NCAA Honors 58 A-10 Teams With APR Public Recognition

Release: 05/07/2014

NEWPORT NEWS, Va.— The Atlantic 10 Conference had 58 of its teams earn national recognition from the NCAA in the Academic Progress Rate (APR) the NCAA announced Wednesday. The 58 programs, which is the most for the A-10 since 2010, ranked in the top 10 percent of their respective sports in APR scores compiled through the 2012-13 academic year.

The NCAA honored 1,049 Division I teams with its Public Recognition Award based on those institution’s most recent multi-year Academic Progress Rate. These awards are given each year to teams with APRs in the top 10 percent in each sport. The 58 teams also is the second most all-time for the A-10, just behind the 59 that were singled out by the NCAA in 2010.

The Atlantic 10 ranked fifth in number of teams recognized among 31 Division I leagues. The NCAA will release this year’s full APR report, with the most recent data on May 14. In last year’s report, the A-10 ranked fifth among all conferences. The league also ranked fifth in the NCAA's Graduation Success Rate, which was released last fall.

“Year in and year out, our student-athletes and teams prove their dedication to success in all aspects of their college life, but most especially academics,” stated A-10 Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade. “Having 58 of our teams recognized for being in the top 10 percent of the NCAA in APR scores for their sport should be commended. All of the credit goes to the student-athletes and athletic departments in the Atlantic 10 that emphasize a commitment to scholastic success.”

Nearly every Atlantic 10 sport (20 of 21) had at least one team receive public recognition. Women’s tennis had the most teams of any sport on the NCAA list with eight. Three sports had five teams recognized (men’s golf, men’s tennis, and women’s cross country). Volleyball and women’s indoor and outdoor track and field each had four teams represented.

Dayton and George Washington each had nine teams recognized, although two of the nine for each school were in non-A-10 sports and don’t count towards the league’s total of 58. Richmond had eight teams earn the public recognition and Fordham had seven teams. Because the APR totals are based on the previous year’s data, former Atlantic 10 members count towards the conference’s total, however new and incoming members George Mason and Davidson, do not yet count. The two newest members of the A-10 had a combined 17 teams acknowledged by the NCAA.

Each year, the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR).  This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams that 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 each 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.
