Multi-year Academic Progress Rate scores for nine Georgia Southern athletics programs, including football and men’s basketball, improved for the reporting period ending with the 2011-2012 academic year, according to the most recent data provided by the NCAA. All 15 programs surpassed the 900 multi-year threshold for possible sanctions. Eight programs improved their single-year scores, while the swimming and diving program recorded a perfect 1,000 for the second straight season. Golf, men’s soccer, women’s tennis and volleyball also posted perfect single-year scores of 1,000.
