Brown was the only school to earn a perfect score in the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rates for the 2011-12 academic year in both its men’s and women’s hockey programs.
And both men’s and women’s hockey are tops among NCAA sports in their gender for average score.
It’s the fifth straight 1,000 for the Brown men’s team; the women’s team has been there three years in a row.
The scores, which are based on eligibility and retention of scholarship players, include data from the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 academic years.
The average score for men’s hockey teams was 983, tops among NCAA sports. The women’s hockey average was 989, tied for the best with field hockey and gymnastics.
Colorado College, Dartmouth and Princeton also had perfect scores among men’s programs. Boston College, Boston University, Colgate, Northeastern and Sacred Heart joined Brown among women’s programs at 1,000.
