The NCAA released its next batch of Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores on Tuesday and Boston College sports teams once again received high marks. What is APR, you might ask?

The Academic Progress Rate, a multi-year rate based on the most recent four years of data, is a real-time measure of eligibility and retention of student-athletes competing on every Division I sports team. The most recent APR scores are based on scores from the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 academic years. This year marks the ninth year of APR data for most teams.

A total of nine BC sports teams scored a perfect 1000 on the APR -- men's golf, men's skiing, men's outdoor track, softball, women's ice hockey, women's lacrosse, women's swimming, women's indoor track and women's outdoor track. Here is how every Boston College team fared in 2011-12:

  • Men's Golf - 1000
  • Men's Skiing - 1000
  • Men's Track, Outdoor - 1000
  • Softball - 1000
  • Women's Ice Hockey - 1000
  • Women's Lacrosse - 1000
  • Women's Swimming - 1000
  • Women's Track, Indoor - 1000
  • Women's Track, Outdoor - 1000
  • Men's Swimming - 998
  • Men's Track, Indoor - 997
  • Women's Rowing - 997
  • Men's Cross Country - 996
  • Women's Soccer - 996
  • Baseball - 994
  • Men's Tennis - 994
  • Women's Volleyball - 994
  • Women's Cross Country - 993
  • Field Hockey - 989
  • Men's Ice Hockey - 986
  • Women's Skiing - 986
  • Women's Tennis - 983
  • Football - 982
  • Women's Golf - 979
  • Men's Soccer - 964
  • Women's Basketball - 962
  • Men's Basketball - 958

The football team's score of 982 was low compared to the rest of the department's programs, but was still one of only nine BCS institutions to score 980 or higher. Four of those nine programs were members of the ACC -- Boston College, Clemson, Duke and Georgia Tech. #goacc

Football
1. Duke - 989
2. Clemson - 985
3. Georgia Tech - 983
4. Boston College - 982
5. Miami - 977
6. Virginia Tech - 970
6. Wake Forest - 970
8. Pittsburgh - 962
9. Virginia - 959
10. Syracuse - 958
11. Florida State - 954
12. N.C. State - 947
13. Maryland - 937
14. North Carolina - 934
15. Louisville - 924

The men's basketball team was low man on the totem poll with a score of 958. Still, that mark is well above the NCAA's multi-year APR threshold (/ UConn). Duke led the conference with a score of 995, while newcomers Notre Dame and Louisville also scored very high. The rest of the league's APR scores, however, were basically the opposite of what you'd expect. BC's 958 score ranked 9th in the ACC and 12th in the expanded conference; ahead of only Maryland (948), Virginia (946), Wake Forest (942) and Syracuse (933).

Men's Basketball
1. Notre Dame - 1000
2. Duke - 995
2. Louisville - 995
4. Miami - 990
5. N.C. State - 984
6. Virginia Tech - 981
7. Pittsburgh - 975
8. Clemson - 973
9. Georgia Tech - 972
10. Florida State - 960
11. North Carolina - 959
12. Boston College - 958
13. Maryland - 948
14. Virginia - 946
15. Wake Forest - 942
16. Syracuse - 933

The baseball team may be coming off its worst season in program history, but at least the program continues to keep its players academically eligible.

Baseball
1. Wake Forest - 995
2. Boston College - 994
3. Duke - 993
4. Notre Dame - 992
5. Virginia - 989
6. Virginia Tech - 984
7. Miami - 983
8. Clemson - 982
9. N.C. State - 978
10. Louisville - 977
11. Georgia Tech - 970
12. Florida State - 960
13. Pittsburgh - 952
14. North Carolina - 950
15. Maryland - 930

The men's hockey program's score can be hurt by early departures if students don't leave the school in good academic standing. Still, the BC men's team holds their own in Hockey East. I demand a recount on BU's score.

Men's Ice Hockey
1. Merrimack - 997
2. New Hampshire - 991
2. Notre Dame - 991
4. Maine - 990
5. Boston University - 987
6. Boston College - 986
7. UMass-Amherst - 985
8. Connecticut - 981
9. Providence - 974
10. UMass-Lowell - 973
11. Vermont - 971
12. Northeastern - 966

Oh, Northeastern.
