The NCAA released it’s annual Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores and WSU performed will once again. No WSU teams dipped below the four year 930 score which leads to NCAA infractions and some teams did remarkably well. Volleyball, men’s and women’s golf as well as women’s cross country recorded perfect scores of 1000 for year. Shout out to women’s golf which has recorded perfect scores for the last three years. Football had the lowest score of 960 which didn’t put it in the danger zone, but they put up a one year score of 939 which is something to keep an eye on for the future. Cougar fans definitely don’t want a return to 2008 when the football team was docked 8 scholarships for it’s APR score.

Former basketball coach Ernie Kent may not have won much on the court but deserves a lot of credit for academic success. He kept the program at 970 score despite numerous transfers and departures during his tenure. This is excellent progress from the 938 score put up over the 2013-14 season. Great job by all the Cougar programs and Athletic Director Pat Chun for a successful academic year!
