Three UGA varsity sports teams have been publicly recognized by the NCAA for outstanding achievement in the annual NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) report.
The recognition honors teams that scored in the top ten percent of all teams across the country in each sport. The UGA women’s cross country, men’s tennis, and volleyball teams all scored a perfect 1000.
“Our coaches, staff, and student-athletes are committed to both the academic and athletic missions of the Athletic Association,” said UGA J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics Greg McGarity. “Congratulations are in order for these three teams cited for academic achievement. Their accomplishment provides a great point of pride for the Athletic Association and the University.”
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 and retention and provides a measure of each team’s academic performance.
The NCAA will release its full APR report on May 10.
