Seven Teams Earn NCAA Public Recognition Awards

Four Virginia Tech teams receive NCAA Public Recognition Award

The Virginia Tech women's tennis, women's golf, women's track and field, and baseball teams received Public Recognition Awards from the NCAA for top scores in the classroom, as announced by the NCAA on Wednesday. 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 each term and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in each sport. Swimming and diving was one of five programs, a school record, recognized in 2011-12 joining men's golf, men's tennis, gymnastics and volleyball.

Teams that fail to reach a four-year average April score of 930, which is the equivalent of a 50 percent graduation rate, or a 940 average for the most recent two years, can be penalized.

The University of CT men's basketball, women's cross country, field hockey, men's golf, men's hockey, men's tennis and women's tennis teams were honored on Wednesday with NCAA Public Recognition Awards for outstanding academic performance. I would also like to thank the Morgan Academic Center staff for their efforts in supporting our student-athletes.

UTSA's men's golf and volleyball programs are repeat winners, while this is the second overall Public Recognition Award for the women's golf program. This year marks the first year in which the baseball program has been honored with a Public Recognition Award.

The NCAA's April is created to track the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship at a particular institution. The field hockey team, led by coach Char Morett, has received an NCAA Public Recognition Award nine times. This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is meant to highlight teams that demonstrate a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APRs within their respective sports.

Each student receiving athletically related financial aid earns one point for staying in school and one point for remaining eligible.

Villanova is one of just four Division I schools to have 18 or more teams recognized in Wednesday's announcement and is the only school to have over 80 percent of its programs earn a public recognition award. 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.
