LA Tech Golf Earns NCAA Public Recognition Award

June 5, 2013

RUSTON - The Louisiana Tech men's golf team received an NCAA Public Recognition Award Wednesday for its success in the classroom as part of the NCAA's Academic Performance Program.

This marks the third consecutive year that head coach Jeff Parks' golf team has earned the recognition for its academic work.

"This is a tribute to the hard work and dedication that our young men put forth every day in pursuing their degrees," Parks said. "I'm proud of them. It is not always about what you do on the golf course. It is a high priority for our program to focus on academics as well as our golf performance. These guys represent our University and out athletic department in a first class manner."

Each year the NCAA honors selected sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR). This announcement is part of the overall NCAA 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. Specifically, these teams posted multiyear APRs in the top 10 percent of all squads in each sport.

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.

The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 academic years.
