Boise State Honored for Academic Performance

Boise State has been shattering school records for athletic performance over the past several years and has seen eight teams ranked in the national Top 25. Now, the Broncos have set yet another mark--this one for academic performance. The Boise State men's tennis team has received a prestigious award from the NCAA recognizing superior academic progress.

The Boise State men's tennis team has received an elite Academic Progress Rate award from the NCAA, becoming the first Bronco team in history to be so honored.  The NCAA selects teams in the top 10 percent of all Division I teams for the national awards.  Coach Greg Patton's team joins the Hawai'i women's volleyball team as the only two teams from the Western Athletic Conference to earn the award.

The Bronco tennis team earned a perfect APR score of 1000, which means that in the last four years, they had 100 percent retention rate, 100% academic eligibility and 100% graduation rates.  The APR is used by the NCAA to measure a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. 

Congratulations to Coach Greg Patton and Boise State for recruiting these excellent student-athletes and to the fine young men's tennis team for achieving the results!
