Aggies’ APR score leads league in seven sports

Led by the women’s tennis team which posted a perfect 1000 mulit-year Academic Progress Rate and was honored with an NCAA Public Recognition Award last week, seven UC Davis squads — including football and men’s basketball — posted the highest APR scores in their respective conferences, according to information released by the NCAA this week.

A combination of athlete retention and eligibility, APR calculations help measure classroom performance of all student-athletes. A score of 930 is the benchmark for teams to avoid penalties from the NCAA. Of the 23 Aggie teams, 14 had APRs of at least 980 and 19 were above 970.

“We’re very proud of how our student-athletes perform with their teams, but we’re especially proud of how hard they work in the classroom,” said UCD athletic director Terry Tumey. “Combined with our recent NCAA Graduation Success Rate, which was highest in the Big West, our student-athletes are representing UC Davis very well.”

In addition to football (972), which led the Big Sky Conference for the second year in a row, and men’s basketball (974), which had the best APR in the Big West, women’s water polo (993), men’s soccer (984) and women’s gymnastics (997) each finished ahead of any team in their league. The water polo and soccer squads compete in the Big West, while gymnastics is in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation.

Additionally, UCD women’s tennis — which has posted a perfect score in all seven years it has been measured — and women’s volleyball (989) both tied for highest APR in the Big West.

Aggie women’s basketball (988) and baseball (973) each took second in the Big West while women’s soccer (991), softball (985) and women’s outdoor track and field (985) all were third in the league. UCD field hockey (991) was third in the NorPac Conference, a finish matched by men’s water polo (978) was third-best in its Western Water Polo Association.

These most recent APRs are multi-year rates covering the 2009-10 through 2012-13 academic years.
