School Record Six Friar Programs Earn NCAA APR Public Recognition Awards
May 7, 2014
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
A school record six Providence College athletic teams received Public Recognition Awards today (May 7) as part of the NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) program.
The six Friar squads to earn the honor were the men's swimming and diving team, the women’s cross country team, the women’s swimming and diving team, the women’s indoor track team, the women’s outdoor track team and the volleyball team.
The six teams were honored for finishing in the top-10 percent of their respective sports in the latest multi-year APR scores (2009-10 through 2012-13). The Friars have now had multiple teams honored in all nine years that the NCAA has given out the Public Recognition Awards.
APR scores for all Division I teams will be released May 14. The APR is an annual scorecard of academic achievement calculated for all Division I sports teams nationally. The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-2012 and 2012-13 academic years.
