NCAA APR Public Recognition Awards Release

NCAA APR Public Recognition Awards Release The NCAA released the Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR) Public Recognition Awards Wednesday, which based on the most recent multiyear scores recognize the nation's top 10 percent in their respective sports.

UNLV's women's golf and women's volleyball both have perfect 1000 multiyear scores, placing them in the top 10 percent of all squads in the country.

This is the fourth straight year that women's golf has earned the public recognition award and the ninth time in the last 10 years it boasted a perfect single-year score. The Rebels completed their season last week by finishing in ninth place at what was their 16th straight NCAA Regional appearance. Head coach Amy Bush-Herzer's squad won its third consecutive Mountain West title last month to claim its fourth team title of the season.

The Rebel volleyball team, which welcomed new head coach Dawn Sullivan during the off-season, earned the NCAA top 10 percent distinction for the second time but first time since the 2007-08 season.

The APR is an annual scorecard for eligibility and retention calculated for all Division I sports teams nationally. All Division I teams' APR scores will be released next Wednesday. All teams must meet a certain academic threshold to qualify for the postseason and can face penalties for continued low academic performance.

The APR measures eligibility, graduation and retention each term and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in every sport. The most recent APRs are multiyear rates based on scores from the 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years.
