UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE TEAMS HONORED FOR APR SUCCESSCourtesy: Tennessee Athletics
The University of Tennessee women’s golf and women’s tennis teams were recognized by the NCAA today for posting multiyear APRs in the top 10 percent of all Division I squads. Both teams posted a multi-year APR of 1000.
“We are very proud of the academic success of our student-athletes,” said Joan Cronan, women’s athletic director. “These teams have demonstrated exceptional work ethic in the classroom and on their playing fields. This is a great honor for them and our program.”
Each year the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear APR. This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams who demonstrate a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APRs within their respective sports. Specifically, these teams posted multiyear APRs in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sport.
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.
Multiyear APRs for all Division I sports teams, including the teams receiving public recognition, will be announced at a later date.
