Menís cross country, womenís tennis teams post perfect NCAA APR scores (1320 hits)

Jackson State Universityís Division of Athletics continues to make strides academically, receiving recognition from the NCAA for perfect APR (Academic Progress Rates) scores in menís cross country and womenís tennis.

According to the most recent NCAA APR report released in April, 16 JSU sports teams met or exceeded NCAA standards.

For the fourth straight year JSU had no teams placed in the NCAA penalty structure and all Tigers teams are eligible for post-season play. To compete in the 2016-17 postseason, teams must achieve either a 930 multi-year APR score or an average of 940 over the most recent two years.

Jackson State is one of only two teams in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) to have two teams receive NCAA public recognition for perfect APR scores of 1000. The Tigers are also only one of two teams in the state of Mississippi to have multiple sport teams to post perfect APR scores.
