May 20, 2015

INDIANAPOLIS - Eight Loyola University Maryland athletic teams were recognized Wednesday by the NCAA for being in the top-10 percent of their respective sports in the most recent multi-year tracking of the Academic Progress Rate (APR).

The Loyola men's soccer, men's tennis, women's cross country, women's lacrosse, women's rowing, women's tennis, women's indoor track and field and women's outdoor track and field were among those NCAA Division I programs honored.

"We are thrilled that our student-athletes and teams are being recognized for their achievements in the classroom," said Jim Paquette, Loyola's Assistant Vice President and Director of Athletics. "Throughout the academic year, they do tremendous jobs balancing the rigors of academics, athletics, community service and the myriad of responsibilities associated with being a college student, and I am so proud of them for their efforts.

"I would also like to recognize our Student-Athlete Support Services staff -- Colleen Campbell, Adriana Mason and Abbie Day -- as well as our coaches and other members of the University community for the significant role they play in our student-athletes academic success."

Each year the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multi-year NCAA Division I APR.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 APRs within their respective sports.

Specifically, these teams posted multi-year APRs in the top-10 percent of all squads in each sport.The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2010-2011, 2011-2012, 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 academic years.

The APR 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 APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team's academic performance.
