NCAA Recognizes Tennis For Academic Success
Mean Green Earn APR Score In Top 10 Percent For Third Straight Year
DENTON -- For a third straight year and for the fourth time in seven years, the Mean Green tennis team has an Academic Progress Rate score in the top 10 percent in the nation of all NCAA Division I women tennis programs.
The APR score is an annual scorecard of academic achievement. The APR measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or academic term and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in every sport. The NCAA has used the APR for 13 years.
The most recent APRs are multiyear rates based on scores from the 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years. Programs that were in the top 10 percent, such as North Texas, had scores that ranged from 985 to a perfect 1,000. The Mean Green's exact score will be released on May 23.
UNT was one of four Conference USA tennis programs to be recognized this year for its outstanding APR score.
