Herd tennis scholars honored
HUNTINGTON — Marshall University women’s tennis was recognized for its classroom performance.
Each year, the NCAA tracks the classroom performance of student-athletes on every Division I team through the annual scorecard of academic achievement, known as APR. The rate measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or quarter and provides a clear picture of the academic performance in each sport.
The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-2012 academic years.
Conference USA had 28 teams honored.
"We are pleased to see our academic progress rates continue to rise," C-USA commissioner Britton Banowsky said. "The academic achievements of our student-athletes are paramount to their success after they leave their respective institutions."
Full APRs will be released by the NCAA on Tuesday.
