WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

UNCW student-athletes continue to perform well in the classroom per the latest NCAA Academic Progress Rate report. 

Twelve of UNCW’s 18 teams achieved a perfect APR score of 1,000 for 2015-16 academic year.

“The latest APR scores show that our student-athletes are dedicated to their academic pursuits,” UNCW Athletic Director Jimmy Bass said in a news release Wednesday. “They have attained a difficult balance between their academic work and competitive lifestyles. We applaud them for their efforts.”

The NCAA figures APR numbers on the eligibility, graduation and retention of each scholarship student-athlete. Teams can face punishment if their APR is below a certain score.
