The APR scores for the Pac-12 were released earlier today. The Bears posted strong scores across the majority of measured programs. 15 of the 26 measured programs at Cal equaled or exceeded their all-time highest scores. 20 teams scored atleast 980, and 16 of them scored above 990. Seven teams were awarded with NCAA Public Recognition due to multiple years of posting the max score of 1000. The teams recognized were Beach Volleyball, Women’s Golf, Lacrosse, Women’s Soccer, Volleyball, Men’s Tennis, and Men’s Cross Country.
“To earn such results at the nation’s No. 1 public university requires a true commitment of purpose, and our student-athletes should be commended for the outstanding effort they put into their academics,” Director of Athletics Jim Knowlton said. “While there is always room to improve, the rising trend in our APR scores is the result of a total team effort over many years from our coaches and staff, particularly those in the Athletic Study Center. Establishing a culture of success with a focus on scholarly achievement supports our student-athletes every day and helps them reach their educational goals.”
In other sports, Cal Football posted its highest ever score with 979. 979 is a 44-point jump up from where the program was 6 years ago.
In addition to football and the seven programs that achieved 1,000, the other teams that either matched or set all-time bests were: women’s cross country, field hockey, men’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s swimming & diving and women’s track & field. Five additional teams were also within 10 points of their all-time high – men’s and women’s basketball, women’s gymnastics, women’s tennis and women’s water polo.
Congratulations to all the student-athletes in their success in the classroom, while maintaining athletic success!
