ATHENS, Ohio - The Ohio University softball program earned an NCAA Public Recognition Award for finishing in the top 10 percent of all Division I softball squads in the Academic Progress Rate (APR) in 2012-13.
The Bobcats posted a perfect APR score of 1,000 to pace the Mid-American Conference.
The APR is a real-time measure of eligibility, retention and graduation of student-athletes competing on every NCAA Division I athletics team. The most recent scores are based on a multi-year rate that averages scores from the 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years.
The goal of academic reform is improvement, not punishment. Not only does academic reform ensure accountability for student-athletes, teams and institutions, but it also provides fairness by considering individual circumstances per team and school.
