Four UTSA Athletics programs recognized for academic excellence

Four Virginia Tech teams receive NCAA Public Recognition Award

This continues a trend in which GW Athletics has seen at least six teams earn APR Public Recognition Awards in each of the last seven years.

The NCAA announced Division I Academic Progress Rates (APR) Public Recognition Awards today, recognizing teams across the country that finished with an APR in the top 10 percent in their sport. The Chippewas have earned a spot in the top 10 in each of the four seasons since the program's resurrection in fall, 2014.

The APR measures eligibility, graduation and retention.

Teams earning Public Recognition Awards increased to 1,284, up by 79 from the previous academic year, largely as a result of an increase in ideal scores.

The women's tennis program has been honored 10 consecutive times, while the men's tennis program was recognized for the fifth time and fourth consecutive.

The latest data which was revealed on Wednesday spanned the 2013-14 through 2016-17 academic years and showed a number of different areas in which Villanova ranks at or near the top of all Division I programs for the continued academic success of its student-athletes.

Circle raises $110 million (or 13300 BTC)
Circle further noted that "Bitmain will help CENTRE introduce multiple fiat stablecoins in a variety of geo-currency zones". The new cryptocurrency is all set to give a ferocious competition to the rival traditional currency backed virtual coins.

Gonzaga made another final four, this one for its student-athletes' academic prowess.

The UNC men's cross country team, women's fencing, men's golf, gymnastics, women's lacrosse, men's soccer, men's tennis, women's tennis, and volleyball were also recognized. The field hockey team, led by coach Char Morett, has received an NCAA Public Recognition Award nine times.

Penn State, No. 2 in the 2018 final Winter Learfield Directors' Cup standings, has one of the nation's most comprehensive and successful athletic programs, featuring 800 student-athletes across 31 varsity programs (16 men's, 15 women's).

The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester or quarter by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. One point is for being academically eligible at the end of a semester, and the other is for returning to school or graduating at the start of the next semester.

Each year, the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear NCAA Division I April. The Nittany Lions have won 107 Big Ten championships or tournament titles since capturing their first crown in 1992-93, including conference titles in women's soccer, women's volleyball and wrestling in 2017-18.
