NCAA recognizes 3 varsity sports teams in annual Academic Progress Rate report

Three UGA varsity sports teams have been publicly recognized by the NCAA for outstanding achievement in the annual NCAA Academic Progress Rate report.

The recognition honors teams that scored in the top 10 percent of all teams across the country in each sport. Both the gymnastics and women’s swimming and diving teams scored a perfect 1000, and men’s basketball earned a score of 990.

“We are committed to the academic mission of the Athletic Association as well as our athletic mission,” said Greg McGarity, UGA’s J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics. “It’s always a point of pride when any of our teams are cited for academic achievement and congratulations are in order for these three teams.”

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 accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team’s academic performance.
