FRESNO, Calif. --- Fresno State student-athletes once again demonstrated excellence in the classroom, specifically in their Academic Progress Rate (APR) for the 2011-12 academic year, according to the latest data released by the NCAA this week.
For the fourth straight year since the NCAA adopted the APR program, all of Fresno State's sports programs are meeting and often exceeding standards. Additionally, none are under APR penalties.
"Our coaches continue to recruit quality student-athletes who have been successful both in the classroom and in athletics competition," said Natalie Nakic, Fresno State's Director of Student-Athlete Services.

There was improvement nearly across the board again in the multi-year year rates as 13 of Fresno State's 18 NCAA recognized sports either surpassed or maintained last year's scores for the second straight year.
