PITTSBURGH - The Duquesne men's tennis program has been recognized by the NCAA for ranking in the top 10 percent of its sport in Academic Progress Rate (APR) for the second consecutive year. Public recognition is based on scores compiled through the 2015-16 academic year.

The NCAA will release the full APR report on May 10, which will include the multi-year rates for all Division I teams.
Each year, the NCAA honors selected Division I teams by publicly recognizing their latest multi-year NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR). This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams that demonstrate a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APRs within their respective sports.
