point for their former team applied to the time he or she graduates.

The University of Arkansas has earned a public recognition award in 12 of the 13 years since the program was initiated.

Schools frequently tout April as a gauge of their academic success because athletes receive points for staying in school and for staying on pace to earn a degree within five years.

Penn State's 50 NCAA Championships all-time (78 national championships overall) rank No. 5 among all NCAA Division I programs and are the highest total of any college or university east of the Mississippi River. The women's golf program has also been exceptional on the course winning a school-record seven tournaments in 2017-18.
