The Arizona State tennis, softball and soccer teams have been recognized by the NCAA for recording an Academic Progress Rate (APR) in the top 10 percent nationally, the NCAA announced Thursday. The Sun Devil tennis team earned its seventh-straight score of 1000 (or 100 percent), while softball and soccer recorded scores of 997 and 998 respectively.

With seven-straight APR scores of a perfect 1,000, the NCAA has honored the ASU tennis team each year the measurement has been in existence (since 2003-2004).
