UNO hockey earns Public Recognition Award from NCAA for second straight season


For the second straight season, the UNO hockey team has earned a public recognition award from the NCAA for its success in Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores.

UNO is one of 11 NCAA Division I men’s hockey teams to earn the honor and the only one from the NCHC. The Mavericks achieved an APR score in the top 10% of all Division I hockey programs for the most recent multiyear data, 2015-19.

Other schools that received the honor were Brown, Clarkson, Colgate, Connecticut, Harvard, UMass Lowell, Michigan State, Penn State, Princeton and Yale.

The only other NCHC team ever to earn a public recognition award was Colorado College in 2014, following the conference’s first season.

UNO has been a leader in academic recognition by the NCHC, pacing the conference in Academic All-Conference recipients four times. This season, the Mavs placed 13 players on the NCHC Academic All-Conference list and seven on the Distinguished Scholar-Athletes list.

The APR is an annual scorecard of academic achievement calculated for all Division I sports teams. It measures eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in every sport.
