WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University Athletics Department had 14 teams honored by the NCAA with Public Recognition Awards for high Academic Progress Rate scores. Hoya athletic teams were among a group of more than 950 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, field hockey, men's golf, men's swimming, men's tennis, softball, women's cross country, women's golf, women's lacrosse, women's soccer, women's swimming, women's indoor track & field, women's outdoor track & field and women's volleyball.

This is the third-straight year that Georgetown has had 14 or more teams recognized. Last year, the Hoyas had 15 recognized, the most since the start of the awards. GU had 13 teams recognized in 2009-10 and 12 teams in each of the two prior years (2008-09, 2007-08).

Several Georgetown teams have been recognized in multiple years recently with three teams being recognized in each of the last eight years (field hockey, women's golf and women's swimming). Georgetown was one of only 61 schools nationally to be recognized for having teams that have been recognized in eight-consecutive years.

"Our student-athletes continue to demonstrate a commitment to successfully balancing extraordinary academic achievement with excellence in athletic competition," Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed said. "These results are reflections of the expectations of the faculty and the entire Georgetown University community."

The 976 teams publicly recognized for high achievement represent 594 women's teams and 382 men's or mixed squads. Top performing APRs this year ranged from 978 to a perfect 1,000, with the majority of teams earning a perfect APR.

"The NCAA's quintessential student-athlete exhibits dedication and commitment both on the playing field and in the classroom," said NCAA President Mark Emmert. "These teams and programs truly embody the overall values of the NCAA, and have exceeded standards to post fantastic academic scores. We are delighted by such a clear example of our membership's commitment to providing well-rounded experiences to student-athletes."

In 2012, 954 teams were recognized.

Each year, the NCAA tracks the classroom performance of student-athletes on every Division I team through the annual scorecard of academic achievement, known as APR. The rate measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or quarter and provides a clear picture of the academic performance in each sport. The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-2012 academic years.
