NCAA Honors Five Furman Athletic Teams For High Academic Achievement
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- The NCAA has honored five Furman University athletic teams with public recognition awards for their latest Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores, the organization has announced.
The five Furman teams cited include women's cross country, women's indoor track, women's outdoor track, women's tennis, and volleyball. These teams posted APR scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports.
The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes both retention at an institution and academic eligibility in its calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport. Full APR scores for all Division I sports teams, including penalties for low-performing teams, will be released in the spring.
