Loyola Teams Earn NCAA Recognition For Academic Success


May 17, 2011

INDIANAPOLIS - For the second consecutive year, Loyola University Maryland had more teams recognized for multi-year success in the most recent Academic Progress Program report by the NCAA than any of its Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference peers, the national governing body announced today.

Eight Greyhounds teams - men's cross country, men's and women's swimming and diving, men's and women's tennis, women's crew, women's indoor track and field and women's outdoor track and field - all were in the top 10 percentile of NCAA schools in the multi-year tracking of the APP.

"This is a recognition of our student-athletes' hard work and the support by our academic professionals, coaches and the University community," Assistant Vice President and Director of Athletics Jim Paquette said. "I am proud of our student-athletes who continue to excel in the classroom and in competition. Loyola University Maryland is committed to achieving excellence in both areas."

All eight teams continued to earn perfect scores of 1,000 in the multi-year rate category that was released publically by the NCAA. No other MAAC school had more than five teams honored by the NCAA, and only one (Siena College) had more than three.

Each year, the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear NCAA Division I Academic Progress Program (APP). This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams that demonstrate a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APPs within their respective sports.

The APP provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship. The APP accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team's academic performance.

The complete APP for all sports will be released next Tuesday on NCAA.org.
