INDIANAPOLIS - Seven 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 basketball, women’s cross country, women’s rowing, men’s and women’s tennis, women’s indoor track and field and women’s outdoor track and field were among those NCAA Division I programs honored.

"It is always special when our student-athletes and teams are 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 athletics, academics and other responsibilities with being a college student, and I am so proud of them for their efforts.

“I would also like to thank our academic affairs staff — Colleen Campbell, Adriana Mason and Abbie Day — as well as our coaches and other members of the University community for their support and work with our student-athletes."

Loyola had the most teams honored, for their fourth year in a row, of any of the schools the Greyhounds competed against this year in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Additionally, Loyola’s men’s basketball team was the only one from that sports in the conference so recognized.

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 2008-2009, 2009-2010, 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 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.
