The Virginia Tech women's tennis, women's golf, women's track and field, and baseball teams received Public Recognition Awards from the NCAA for top scores in the classroom, as announced by the NCAA on Wednesday. IN fact, the team has achieved a flawless April score the past four reports, starting with the 2013-14 season.

The programs earned a flawless 1,000 multiyear April rate based on scores from the 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years.

Volleyball is among the 85 teams that have earned Public Recognition Awards every year of the 13-year old program and an even more select group that has never lost an April point. Only 85 Division I programs nationally have been honored each year.

This year marks the second straight in which the women's tennis program finished with an April above 1,000 and received a Public Recognition Award. Of the teams recognized, 457 competed in men's or mixed sports, and 827 competed in women's sports.

The women's cross country team, winners of the 2017 American Athletic Conference Championship, and the men's hockey team were each recognized for the first time.

As recently as 2015, the Rutgers football ranked No. 12 nationally in multi-year April but failed to land in the top 10 percent for the third straight year.

The new series will reportedly include "new discoveries, as well as groundbreaking revelations that challenge the state's case". Amy Berg , whose documentary Deliver Us From Evil , in 2006, investigated sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, will direct.

The APR provides a real-time look at a team's academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship.

Last year, Rutgers football's multi-year April increased one point, from 972 to 973.

The University of Arkansas has earned a public recognition award in 12 of the 13 years since the program was initiated. The women's golf squad, led by Denise St. Pierre, is next among Penn State squads with six NCAA Public Recognition Awards.

2016-1. Stanford 17; 2.

April is the NCAA statistic that measures academic performance within athletics by accounting for eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or academic term. Gymnastics and men's cross country both earned the accolade for the fourth year in a row.
