Nine Gonzaga teams, including women’s basketball, earned a perfect Academic Progress Rate of 1,000, the NCAA announced Wednesday.

Of the 15 NCAA sanctioned sports the Bulldogs compete in, no team had a rating below 988. The data used was from the 2016-17 academic year.

Joining the women’s basketball team with a perfect rating was men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s track, men’s soccer and women’s tennis.

The men’s basketball team earned an APR of 995 – the third straight year the Zags have earned that rating.
