UB women’s tennis recognized by NCAA for academic progress rate

UNIVERSITY AT BUFFALO ATHLETICS

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Mid-American Conference University at Buffalo women's tennis team has received a Public Recognition Award from the NCAA for their efforts in the classroom. 
The Bulls are one of more than 1,200 teams from 312 Division I schools to be recognized for academic excellence after scoring in the top 10 percent of their sport in the most recent Academic Progress Rates.  
Buffalo is one of four Mid-American Conference schools in women's tennis on the list, joining Akron, Ball State, and Toledo.  
The APR is an annual scorecard of academic achievement calculated for all Division I sports teams.  Teams earning Public Recognition Awards increased to 1,284, up by 79 from the previous academic year, largely as a result of an increase in perfect scores. Of the teams recognized, 457 competed in men's or mixed sports, and 827 competed in women's sports. APRs for programs in the top 10 percent ranged from 985 to a perfect 1,000, and the number of teams posting perfect scores increased to 1,188, marking an increase of 98 teams from last year.
The NCAA will release the complete APR scores for all Division I teams on May 23.
