GREENVILLE, S.C. -- The NCAA has honored two Furman University athletic teams with public recognition awards for their latest Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores, the organization has announced.

The three Paladin teams cited, men's and women's cross country and women's tennis, posted APR scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports for the past four years.

A total of 39 Southern Conference teams received awards this year representing nine league institutions. 

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 later this spring.
