Ten Bronco Teams Post Perfect Single-Year APR Scores

May 27, 2015 BOISE, Idaho - Ten Boise State athletic teams posted perfect single-year Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores for the 2013-14 academic year, up from nine in 2012-13, the NCAA announced Wednesday.

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, providing a measure of each team's academic performance.

Boise State's men's basketball, women's cross country, men's golf, women's golf, gymnastics, swimming & diving, men's tennis, women's tennis, women's track and field (outdoor) and wrestling programs recorded perfect single-year scores of 1,000 during 2013-14.

For women's golf, the perfect score is the fourth straight, while it is the third-straight perfect score for both men's and women's tennis.

Volleyball, women's golf and women's tennis each recorded perfect multi-year APR scores, tying for first nationally amongst their respective sports and leading the Mountain West.

The Boise State football team, which recorded a single-year APR score of 973, ranked tied for 10th nationally amongst Football Bowl Subdivision schools with a multi-year APR of 981. The football team has ranked in the top-10 nationally in each of the last five releases of the multi-year APR.

Football ranked second in the Mountain West, as did swimming & diving, while wrestling ranked second in the Pac-12 Conference.

Eight programs set team records for multi-year APR scores, including women's basketball (974), women's golf (1,000), soccer (996), softball (987), swimming & diving (995), women's tennis (1,000), volleyball (1,000) and wrestling (969).

As a department, Boise State earned an overall score of 976, meaning the school earned 97.6 percent of possible points over the last four years. That number is up from 974 in last year's APR release.

The NCAA announced last week that the Broncos' football, women's golf, women's tennis and volleyball teams each earned Public Recognition Awards for having multi-year APR scores in the top-10 percent of their respective sports nationally.

The football program is one of only five in the country to receive a Public Recognition Award in each of the last five years, a list that also includes Clemson, Duke, Northwestern and Rutgers. Women's golf has received the award each of the last two years.
