Tech Matches School Record with Five NCAA Public Recognition Awards

Four Virginia Tech teams receive NCAA Public Recognition Award

The NCAA is announcing multiyear April scores for all Division I teams, including those earning public recognition awards, on May 23.

Based on their most recent multiyear Academic Progress Rate, these teams have earned NCAA Public Recognition Awards for posting scores in the top 10 percent of their sport. The Chippewas have earned a spot in the top 10 in each of the four seasons since the program's resurrection in fall, 2014.

Teams earning Public Recognition Awards increased to 1,284, up by 79 from the previous academic year, largely as a result of an increase in flawless scores. The award recognizes teams with APRs in the top 10 percent nationally in each sport.

The programs earned a flawless 1,000 multiyear April rate based on scores from the 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years. "Their support is vital to student success". This year marks the second straight in which the women's tennis program finished with an April above 1,000 and received a Public Recognition Award.

The five teams - women's fencing, men's golf, women's tennis, women's volleyball and wrestling - earned multi-year April scores in the top 10 percent nationally for their respective sport through the 2016-17 academic year (data from 2013-14 through 2016-17). The Nittany Lions have had at least three squads earn NCAA Public Recognition Awards in all 13 years of the program. "I commend these student-athletes for their full dedication to both their academics and their team".

The University of Arkansas has earned a public recognition award in 12 of the 13 years since the program was initiated.

The APR is a measure to track a student-athlete's chances of graduating.

Penn State, No. 2 in the 2018 final Winter Learfield Directors' Cup standings, has one of the nation's most comprehensive and successful athletic programs, featuring 800 student-athletes across 31 varsity programs (16 men's, 15 women's).

More troubling is that schools like North Carolina, which endured a lengthy scandal while enrolling athletes in sub-standard classes in order to keep them eligible, turned in excellent April scores while that behavior was occurring.

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. The women's golf program has also been exceptional on the course winning a school-record seven tournaments in 2017-18.
