IPFW volleyball once again gets perfect score for graduation rates

Friday, October 26, 2012 - 1:19 am

For the sixth consecutive year, the IPFW men's volleyball team remained perfect in player graduation rates.

The Mastodons were one of four men's volleyball teams in the nation to have a perfect 100 percent in the latest single-year Graduation Success Rates that the NCAA released Thursday.

The Graduation Success Rates is an annual report measuring the percentage of student-athletes from each class who graduate within six years. This latest Graduation Success Rates single-year report was for the freshman class starting in 2005.

IPFW was the only team from the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association to finish with a perfect graduation rate. Harvard, Pepperdine and Sacred Heart also had 100 percent graduation rate.

The Mastodons under coach Arnie Ball have maintained a perfect graduation rate since the athletics department became a full NCAA Division I member.

Along with men's volleyball, the IPFW men's tennis team, women's tennis team and women's golf team each scored a perfect 100 percent for their single-year graduation rate.
