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.
