WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University Athletics Department had 13 teams honored by the NCAA with Public Recognition Awards for high Academic Progress Rate scores on Wednesday. Hoya athletic teams were among a group of nearly 800 Division I sports teams honored for their multi-year APR scores, which are given each year to teams scoring in the top 10 percent in each sport.

Georgetown teams publicly recognized by the NCAA included baseball, men's cross country, field hockey, women's golf, softball, men's swimming & diving, women's swimming & diving, men's tennis, women's tennis, men's indoor track & field, men's outdoor track & field, women's indoor track & field and women's outdoor track & field.

Georgetown has had 12 teams publicly recognized in each of the last two years. Last year, eight of those programs recorded perfect APR scores of 1,000 - field hockey, men's golf, women's golf, women's rowing, women's swimming & driving, women's tennis, men's indoor track & field and men's outdoor track & field. Other Hoya teams recognized last year included men's soccer, women's soccer, women's indoor track & field and women's outdoor track & field, each of whom were acknowledged for posting multi-year APR scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports.

Georgetown was second among all BIG EAST schools with 13 teams recognized, surpassed only by Notre Dame, who led the league with 14 teams.

Based on their most recent multi-year Academic Progress Rates, 841 teams have earned NCAA Public Recognition Awards, up from 767 teams last year. The awards are given annually to teams scoring in the top 10 percent in each sport with their APRs. The lists of recognized teams are available by sport, by institution and through a searchable database.

Full APR scores for all Division I sports teams, including penalties for low-performing teams, will be released later this spring.

High-performing teams receiving public recognition awards this year posted APR scores ranging from 978 to a perfect 1,000. The number of teams in some sports may exceed 10 percent depending on how many achieved perfect scores. The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2005-06, 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09 academic years.

As APR scores improve, the threshold for teams to earn a place in the top 10 percent in their sport continues to rise.

"Most Division I student-athletes and teams take seriously their dual responsibilities in the classroom and on the court or field of play, but every year there is a special category of teams that perform exceptionally well and deserve this noteworthy recognition," NCAA Interim President Jim Isch said.

The 841 teams publicly recognized this year for high achievement represent 13.4 percent of the 6,297 eligible Division I teams. The list includes 492 women's teams and 349 men's or mixed squads. A total of 228 of the 331 Division I colleges and universities placed at least one team on the top APR list. Another six of the 50 schools that offer athletics in more than one division placed Division I teams on the list.

In the five years of the NCAA's academic reform program, 1,747 teams have received Public Recognition Awards, representing 27.7 percent of eligible sports teams during that time. Of that total, 319 teams have received Public Recognition Awards each of the five years of the program.
