LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The University of Louisville men's indoor track was honored with a Division I Academic Progress Rate Public Recognition award by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the Indianapolis-based organization announced Thursday.

The Cardinals, whose multi-year APR score ranks in the top 10 percent of all squads in the sport, were one of just 28 men's indoor track and field programs nationally to earn the accolade and only one of four in the BIG EAST.

The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes eligibility, retention and graduation in the calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport. High-performing teams receiving awards posted APR scores ranging from 977 to a perfect 1,000. The awards are based on the multi-year APR scores from the 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years.

Overall, the BIG EAST led all FBS conferences with 70 teams recognized, placing third among all Division I leagues.
