GW's women's cross country, golf, gymnastics, women's swimming & diving, men's tennis, men's and women's track and women's water polo teams notched a flawless 1,000.

The University of Washington's average April rate for athletics rose to 991, marking the seventh consecutive year that the average rate has risen.

"I would like to also thank the staff of our Student-Athlete Success Program for their outstanding work with student-athletes from all 24 of our sports", said Benedict. April is used to track the academic progress and the retention of student-athletes at a particular institution.

April is a measurement of retention of student-athletes from year to year and academic progress toward graduation. Three-point improvements in baseball and football four-year rates contributed to that increase.

Every Division I sports team calculates its April each academic year, similar to a report card. Twenty-one of the 22 squads - most in school history - exceeded or equaled the national average for public universities in their sports and, for the first time in school history, every Wildcat team scored at least 958.

Traders also remained cautious ahead of Friday's US government payrolls report, following March's underwhelming 98,000 figure. Both Brent and WTI futures are down around 17% for the year so far despite the OPEC effort to support prices.


The NCAA has been tracking April for 12 years. Men's and women's golf carry flawless multi-year rates for the past four years as well. Division I student-athletes across the country continue to make gains in the classroom, earning all-time high results in the April. The only SEC school with a higher overall average over the four-year period was Vanderbilt. In addition, men's basketball teams earned a 966 four-year rate (up from 964), and women's basketball teams earned a 980 (up from 978).

"Academics are at the forefront of the priorities within our football team, and we are excited with the results in the classroom from the spring semester", Jones said shortly after he was hired.

The newly released multiyear April scores are comprised of data submitted for 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16. Included in that group are men's golf, baseball, men's basketball, football, men's track and field, women's basketball, women's cross country, women's golf, soccer and women's tennis. Stanford, with a flawless 1,000 score, was first.

The nine programs' rankings were based on multi-year scores in their respective sports.

The football team made strides, earning a multi-year score of 975. The football team scored a 980, which bettered the national average for Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) teams by 14 points. The men's hoops team's multi-year score also ranks seventh in the league.
