UGA APR Scores Among SEC's Top Five in 11 Sports
UGA APR Numbers Strong

June 20, 2012

ATHENS-- Eleven University of Georgia sports teams were among the top five in the Southeastern Conference in the annual NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) released Thursday. Four Bulldog sports earned the top ranking among SEC schools.

With perfect scores of 1,000, the UGA men's golf and women's gymnastics teams were tops in the SEC. Women's swimming (998) and men's indoor track and field (976) also held the first-place ranking among SEC schools. The Bulldog football team's 970 APR score ranked tied for third best in the SEC, only eight points behind league-leading Vanderbilt's 978.

The Academic Progress Rate, now in its seventh 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 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10, and 2010-11 academic years.

NCAA sports that fall below the established point cutoff of 900 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.

"Our student-athletes are to be congratulated for their effort and hard work in generating these APR scores," said Director of Athletics Greg McGarity. "It's an outstanding example of teamwork among our student-athletes, coaches and Ted White's staff at the Rankin Smith Center. We are very proud of this combined effort of excellence in academics, and we look forward to continued improvement in the future."

Other Bulldog teams ranking among the SEC's top five include men's outdoor track and field (2nd, 965), women's cross country (3rd, 996), men's swimming (5th, 967), women's indoor track and field (5th, 984), soccer (5th, 989), and men's cross country (5th, 967)

While all Georgia sports were well above the established cutoff, 12 actually increased their team scores over last year--baseball, men's basketball, men's swimming and diving, men's tennis, men's indoor track and field, women's golf, gymnastics, soccer, women's swimming and diving, women's indoor track and field, women's outdoor track and field, and volleyball.

Ten Bulldog sports, in fact, recorded their best scores ever in the seven years since the APR was instituted by the NCAA: baseball, men's basketball, women's cross country, men's golf, women's gymnastics, women's indoor track and field, men's indoor track and field, women's soccer, women's swimming and diving, and women's volleyball.
