Tennis Program Earns NCAA Public Recognition Award



June 6, 2013

MILWAUKEE - The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's women's tennis team has earned a Public Recognition Award from the NCAA for having a multi-year Academic Performance Rate (APR) score in the top 10 percent of the sport.

This is the second-straight year the program has been honored. Its current multi-year APR is a perfect 1,000.

The squad has consistently performed at a high level academically. The team currently has an impressive 3.32 cumulative grade-point average after posting a 3.38 mark in the spring semester. Plus, three players on the nine-person squad have cumulative GPA's of 3.8 or better.

Each year, the NCAA tracks the classroom performance of student-athletes on every Division I team through the annual scorecard of academic achievement, known as APR. The rate measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or quarter and provides a clear picture of the academic performance in each sport. The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-2012 academic years.

A total of 976 teams nationally earned the NCAA Public Recognition Award with 594 women's teams and 382 men's or mixed squads. Out of 346 Division I programs, a total of 268 schools placed at least one team on the APR list.
