Utah set a school record for APR success in 2012-13
June 11, 2013
INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA announced its multi-year Academic Performance Report (APR) for NCAA Division I schools today and the University of Utah set a school record for APR success.
The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation of all student-athletes on scholarship, and provides a measure of each team’s academic performance.
The latest multi-year APR calculations include scores from 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12, and the average for Utah’s teams was 981—bettering its previous record of 978 set last year and easily exceeding the NCAA minimum requirement of 925 (930 to be eligible for postseason competition).
Utah’s women’s gymnastics team was recognized by the NCAA for a multi-year APR that ranks in the top 10-percent of all Division I gymnastics teams. The gymnasts earned a perfect 1000 multi-year APR to tie for first in the Pac-12 with Arizona and California. Women’s cross country (994) tied for second in the Pac-12, while football (963) ranked third.
The gymnastics team was one of six Utah sports to achieve a perfect 1000 APR in 2011-12. The others were men’s golf, men’s swimming, men’s tennis, women’s cross country and women’s tennis.
Ten Utah teams saw increases in their multi-year scores from a year ago: men’s skiing (+22), women’s skiing (+11) women’s indoor and outdoor track (+7), volleyball (+6), baseball (+6), men’s basketball (+5), gymnastics (+5), men’s swimming (+3) and cross-country (+1).
