Ten different Arizona Wildcats teams managed perfect scores in the latest Academic Progress Rate information released by the NCAA, the school announced Tuesday.

Arizona’s men’s and women’s cross country teams, men’s and women’s tennis squads, women’s basketball, women’s golf, soccer, softball, volleyball and beach volleyball all scored 1,000 on the APR during the 2018-19 academic year, the most recent one for one figures are available.

According to the UA athletic department, the 10 perfect scores matches a school record.

The UA men’s basketball team has a four-year average APR of 980, which is its best since averaging a perfect 1,000 after the 2013-14 season.
