INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA announced its annual and multi-year Academic Performance Report (APR) for NCAA Division I schools today and the University of Utah men's ski team achieved a perfect annual score of 1,000 during the 2010-11 academic year.
Joining men's skiing with a perfect 1,000 APR in 2010-11 were the men's tennis, women's basketball and gymnastics teams.
Department-wide, the University of Utah earned its highest grade yet. The APR is designed to provide a real-time measure of eligibility, retention and graduation of all Division I student-athletes.
Under APR guidelines, a player who transfers from an institution in good academic standing does not negatively impact the APR of either the former or the new school.
The multi-year average for Utah's teams rose to 978--up from its previous record score of 976 set last year and a performance that easily exceeds the NCAA minimum requirement of 925 and the new 930 benchmark to be eligible for postseason competition. The latest multi-year APR calculations include scores from 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11.
