Swim and Dive cheers

According to an NCAA Academic Progress Report released this week, all 15 Northern Arizona University sponsored sports teams exceeded the required academic standards.

NAU’s overall Academic Progress Rate for 2014-15 was 975. Eleven NAU squads carry multi-year totals above 960, and five of those programs have a total of 985 or higher.

Teams must meet a minimum multi-year Academic Progress Rate score of 930 out of 1,000 points possible—or a 940 average over the most recent two years—or risk losing scholarships and face other sanctions over time, including bans on postseason play.
