LONG BEACH - The Long Beach State men's cross country and men's volleyball teams have earned Public Recognition Awards based on their most recent multi-year Academic Progress Rates (APR) the NCAA announced Thursday.
These awards are given each year to teams with APRs in the top 10 percent in each sport. The most recent APRs are based on a combination of scores from the 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years.
Each year, the NCAA tracks the classroom performance of student-athletes on every Division I team through the annual scorecard of academic achievement, known as APR. The score measures eligibility and retention each semester or quarter and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.
This is the second year in a row that both the LBSU men's cross country and men's volleyball teams have earned the award.
A total of 954 NCAA Division I sports teams were honored by the NCAA with Public Recognition Awards for the 2010-11 academic year. The list included 560 women's teams and 394 men's or mixed squads. Top performing APRs this year ranged from 978 to a perfect 1,000, with the majority of teams earning a perfect APR.
Full APRs for all Division I sports teams, including the teams receiving public recognition, will be released June 20.
