Bronco Men's Tennis Earns NCAA Division I Academic Performance Program Public Recognition Award

BOISE, Idaho (4/22/09) The National Collegiate Athletic Association announced on Wednesday that the Boise State men’s tennis team is one of only a few national recipients of the NCAA Division I Academic Performance Program (APP) public recognition award.


The NCAA is honoring Division I sports programs with public recognition awards for their success in their latest multiyear NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR). Each of the teams selected for the award are in the top-10 percent of all NCAA Division I teams in their respective sports.


The Bronco men’s tennis program is one of 267 NCAA Division I tennis programs in the country, becoming one of only 27 NCAA Division I men’s tennis teams earning the APP award. The Broncos are also the only men’s team in the Western Athletic Conference to earn the award, and join the Hawaii women’s volleyball team as the only two teams out of the WAC to earn the honor.


Boise State’s men’s tennis team has earned a perfect APR of 1000, meaning in the last four years (Fall 2004 semester through Fall 2008 semester) they have had 100-percent retention, eligibility and graduation rates.


The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. It provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.


This is the first APP award ever earned by any Bronco team.
