The women's soccer program ranked tied for third in the ACC with a multi-year April of 997, and it has been above 990 every year since 2009-2010. None of USC's sports teams will face penalties.

All of the Ducks are flying comfortably above the required minimum standards for the Academic Progress Rate.

"This week's Academic Progress Rate release highlights our continuing emphasis on assisting our student-athletes toward obtaining a four-year degree", said Austin Peay Athletics Director Ryan Ivey.

Three MSU squads produced or tied their highest multi-year April. Only Northwestern (995), Air Force (995) and MI (993) had higher rates, covering the 2012-16 school years.

LSU's success in the annual APR Report comes on the heels of the school's Graduation Success Rate (GSR) report last November that revealed an all-time high of 88% for the Tigers. The team's multi-year April sat at 946 in coach Tony Barbee's final season in 2013-14.

NOTE - Women's indoor and outdoor track are scored as one program.

Men's tennis earned a mark of 984.

Overall, eight of Marshall's programs performed above the national average. Had Missouri fallen short of a four-year average of 930, it would have been subjected to NCAA sanctions - potentially having to sit out a year of postseason play. Nationally, both Northwestern and Air Force posted 995 scores, tying for the top spot. Men's cross country, swimming and volleyball recorded flawless scores for the second consecutive year and Marshall doubled the number of programs with a ideal April to eight in 2015-16 from four in 2014-15.

The Radford men's basketball team's multi-year score of 980 was its highest on record. In his final multi-year April score, Tedford's program posted a 935 - the lowest multi-year score in the Pac-12, and one of the 10 lowest in all of major college football. Women's soccer had a score of 997, 11 points above the national average. Twelve Ole Miss teams also exceeded the 981 threshold in 2015-16.

The APR is used by the NCAA to measure a school's ability to keep players academically eligible and in school.

UT's football team had a multi-year April of 978 (out of 1,000), its best mark since the NCAA began releasing data in 2004-05.

Alabama A&M men's basketball had a rate of 869 for the most recent four-year period and a 904 for the 2015-16 school year.

Nine Gophers programs had ideal scores for both the most recent year studied (2015-16) and for the four-year span that makes up the program's multiyear rate (2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16).

Last week, the NCAA announced that five UConn athletic programs were recognized for top academic performances.

The University of Washington's average April rate for athletics rose to 991, marking the seventh consecutive year that the average rate has risen. "Our success in this area is built on the strong collaborative effort between our student-athletes, coaches and support staff, an effort that is a source of great pride".

Georgia's men's basketball team recorded an April of 985, which ranks fourth in the SEC.

Team are rewarded and penalized based on annual April results. Men's and women's golf carry flawless multi-year rates for the past four years as well.

Baylor softball has received this prestigious recognition six times, recording flawless scores of 1,000 each year, while also excelling on the field with six consecutive NCAA Tournament trips and a pair of Women's College World Series semifinal appearances. Football, baseball, men's swimming and diving, and softball are each ranked second in the SEC among their respective sports. The Panther baseball, men's basketball, men's cross country, football, women's basketball, women's cross country, women's gymnastics, women's soccer, women's tennis and volleyball programs also performed at or above their April marks from a year ago. The Crimson Tide football program received a score of 980, tied for second place (with Auburn and Florida) in the 14-member Southeastern Conference.

Seven more teams earned ideal scores in 2015-16: Men's golf, men's tennis, women's equestrian, women's soccer, women's indoor and outdoor track, and women's volleyball. His final single-year April was 923. "Graduation is the goal and we will be celebrating that achievement with significant number of graduates this Saturday". Those penalties can include practice restrictions and playing-season reductions.
