Nevada's rifle team receives NCAA Public Recognition Award


Rifle team earns Public Recognition Award from NCAA for third straight season

May 7, 2014

RENO, Nev. – For the third year in a row, the Nevada rifle team has been honored with the Public Recognition Awards as part of the 2013 NCAA Division I Academic Performance Program.

The team scored a perfect 1,000 on the academic progress rate (APR) during the 2012-13 academic year. The Public Recognition Award comes for being part of the top 10 percent of all teams in its sport. The NCAA will announce complete APR scores for all teams next week.

This is the third consecutive year that the Wolf Pack rifle team has been publicly recognized and the fourth time in the last five years.

“We are extremely proud of the students on our rifle team and congratulate them and Coach Fred Harvey on receiving this significant award for the third straight year,” said Doug Knuth, Nevada’s Director of Athletics.

The data used for this year’s APR is through the 2012-13 season, which means student-athletes who competed between the 2009-10 season and the 2012-13 season contributed to the high marks.

“We have great scholar athletes and appreciate the recognition of their work,” Harvey said.

About this announcement:
Each year, the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR).  This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams that 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.  This year's release will again include recognition in the sport of football by subdivision (i.e., Football Bowl Subdivision and Football Championship Subdivision).
 
The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester 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.

back and winning the game in the bottom of the seventh with a
walk-off home run. The next day, the Pack climbed out of another
five-run deficit to defeat Pacific and advance to the regional championship game.
