USD men’s golf receives NCAA academic honor

VERMILLION, S.D. (KWSN)– For the third straight year,the South Dakota men’s golf team has earned the NCAA Public Recognition Award, which is given to teams in the top-10 percent of the NCAA’s most recent multiyear Academic Progress Report (APR). This year’s award was based on figures from the 2011-12 academic year.

The APR looks at each team’s academic success by tracking the progress of each student-athlete scholarship. It takes into account eligibility, retention and graduation, and measures each team’s academic performance.

Based on a 1,000 point scale, men’s golf had the highest rating with a mark of 1,000. Overall, 12 of USD’s 17 programs scored more than 975. 

Since the Division I transition, USD teams have earned seven Public Recognition Awards.
