Seven teams of Washington State University student athletes achieved top marks in the latest academic progress rate report published by the National Collegiate Athletics Association.

The WSU squads that scored a perfect 1,000 in the 2022–23 academic year report from the NCAA included four women’s and three men’s teams:

  • Men’s and women’s golf
  • Women’s basketball
  • Women’s tennis
  • Women’s volleyball
  • Men’s cross country
  • Men’s track and field

Two teams, women’s volleyball and golf, have achieved perfect scores across the past four years of NCAA data. Seven WSU teams saw their one-year academic progress rates increase in 22–23 compared to the academic year prior, with nine teams seeing progress in the four-year scholastic statistic.

Each spring, the NCAA rates men’s and women’s intercollegiate teams across the country on the academic performance and retention of student athletes. More information about the NCAA’s efforts to track academic success of Division 1 programs is available on the organization’s website.
