Latest APR Report Places Texas Tech In Good Standing

Texas Tech’s emphasis on the education of its student-athletes was acknowledged Thursday as all 17 sports received passing marks on the annual Academic Progress Rate (APR) report that was issued by the NCAA.

“The NCAA annually tracks the classroom performance of student-athletes on every Division I team through an academic assessment scale known as the Academic Performance Rate, or APR,” said NCAA/Big 12 Faculty Representative Brian Shanon.   “The teams being recognized by the NCAA today are in the top 10% nationally in each sport based on multi-year APR rates from the 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10, and 2010-11 academic years.  The student-athletes on these teams clearly fulfill the mission of excelling both athletically and academically.”

All 17 sports at Texas Tech met and exceeded the minimum mark of 925, which is the threshold for teams to attain without facing penalty from the NCAA.

The five sport leader for Texas Tech included women’s tennis, women’s soccer, men’s golf, women’s cross country, women’s basketball and men’s cross country.
