MEN’S SOCCER HONORED WITH NCAA PUBLIC RECOGNITION AWARD FOR FOURTH STRAIGHT YEAR

INDIANAPOLIS — The University of New Hampshire men's soccer program was recently honored for the fourth straight year as a recipient of 2009-10 NCAA Public Recognition Award for its efforts in the classroom.

Including UNH, only 11 men's soccer programs have been recognized by the NCAA in each of the last four years with the Public Recognition Award, a list that includes: Belmont, Brown, Colgate, Columbia, Dartmouth, Duke, Marist, Northwestern University, University of Pennsylvania and Yale

Each year the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear APR. This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams who demonstrate a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APRs within their respective sports.

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.

Multiyear APRs for all Division I sports teams, including the teams receiving public recognition, will be announced at a later date. That announcement also will include immediate and historical penalties for low-performing teams. As in past years, you will be notified prior to this public release of scores and penalties.
