ATHENS --- Eight University of Georgia sports teams were among the top three in the Southeastern Conference in the annual NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) released Tuesday.

With a perfect score of 1,000, the men's golf team was tops in the SEC. The Bulldog football team's 976 APR score ranked tied for second best in the SEC, only one point behind league-leading Vanderbilt.

The Academic Progress Rate, now in its sixth year, measures the eligibility, retention and graduation of student-athletes competing on every Division I sports team. It also serves as a predictor of graduation success. The most recent APR scores are multi-year rates based on the scores from the 2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09, and 2009-10 academic years.

NCAA sports falling below the established point cutoff of 925 are subject to penalties including scholarship reductions. UGA will not incur any penalties as all 20 NCAA Bulldog sports were significantly above the cutoff score.

"These scores are indicative of a great deal of effort and hard work by our student-athletes," said UGA Director of Athletics Greg McGarity. "Our coaches and academic counseling staff have done an excellent job of supporting our student-athletes and we'll continue those efforts to keep improving and performing at a high level."

Other Bulldog teams ranking among the SEC's top three include women's basketball (2nd), women's cross country (2nd), women's swimming and diving (2nd), men's indoor track and field (3rd), men's outdoor track and field (3rd), and women's indoor track and field (3rd).

While all Georgia sports were above the established cutoff, 11 actually increased their team scores over last year--baseball, men's basketball, football, men's indoor and outdoor track and field, women's golf, softball, soccer, women's swimming, women's indoor and outdoor track and field.
