UCD athletics dominate BWC classroom honors

For the 12th time under the watchful eye of longtime head coach Bill Maze, the UC Davis women’s tennis team posted a perfect Academic Progress Rate score, as announced by the NCAA on Tuesday.

365体育投注Two other Aggie teams — women’s golf and cross country — posted perfect scores as UCD led the Big West Conference in seven APR rankings, more than any other school among 18 recognized circuit sports programs.

Davis baseball, men’s soccer, men’s track and field and women’s basketball joined the aforementioned trio at the head of the BWC class.

365体育投注The three women’s programs with perfect scores — cross country, golf and tennis — also earned Public Recognition Awards for placing within the top 10 percent of their sports nationally. The UCD number of Public Recognition Awards now stands at 40 from all conference (33 from teams that compete in the Big West).

365体育投注For Maze’s squad, the 12 perfect matriculation showings are the most among any BWC program.

365体育投注This year’s APR report also featured eight UC Davis programs ranking with the second-highest progress rates in various conferences.

Men’s basketball, men’s golf, men’s tennis and women’s soccer are those Big West teams; field hockey (America East Conference); football (Big Sky Conference); and women’s lacrosse and women’s swimming and diving (Mountain Pacific Sports Federation) round out the list. Since joining the Big Sky in 2012, Aggie football recorded one of the league’s top two multi-year APR scores in each year, including the No. 1 result on six occasions.

The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each recruited student-athlete. An APR grades by eligibility, retention rate and graduation to provide a measure of each team’s academic performance.

In this team-based metric, according to UCD Sport Information, scholarship student-athletes earn one point each term for remaining eligible and one point for staying in school or graduating. This year’s APR report features scores based on results from the 2015-16 through 2018-19.
