May 21, 2015

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The Wake Forest men's soccer and women's golf teams received honors from the National Collegiate Athletic Association on Wednesday with public recognition awards for their latest Academic Progress Rate scores.

The Academic Progress Rate (APR), a multi-year rate based on the most recent four years of data, is a real-time measure of eligibility and retention of student-athletes competing on every Division I sports team. The most recent APR scores are based on scores from the 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 academic years. This year marks the 11th year of APR data for most teams.

The men's soccer team was joined by Duke and Notre Dame as one of three in the Atlantic Coast Conference to be honored and one of four Division I schools in the state of North Carolina for its sport. The Deacons were also one of 24 total Division I men's soccer teams honors in the NCAA. It is now the third consecutive year that the Wake Forest men's soccer team has been honored.

It was the seventh straight year that the women's golf team has been honored. The Deacons were one of 10 schools from the ACC and one of eight in the state of North Carolina to receive the accolade for women's golf programs.

Each year, the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multi-year NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR). This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams that demonstrate a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APRs within their respective sports. Specifically, these teams posted multi-year APRs in the top 10 percent of all squads in each sport.

The ACC leads all Power 5 conferences with 82 teams among its current membership recognized in the latest report card on the NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) Public Recognition Awards and was ranked third in the country among conferences only behind the Ivy League and Patriot League.
