  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 7, 2014) – The Rutgers women’s lacrosse team received public recognition from the NCAA for top academic performance for its multi-year Academic Progress Rate score, the NCAA announced. 

    The APR measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or quarter and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in each sport.

    Women’s lacrosse wrapped up the 2014 campaign with a 9-9 record, highlighted by capturing its first berth to the BIG EAST tournament in six years. The Scarlet Knights fell to eventual league champion, top-seeded Louisville in the league semifinals, as senior attacker Megan Clements (Pennington, N.J.) tallied a team-high three points in the loss to earn all-tournament team recognition.

    Clements was also named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team, while senior defender Chelsea Intrabartola (Commack, N.Y.) and redshirt junior midfielder Lauren Sbrilli (Martinsville, N.J.) were named to the first team. The two First Team All-BIG EAST selections were the first for Rutgers since 2007, and the three Scarlet Knight all-conference selections marked the most for RU since 2008.

    “As always, we take extreme pride in our academic performance,” said 12th-year head coach Laura Brand-Sias. “Our program strives to teach our athletes progress both on and off the field, and this is a testament to all the hard work they put in day in and day out.”

    The most recent APRs are multi-year rates based on scores from the 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-2012 and 2012-13 academic years.

    Multiyear APRs for all Division I sports teams, including the teams receiving public recognition, will be announced May 14.
