Kansas women’s cross country receives NCAA Public Recognition Award; six teams notch perfect single-year APR scores
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas women’s cross country team received a Public Recognition Award from the NCAA for top scores in the classroom, and six Jayhawk teams notched perfect 1,000 single-year APR scores.
The women’s cross country team earned recognition for having a perfect multi-year Academic Progress Rate, which is based on scores from the immediate past four academic years (2013-14 through 2016-17).
The APR is an annual scorecard of academic achievement calculated for all Division I sports teams nationally. It measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or quarter and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in each sport.
Men’s cross country, men’s golf, women’s golf, swimming & diving and volleyball joined women’s cross country with perfect single-year APR scores for the 2016-17 academic year.
Volleyball’s score of 1,000 marks the seventh time in eight years the team has had a perfect APR score.
In order to remain in good standing, teams must achieve either a 930 multi-year APR or a 940 average over the most recent two years – criteria every Kansas program exceeded.
