Tennis Recognized for Perfect Academic Progress Rate|
May 7, 2014
CINCINNATI - For the fourth consecutive year, a University of Cincinnati athletic program has been recognized by the NCAA for producing an Academic Progress Rate (APR) among the top-10 percent in the nation. Head coach Angela Wilson's women's tennis team is among the nation's top-10 percent with a perfect multi-year APR of 1,000.
The multi-year rate of 1,000 is calculated based on the four academic years from the fall of 2009 through spring of 2013. Women's tennis joins the men's basketball team (2011) and the women's cross country team (2012-13) as programs which have been honored for placing in the top 10-percent nationally.
"I'm very, very proud of the multi-year rate for the women's tennis team," said Wilson. "These student-athletes have always had one of the top grade-point averages among all sports, maintained their eligibility and graduated with great degrees from the Hottest College in America!"
The APR is a team-based metric reported to the NCAA by member institutions to account for eligibility and retention of each student-athlete, each term. Teams must reach a minimum multi-year APR to continue to be eligible for postseason play. Complete data for the athletic department will be released in conjunction with the NCAA next Wednesday, May 14.
