IRVINE, Calif. - Posting scores in the top 10 percent of their sport based on their most recent multi-year Academic Progress Rates, nine Big West sports teams earned Public Recognition Awards for exceptional academic achievement, the NCAA announced Wednesday.
The scores required to be in the top ten ranged from 980 to a perfect 1,000, depending on the sport, with the majority of top 10 teams earning a perfect APR. The most recent APRs are rates based on scores from the 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years.
Cal Poly had three squads recognized, while Cal State Northridge, Long Beach State, UC Davis, UC Irvine, UC Riverside and former Big West member Pacific had one apiece.
Since the inception of the Public Recognition Awards with the 2004-05 academic year, 64 Big West sports teams have been honored.
The 1,049 teams publicly recognized for high achievement represent 631 women's teams and 418 men's or mixed squads. In 2013, 976 teams were recognized. The APR measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or quarter and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in each sport.
The APR is an annual scorecard of academic achievement calculated for all Division I sports teams nationally. Teams must meet a certain academic threshold to qualify for the postseason, and they also can face penalties for continued low academic performance.
APRs for all Division I teams will be released May 14.
