EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE student athletes fared well according to the most recent Academic Progress Rate (APR) report released Tuesday by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 academic years.
Four programs (men’s cross country, women’s soccer, softball, and women’s tennis) recorded a perfect 1000 in multiyear APR scores. Those four programs were honored with Public Recognition Awards, announced last Tuesday by the NCAA, for scoring among the top 10 percent in their sports.
Eight SIUE programs (baseball, men’s cross country, men’s tennis, softball, women’s basketball (tied), women’s soccer (tied), and women’s tennis) led the Ohio Valley Conference in their respective sports, which was more than any other OVC program. Wrestling ranked second in the Southern Conference.
A total of 15 SIUE programs outperformed the national average of NCAA Division I schools in their respective sports.
