    FRESNO, Calif. - The Fresno State women's golf team is a recipient of the NCAA Public Recognition Award. This award is provided to those teams that have an NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR) in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sport. The women's golf team received a perfect APR score of 1,000.

    APR statistics by the NCAA have reflected that the Fresno State women's golf team has received a perfect APR score two years in a row. This will be the fourth year of the APR data when it is released near the end of the 2007-08 season.

    Head coach Angie Cates plays a critical role in helping her student-athletes achieve their athletics and academic goals.

    "I'm very proud of the players that have come through this golf program and have represented us well in the academics and on the golf course," Cates said. "They continue to represent Fresno State with determination and commitment in the classroom."

    Every semester every scholarship student athlete has the possibility of earning two points toward the team's APR by being eligible at the end of the semester and coming back the next semester. APR is an average of all the points earned divided by all the points possible multiplied by 1,000.
