Student-Athletes Shine in NCAA Academic Report

22672D_006-1.jpg The NCAA released the latest round of Academic Progress Rates on Wednesday, June 9, and each of SMU’s 16 teams exceeded the NCAA’s APR requirements for the 2008-09 academic year as well as the multi-year average. In addition, four teams – men’s golf, cross country, women’s swimming and women’s tennis – scored perfect 1,000s for the 2008-09 seasons.

This year marks the sixth year of APR data for most teams. The most recent APR scores are based on a multi-year rate that averages scores from the 2005-06, 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09 academic years.

Thirteen of the Mustang programs scored above 950 for the four-year span – men’s basketball (953), men’s soccer (964), men’s tennis (982), women’s basketball (955), women’s cross country (986), rowing (977), women’s golf (991), women’s soccer (956), women’s swimming (984), women’s tennis (969), women’s indoor track (976), women’s outdoor track (976) and volleyball (962) – and two more, football (947) and men’s swimming (948), were on the cusp of that mark.
