Four teams – men’s golf, men’s swimming and diving, volleyball and women’s cross country – were recognized by the NCAA with Public Recognition Awards for finishing in the top 10 percentile of their sports. The football team finished one sport shy of its fourth award. It was the 12th consecutive award for the golf team, which has had a perfect score of 1,000 every year.
“It’s a great point of pride for Georgia Tech athletics to rank among the nation’s leaders in APR,” Georgia Tech director of athletics Todd Stansbury said in a statement. “As I said last week when the Public Recognition Awards were announced, our APR success is due to our student-athletes’, coaches’ and academic support staff’s dedication to our mission of developing young people who will change the world. I thank them and congratulate them for their hard work and achievements.”
