Twelve Boston College Programs Honored For APR Scores

Wicked smart.

Twelve Boston College sports programs were recognized for being in the top 10 percent of all squads in their sport, according to the NCAA's Academic Progress Rate (APR) released on Wednesday. Eagles football, golf, skiing, indoor and outdoor track men's teams were honored while cross country, ice hockey, lacrosse, swimming, indoor track, outdoor track and volleyball were recognized on the women's side.

This time last year, thirteen Boston College programs were honored. Slackers.

The Eagles football team was one of 13 FBS programs and one of four ACC schools to be recognized. BC joins Clemson, Duke and Georgia Tech as ACC programs earning public recognition honors. All four programs won honors last year as well.

Notre Dame led all ACC schools with 15 teams on the list. Duke finished with 14 and Boston College with 12. The rest: North Carolina (6), Miami (5), Virginia (5), Georgia Tech (4), Florida State (3), Wake Forest (3), Maryland (2), NC State (2), Syracuse (2), Virginia Tech (2), Clemson (1) and Pittsburgh (1).

As a conference, the ACC continues to receive high marks relative to its peers. The league's 15 schools had 77 combined teams recognized, the most from any Power 5 conference. The ACC was also one of only two conferences to have all current members have at least one team recognized. Thanks, Clemson football and Pitt men's basketball!

The ACC also had the most football teams from its 2012-13 membership recognized among Power 5 conferences (4) and tied for the most men's basketball teams (2). Louisville's men's basketball team, which joins the conference on July 1, also was recognized.

Multiyear APRs for the most-recent single-year figures from 2012-13 for all Division I sports teams will be released next Wednesday, May 14.
