UCLA Women's Golf and Cross Country Teams Recognized by NCAA

May 12, 2010

The NCAA National Office today recognized the UCLA women's golf and cross country programs, among others across the country, for their stellar multiyear academic performance rates (APR). Both programs boasted an APR of 100%.

"This is really an honor, and I am so pleased that the academic progress and retention of our student-athletes has been recognized," said Carrie Forsyth, UCLA's women's golf coach. "It's an indication that we are doing something right at UCLA, and within our program, that our student-athletes are graduating. I'm very proud."

"It's great to see our student-athletes excel on the course and in the classroom," said women's cross country coach Forest Braden. "They're here to get an education and it's important to know that if you come to UCLA you will graduate. These young ladies are student-athletes in every sense of the word."

During the 2010 Winter Quarter, one-third of the players on the women's golf roster earned spots on the Director's Honor Roll and two runners on the cross country team were named.

Each year the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear APR. This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams who 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 term 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.
