Eight GW Athletics Teams Recognized by NCAA With APR Public Recognition Award

Eight GW Athletics Teams Recognized by NCAA With APR Public Recognition Award”

"The key with the April is that it's a complete team effort, from our faculty to our campus advisers, coaches and administration", said Tommy Powell, the school's assistant provost for student-athlete academic development "We all work together to make a world-class experience for our student-athletes and prepare them for life when they leave". The other teams include: North Carolina men's basketball, Clemson football, Arizona State women's golf, Oklahoma women's gymnastics and Florida women's tennis.

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

Air Force had nine athletic programs recognized today by the NCAA for their latest multiyear NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR).

"Congratulations to our women's cross country, golf, men's tennis, women's track & field and volleyball programs on this outstanding achievement". The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship.

The NCAA did not recognize N.C. State for being among the top 10 percent, and its sports teams' scores have not been released. "Their support is vital to student success".

Georgia Tech volleyball, under head coach Michelle Collier, earned a Public Recognition Award for the third-straight year and fifth time overall while Alan Drosky's women's cross country squad received the award for the second year in a row and fifth time overall.

The APR measures eligibility, graduation and retention.

More troubling is that schools like North Carolina, which endured a lengthy scandal while enrolling athletes in sub-standard classes in order to keep them eligible, turned in excellent April scores while that behavior was occurring. Penn State ranks No. 4 among all Division I schools with 200 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans all-time, including Emily Ogle (women's soccer) and Haleigh Washington (women's volleyball) during the 2017 fall semester.

Among those teams were UNC's basketball team, which received a flawless 1,000 April score, and Duke's football team. Penn State's 31 NCAA titles since 1992-93 lead all Big Ten Conference institutions.
