Naval Academy At The Head Of The Class For Graduation Rates

Nov. 18, 2009



ANNAPOLIS, Md.-For the fifth year in a row, the United States Naval Academy is at the head of the class for graduating NCAA student-athletes on the Division IA level.  Navy graduated 100 percent of its student-athletes in 10 of the 20 NCAA sports reported on and averaged 98 percent for student-athletes in all sports.   Navy’s overall graduation success rate of 98 percent was second only to Notre Dame.  The graduation success rate measures those student-athletes that enrolled from 1999-02.
"Our student-athletes continually strive to set the standard on the playing fields, in the classroom and in Bancroft Hall," said Naval Academy Director of Athletics Chet Gladchuk.  "The support and encouragement they receive through the Commandant and his staff and the academic dean's office is extraordinary and provides tremendous motivation to be successful morally, mentally and physically. Our midshipmen clearly define the true meaning of student-athlete."
