The NCAA honored more than 800 Division I sports teams with public recognition awards for their latest Academic Progress Rate scores and the Creighton baseball team was one of just 30 Division I baseball programs to be recognized.
Currently in second place in the MVC Standings, the Bluejays own a 27-11 record overall this season and 12-3 Valley mark. The Bluejays host Northern Colorado this weekend in a non-conference series in Omaha.
Creighton had seven teams honored: baseball, men's golf, men's tennis, women's basketball, women's cross country, women's soccer and women's tennis. A complete list of the all the teams honored nationwide can be found HERE.
The Ivy League is the Division I conference with the largest number of high-performing squads, with 152 teams receiving awards. The Patriot League had 92 teams receiving awards, followed by the Big East with 63 teams. Yale University had 28 teams receive public recognition awards, the most of any Division I college or university.
Last year, a total of 1,048 teams were recognized. There are fewer awards this year than last year because there are fewer teams with perfect scores. The number of teams in some sports may exceed 10 percent depending on how many achieved perfect 1,000 APR scores.
Multi-year APR scores for all 6,110 Division I sports teams, including the teams receiving public recognition awards, will be announced Wednesday (May 2). The announcement also will include immediate and historical penalties for low-performing teams.
