Women's Tennis Recognized for Work in the Classroom

Friday, June 04, 2010

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (June 4, 2010) - The ETSU women's tennis team has been recognized this year for their exceptional work in the classroom for 2009-10 as part of the NCAA's academic performance program, the NCAA recently announced.

 

"The NCAA's recognition of ETSU women's tennis student-athletes for their academics and team APR score is a tremendous honor," said ETSU Assistant Athletic Director of Academic Services, Bob Baker. "These young ladies embody the term scholar-athlete and deserve 100% of the credit for being recognized as one of 800 nationwide programs to receive this public recognition."

Based on their most recent multi-year Academic Progress Rates, 841 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. 

ETSU was one of only five schools in the Atlantic Sun Conference to have a team receive recognition in the NCAA academic performance program.

"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," said NCAA Interim President Jim Isch.

The APR provides a real-time view of a team's academic success by tracking the progress of each student-athlete during the school year. By measuring eligibility and retention each semester or quarter, the APR provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.
