Women's Golf Recognized By NCAA|
May 3, 2017
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - 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 has a perfect 1000 multiyear score, placing them in the top 10 percent of all squads in the country. This is the third straight year that women's golf has earned the public recognition award and the eighth time in the last nine years it has had a perfect single-year score.
The Rebel women's golf team won its second consecutive Mountain West Championship in April and is gearing up to compete in its 15th straight NCAA Regional, which starts Monday, May 8, in Lubbock, Texas.
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, May 10. 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 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 academic years.
