Four Virginia Tech teams receive NCAA Public Recognition Award

Seven Bryant teams earn Public Recognition Awards from NCAA

One year after eight Rutgers teams were cited by the NCAA for being among the top 10 percent nationally in multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR), Rutgers achieved that same record-total Wednesday when the college athletics governing body released its list of teams recognized for academic excellence after scoring in the top 10 percent of their sports in the most recent Academic Progress Rate (APR). Last week, the women's golf team won the NCAA Austin Regional and advanced to the NCAA Men's and Women's Golf Championships to be held in Stillwater, Oklahoma, May 18-23.

"We're very proud that four of our programs received the Public Recognition Award from the NCAA", Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Lisa Campos said.

Georgia Tech women's cross country, golf, men's tennis, women's track & field and volleyball all earned the honor for the four-year period ending in 2016-17.

GW's women's cross country, golf, men's soccer, softball, men's tennis, men's and women's track and women's water polo teams were honored. Teams earning Public Recognition Awards increased to 1,284, up by 79 from the previous academic year, largely as a result of an increase in ideal scores. "This honor is a credit to the dedication of our student-athletes, coaches and support staff".

Christina Aguilera & Demi Lovato's Powerhouse Duet "Fall In Line"
Now, on Wednesday (May 16), the pop superstar has released her long-awaited duet with Demi Lovato , " Fall In Line ". The pair will perform the song live for the first time at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on May 20.


Women's tennis leads all Nittany Lion squads with 12 NCAA Public Recognition Awards. The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship. The APR includes eligibility, retention and graduation in the calculation, and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport. The APR is an annual scorecard of academic achievement calculated for all Division I sports teams nationally.

The University of Arkansas has earned a public recognition award in 12 of the 13 years since the program was initiated.

More troubling is that schools like North Carolina, which endured a lengthy scandal while enrolling athletes in sub-standard classes in order to keep them eligible, turned in excellent April scores while that behavior was occurring. The women's golf program has also been exceptional on the course winning a school-record seven tournaments in 2017-18.

All Division I teams' April scores will be released May 23.
