Classroom Cards...Louisville ranks high in National APR -- THURSDAY CARDINAL COUPLE



WOMEN'S LACROSSE, WOMEN'S GOLF IN TOP 10 FOR ACADEMIC PROGRESS RATE


The responsibilities of a student-athlete include performance on and off the playing venue and the Louisville women's sports programs excel at keeping the standards and results exemplary in both areas.

Courtney Trimble's women's golf team and Kellie Young's lacrosse squad are ranked in the top ten nationally in the APR.

So what exactly is this APR we speak of? 

Known as the academic progress rate...it is the data collected to provide a measure of successes in the areas of academic eligibility, retention and graduation for student-athletes over a four-year period. 

Louisville Lacrosse has been recognized for the last five years by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association for having a cumulative 3.0 or better GPA.  

Cortnee Daley and Hannah Koloski were selected for the All-ACC Women's Lacrosse Academic in 2015.

Louisville women's golf registered the highest GPA of all teams on campus for the Fall 2015 with a 3.524 mark. Laura Restrepo and Katie Mitchell earned ACC postgraduate scholarship awards and the team included three Dean's Scholars (4.0 GPA). Kudos to men's basketball and men's golf also...for hitting the top ten in the APR. 

It is a requirement of the various coaches on the Belknap Campus...the equal attention to academics and athletics and a goal to perform at the peak ability in each that the student-athletes pursue very seriously. 

Taking care of business....on the pitch, in the fairway and in the classroom...from hole to goal. UofL Athletics.

  1. Aerial Powers Mich State goes 5th in WNBA draft. Was Hoopgurlz #98

    Last year DeArica Hamby 6th in WNBA draft
    #93 Hoopgurlz

    I think this year a few players were 1st rounders that weren't in top 100 Hoopgurlz. Could be wrong Player out of George Wahington and Richards out of Albany

    1. Er, my research lacking. Jonquel Jones Geo Washington was ranked in top 20 and Albany center not drafted.
      Courtney Williams (South Fl) taken 8th was not ranked by Hoopgurlz

  2. Sabrina Ionescue About a dozen schools have kept calling her despite her having 3 finalists.
    She has one official visit still available. Was Walz in Cali lately?

    1. Walz has been west of the Mississippi but don't think it was because of Sabrina. I'm pretty sure she's bound on staying on the west coach somewhere. Oregon State, if I was going to guess.

    1. In horse-racing there was Seattle Slew. In the WNBA there is now Seattle Stew. Bulgat won't stick past the tryouts.

  4. That's a good way to describe it .. tryouts. That's really what it is . Even some late first rounders don't stick.
