The Utah cross country team turned in the second-highest multi-year APR among the Pac-12's women's cross country squads.
June 20, 2012
INDIANAPOLIS - The NCAA announced its annual and multi-year Academic Performance Report (APR) for NCAA Division I schools today and the University of Utah cross country team achieved a multi-year score of 993, which was the second-highest among women's cross country teams in the Pac-12 Conference.
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.
