FORT WORTH, Texas - Based on their most recent multi-year Academic Progress Rates, the TCU men's cross country and women's tennis teams have earned NCAA Public Recognition Awards. These awards are given each year to teams scoring in the top 10 percent in each sport with their APRs.

The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester or quarter by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes eligibility, retention, and graduation in the calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.

“Most Division I student-athletes and teams take seriously their dual responsibilities in the classroom and on the court or field of play, but every year there is a special category of teams that perform exceptionally well and deserve this noteworthy recognition,” NCAA Interim President Jim Isch said.

High-performing teams receiving public recognition awards this year posted APR scores ranging from 978 to a perfect 1,000. The 841 teams publicly recognized this year for high achievement represent 13.4 percent of the 6,297 eligible Division I teams. The list includes 492 women’s teams and 349 men’s or mixed squads. A total of 228 of the 331 Division I colleges and universities placed at least one team on the top APR list.
