BUFFALO, NY – The NCAA released its Academic Progress Rate (APR) on Wednesday and the University at Buffalo women's tennis team highlighted the report with a perfect four-year APR rate and was recognized with the APR Public Recognition Award by finishing in the top 10 percent in the nation.
The APR is a yearly measure of eligibility and retention for student-athletes competing on every Division I sports team. The APR release encompasses four years of data—07-08, 08-09, 09-10, and 10-11. It is a four-year rolling rate.
Four teams (men's cross country, rowing, women's tennis and volleyball) had perfect single season APR scores, 1000, in 2010-11.
17 of UB's 20 teams had four-year APR scores above 950 and nine teams were above 975.
14 of Buffalo's 20 intercollegiate programs had overall APR scores that improved or stayed the same from 2009-10 – 2010-11.
No UB team will suffer a penalty resulting from an insufficient score.
