BGSU posts its best APR
The Bowling Green State University athletics department posted its best Academic Progress Rate scores in history as released by the NCAA Wednesday. Thirteen of BG's 18 teams posted their best APR score since the rating system began for the 2004-05 season.
All 18 of BG's teams have multi-year APR rates of 933 or above and 10 posted a perfect 1000 single-year rate in the latest report for the 2012-13 year.
All 18 of BG's teams were comfortably above the NCAA's minimum score to receive scholarship limitations or postseason bans.
From a multi-year perspective, all 18 teams scored a 933 or better.
Swimming (996), volleyball (995), women's soccer (993), softball (992) and gymnastics (990) were all at 990 or better, while women's basketball (987), hockey (987) and baseball (985) posted strong scores also.
APR scores are based on retention and eligibility of each scholarship athlete. Each athlete can earn four points per year - one point for first-semester eligibility, one point for first-semester retention, one point for second-semester eligibility, and one point for second-semester retention.
The total points earned are then divided by total points possible and the decimal place is dropped for the APR score.
