PRESS RELEASE FROM LOUISVILLE SID KENNY KLEIN:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Nine University of Louisville athletic teams posted a perfect score in the most recent single-year Academic Progress Rate (APR) data released by the NCAA.
The nine UofL sports — including five women’s and four men’s — with a perfect 1000 APR score for the most recent 2012-13 figures include men’s basketball, football, men’s golf, women’s golf, women’s lacrosse, softball, women’s soccer, men’s tennis and volleyball.
UofL’s men’s basketball and women’s golf teams are among the top 10 percent in their respective sports in the latest multiyear APR, which measures academic eligibility, retention and graduation for student-athletes. Both sports have a perfect 1000 score for the four-year period from 2009-13 and received public recognition from the NCAA last week.
