Two UA sports teams post ideal April scores


Huskies continue to achieve in the classroom.

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

A total of four University of Alabama athletics teams have been honored with the 2018 NCAA Division I Public Recognition Award, the NCAA announced Wednesday.

Full APR scores will be released next Wednesday, and UNM says all 22 sports should reach the 930 threshold established by the NCAA for the multiyear rate. The most recent APRs are based on scores from the 2014-17 academic years.

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

"Congratulations to our women's golf, gymnastics and women's tennis programs on being recognized nationally for their academic excellence", Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Hunter Yurachek said. "Our Student-Athlete Success Program continues its outstanding work with all 24 of our sports and I want to thank them for their tireless dedication to our student-athletes".

Among those 13 award-winning programs are three Irish sports-men's cross country, men's track and field and softball-that have been recognized in all 13 years the NCAA has presented the public recognition awards. GU men's basketball, women's basketball and baseball were the only WCC teams in their respective sports to earn Public Recognition Awards. To be recognized, a program must rank in the top 10 percent within the sport nationally. It accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation each term to provide a clear measure of each team's academic performance.

The Tech baseball program recorded a multi-year April of 995 - its highest ever. The spring academic semester which just concluded was the 30th consecutive semester in which Wildcats student-athletes maintained a collective grade-point average above a 3.0, and the seventh straight semester in which the GPA for student-athletes was higher than a 3.2. "To have nine national champions so far this year - including men's and women's basketball - be among those recognized illustrates that student-athletes succeed athletically and academically". The women's golf program has also been exceptional on the course winning a school-record seven tournaments in 2017-18.
