INDIANAPOLIS — The Sacramento State men's cross country team received the NCAA Public Recognition Award after recording perfect 1,000 scores in the latest APR rankings.
To earn the Public Recognition Award, a team must rank among the top 10 percent of institutions in its sport. This year's honorees were based on scores recorded during the 2014-15 academic year.
The team earned the award for the fifth consecutive year and the sixth time overall. Sacramento State has had 17 teams honored by the NCAA since the start of the APR in 2004-05. At least one Hornet team has received a Public Recognition Award each of the last eight years.
Each year, the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear 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.
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 and provides a measure of each team's academic performance.
