12 Programs Honored Academically by NCAA
12 Minnesota teams received academic honors by the NCAA

May 7, 2014

Twelve Minnesota teams have been honored with Academic Progress Rates (APR) Public Recognition Awards, the NCAA announced Wednesday, May 7. The awards are given each year to teams scoring in the top 10 percent in each sport based on their most recent multi-year APR. The twelve teams more than doubles the five Minnesota teams recognized last year and is another indicator of Gopher Athletics academic commitment.

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 APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team's academic performance. The most recent APR scores are based on a multi-year rate that averages scores from the 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years.

Baseball, men's gymnastics, men's tennis, men's track (indoor), wrestling, women's basketball, women's cross-country, women's golf, women's gymnastics, soccer, women's swimming and volleyball all scored in the top 10 percent in their respective sports.

The NCAA will release comprehensive multi-year APR rates for all schools May 14.
