The Iona College women's basketball and golf teams were two of 954 teams earning NCAA Public Recognition Awards, based on their most recent multi-year Academic Progress Rates. These awards are given each year to teams scoring in the top 10 percent in each sport with their APRs.

Women's basketball earns the honor for the third consecutive season and is one of three Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference programs to be honored during the time frame.

"It is great to be recognized once again, and with a perfect score for the fifth time in the last six seasons," said head coach Anthony Bozzella.  "All the credit for this success goes to our student-athletes, faculty and the other members of the college community that make this possible."

The golf program was awarded its first Public Recognition Award, and like women's basketball, is one of three MAAC schools to be recognized.

In seven years of the NCAA announcing its Public Recognition Awards, Iona has had 15 programs named to the list. Each year, the NCAA tracks the classroom performance of student-athletes on every Division I team through the annual scorecard of academic achievement, known as APR. The score measures eligibility and retention each semester or quarter and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport. 

I am extremely proud of my players' efforts both in and out of the classroom and it's a tremendous accomplishment that I know each of my players takes a great deal of pride in," said head golf coach Matt Glovaski. "We set out each year with a goal to achieve a high level of academic excellence and to be recognized is a great honor."
