The first part of the NCAA’s annual APR report is out and five Tech teams were recognized for being in the top 10 percent of their sports: baseball, men’s cross country, golf, women’s cross country and volleyball.
Overall, 841 teams were recognized by the NCAA. The APR, or Academic Progress Rate, provides “a real-time view of a team’s academic success by tracking the progress of each student-athlete during the school year. By measuring eligibility and retention each semester or quarter, the APR provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.
“An APR score of 925 is the minimum level of academic success; teams scoring below 925 can lose scholarships and face other sanctions over time, including bans on postseason play.”
The rest of the scores are coming out later this spring.
You can find a searchable database for the scores here.
