UTEP football, basketball improve multi-year APR ratings

New, 2 comments

The NCAA released the 2014-15 APR ratings, and as a whole, UTEP Athletics did a great job.

UTEP football, and UTEP men's and women's basketball improved their multi-year Academic Progress Rate released by the NCAA today, with no sport across the athletic landscape facing any sanctions due to unacceptable scores.

Sean Kugler and the football program posted a 973 for 2014-15 and improved from a 954 for the 2013-14 multi-year report.

The El Paso Times reported last October that UTEP football scored a perfect 1,000, meaning every player in the program is on track to graduate for 2015-16.

UTEP basketball scored a 968 in the current report, improving from a 956 in 2013-14.

UTEP women's basketball improved their score to a 983, scoring a 975 in 2013-14.

Not only has the UTEP women's track and field program excelled in racking up championships in athletics, they scored a perfect 1,000 on their scores ranking inside the top-10 percent of all programs in the country.

The APR is an annual scorecard of academic achievement calculated for all Division I sports teams nationally. The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic progress success semester by semester over the last four years. The APR includes eligibility, retention and graduation in the process and provides a great guide to a program's academic success.
