Tech Matches School Record with Five NCAA Public Recognition Awards

The Bryant men's and women's cross country, men's and women's track & field, golf, women's soccer and volleyball programs earned the awards for having an April score in the top 10 percent of their respective sports.

Baseball, men's cross country, women's golf, men's hockey, women's and men's tennis, and women's swimming and diving all extended streaks for picking up April awards.

April scores for all Division I teams will be released May 23.

Villanova is one of just four Division I schools to have 18 or more teams recognized in Wednesday's announcement and is the only school to have over 80 percent of its programs earn a public recognition award.

Public Recognition Awards get handed out based on a sport's multi-year Academic Progress Rate, better known as the "APR".

Three programs were honored for the second consecutive year, and beach volleyball earned the program's first recognition. APRs for programs in the top 10 percent ranged from 985 to a ideal 1,000.

The women's tennis program has been honored 10 consecutive times, while the men's tennis program was recognized for the fifth time and fourth consecutive.

WHO has therefore revised the assessment of public health risk to very high at the national level and high at the regional level. A total of 44 cases of hemorrhagic fever have now been reported, including 23 deaths, according to the health ministry.

The Academic Progress Rate was created by the NCAA in 2004 in an effort to more accurately measure student-athletes' progress and improve graduation rates.

Additionally, this is the second-straight season that the Ole Miss men's golf team has been bestowed with the public recognition honor.

The NCAA honors selected NCAA Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate every spring.

All Division I programs' April scores will be released publicly on May 23.

The latest April scores cover a four-year period from 2013-14 to 2016-17. Programs who do not meet the 930 threshold to qualify for the postseason and can face penalties for extended periods of poor academic performance.
