Seven Dayton Flyers Athletic Teams earn APR Recognition Awards

Football, Men’s Golf & Women’s Golf Have Earned the Recognition All 10 Years

Indianapolis – Seven University of Dayton athletic programs were honored today when the NCAA recognized teams earning multi-year Academic Progress Rates in the top 10 percent of all squads in each sport. The Dayton teams honored for the 2013-14 academic year were: baseball, football, men’s golf, women’s cross country, women’s golf, women’s tennis and women’s track.

For the fourth-consecutive year, UD also has the most teams honored of any school in Ohio.

Seven Flyer teams have received the APR Recognition Award at least five times in the 10 years of the honors program. They are men’s and women’s basketball, men’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, and rowing.
University of Dayton football, men’s golf and women’s golf have received the APR recognition award for 10 consecutive years – every time since the APR was instituted.

Dayton football was one of two programs honored from the Pioneer Football League, and the only one in Ohio. UD football is in an elite group. Dayton is one of eight football teams to earn the honor all 10 years. The others are: Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Davidson, Duke, Pennsylvania and Yale.

Dayton is one of two universities to have both its golf programs earn APR recognition all 10 years. The other is Dartmouth. Men’s golf programs to earn the honor for 10 consecutive years are: Brown, Connecticut, Dartmouth, Dayton, Duke, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame. On the women’s side the teams include: Boston, Bucknell, Butler, Dartmouth, Dayton, Elon, Gonzaga, North Carolina, Northwestern, Pennsylvania, Princeton, Urbana-Champaign, and Yale. Dayton is the only school in Ohio that its men’s golf team earned APR recognition this year.

Dayton tied for third in the Atlantic 10 Conference with five of its teams in the league earning the APR Recognition Award.

The Flyers are one of three in the Atlantic 10 to have its baseball team honored (Davidson, Dayton, Fordham) and the Flyers are just one of two schools in Ohio to earn the recognition. The other is Xavier.

This marks the fourth-consecutive year that UD women’s tennis has received the APR Recognition Award. They are one of six programs in the A-10, as well as in Ohio earning the honor this year.

Each year, the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR).  This announcement is part of the overall Division I academic reform effort and is intended to highlight teams that demonstrate a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APRs within their respective sports.  Specifically, these teams posted multiyear APRs in the top 10 percent of all squads in each sport.  This year’s release will again include recognition in the sport of football by subdivision (i.e. Football Bowl Subdivision and NCAA Football Championship Subdivision).

The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship.  The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team’s academic performance.
Multi-year APRs for all Division I sports teams, including the teams receiving public recognition, will be announced May 27.

Dayton Will Play Duquesne, La Salle, Rhode Island, St. Bonaventure & Saint Louis Home & Home

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – University of Dayton men’s basketball fans will have the opportunity to see five of the six Atlantic 10 Conference teams that played in the post season, and seven of the eight A-10 teams that had finished above .500 in league play in the 2015-16 season.  That was determined after the conference revealed the upcoming season’s home-and-road matchups.  The A-10 will announce a full schedule with dates later in the summer.

The Flyers will play Duquesne, La Salle, Rhode Island, St. Bonaventure and Saint Louis home-and-home, and will also host regular season champion Davidson, George Washington, UMass and tournament champion VCU.  Dayton will visit Fordham, George Mason, Richmond and Saint Joseph’s.
Davidson and VCU played in the NCAA tournament, while Rhode Island, George Washington and Richmond participated in the 2015 NIT.  All were at least 10-8 in conference action, as were UMass and St. Bonaventure.  The final team in both lists is, of course, Dayton.  UD was tied for second in the regular season with a 13-5 A-10 mark, and reached the third round of the NCAA tournament.

The league’s 14 members will play an 18-game conference schedule again in 2015-16.  Teams will play each opponent once and five teams twice.
Dayton was 27-9 and advanced to the Third Round of the NCAA tournament this season.  The Flyers return four starters – rising senior Dyshawn Pierre, and rising juniors Kyle Davis, Kendall Pollard and Scoochie Smith — and eight letterwinners.  The quartet will serve as UD’s 2015-16 co-captains.
Miller and his coaching staff will add six newcomers, including wing Charles Cooke and center Steve McElvene (who both practiced with the team this season) and four highly-touted freshmen – guard John Crosby and forwards Ryan Mikesell, Sam Miller and Xeryrius Williams.

Remaining elements of UD’s schedule (non-conference opponents, all playing dates and all game times) will be announced as they become available.
The 2016 Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Championship will be played March 9-13, 2016 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Team Jegs Pre-Race Notes for JEGS NHRA Pacific SPORTSnationals this weekend at Fontana

Pre-race Notes:

JEGS NHRA Pacific SPORTSnationals

Auto Club Dragway at Auto Club Speedway, Fontana, Calif. (May 29-31)

The JEGS NHRA Pacific SPORTSnationals will return to its original home at Auto Club Dragway at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. The event was held in Fontana from 2006 to 2011 and was moved to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway from 2012 to 2014. This is the second of three JEGS SPORTSnationals events held each season.

 

A total of 10 drivers have scored multiple victories at the Pacific SPORTSnationals, including Alan Ellis, Wayne Newman, Justin Lamb, Aaron Kinard, Tibor Kadar, Mark Faul, John Widmann, Ed Sigmon, Leo Glasbrenner, Aaron Pine, and Rik Takahashi.

 

The list of past world champions who have also won the JEGS Pacific SPORTSnationals includes Jeg Coughlin Jr., Ryan McClanahan, Keith Lynch, Ed DeStaute, Mike Ferderer, Justin Lamb, Alan Ellis, and Dean Carter.

 

In nine years, just one woman, current nitro Funny Car racer Alexis DeJoria, has won the JEGS Pacific SPORTSnationals. She won the Super Comp title at the inaugural event in 2006.

The battle for the coveted JEGS Crown trophy will continue at this weekend’s event. The JEGS Crown is a handcrafted trophy earned by winning two of the three JEGS SPORTSnationals events in a calendar year. The drivers currently eligible for the JEGS Crown are the champions from the Belle Rose, La., event held earlier this season: Arnie Martel (Comp), Anthony Bertozzi (Super Stock), Kevin Helms (Stock), Jeff Lopez (Super Comp), Holden Laris (Super Gas), Ray Dew (Super Street), Keith Raftery (Top Dragster), Robert Mandell (Top Sportsman), and Dave Gautreaux (Sportsman Motorcycle). Since its inception, the JEGS Crown has been awarded just once, to competitor Mike Ashley, who won the Pro Mod class in Belle Rose and Columbus, Ohio, in 2005.

 

The JEGS NHRA Pacific SPORTSnationals will feature several special events, including a Gamblers race; shootouts for competitors in Super Comp, Super Gas, and Super Street; and traditional class eliminations for Super Stock and Stock racers.

 

The only time that NHRA national event titles have been awarded in Top Comp and Super Eliminator was the inaugural Pacific SPORTSnationals race in 2006. Justin Lamb won in Top Comp and Mike Solina won in Super Eliminator. Those categories have since been replaced by Top Dragster and Top Sportsman.

 

While no driver has doubled at the JEGS Pacific SPORTSnationals, two have come close. Coughlin earned a win in Super Comp and a runner-up in Super Gas at the 2011 event, and Mark Faul posted a win in Super Stock and a runner-up in Stock in 2008.

 

Prior to a revival in 2004, SPORTSnationals events were held from 1974 to 1986 at a trio of tracks: Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Ky.; Houston International Raceway; and Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.

JEGS Pacific SPORTSnationals returns to Fontana, California

Like us on Facebook Follow us on Twitter View our videos on YouTube

 

FONTANA, Calif. (May 26) — The JEGS NHRA Pacific SPORTSnationals, a showcase event for racers in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, will return to its original home this weekend at Auto Club Dragway.

The arrival of the special event is welcome news for racers throughout the western United States, but it has a special meaning to those in Southern California, the birthplace of organized drag racing. The dragstrip at Auto Club Speedway fought noise issues for several years, which forced the JEGS Pacific SPORTSnationals to be held in Las Vegas for the last three seasons. Now, the event is returning to Fontana, where it was held from 2006 to 2011.

 

For Sportsman drag racing action and good times, few events rival the JEGS SPORTSnationals. The second of three JEGS Mail Order-backed events that highlight NHRA’s Sportsman racers, more than 400 competitors are expected to compete. Much like its companion events, the JEGS NHRA Cajun SPORTSnationals in Belle Rose, La., and the JEGS NHRA Northern SPORTSnationals in Hebron, Ohio, the Pacific SPORTSnationals will crown champions in Comp, Super Stock, Stock, Super Comp, Super Gas, and Super Street and the exciting Top Dragster and Top Sportsman eliminators. The Sportsman Motorcycle class will also be featured during the four-day race.

 

Keeping with the long-standing tradition, the JEGS Pacific SPORTSnationals promises a fun-filled experience that includes intense on-track action and plenty of after-hours entertainment.

 

There will also be an array of bonus features, including traditional class eliminations for drivers in Super Stock and Stock, as well as shootouts for racers in the Super classes, Top Sportsman, and Top Dragster.

 

The defending event champions who are expected to once again challenge for coveted NHRA Wallys include Tony Mandella (Comp), Leo Glasbrenner (Super Stock), Scott Burton (Stock), Daniel Henderson (Super Comp), Aaron Kinard (Super Gas), Dave Hall (Super Street), Chris Thode (Top Dragster), Wayne Newman (Top Sportsman), and Leo Sawyer (Sportsman Motorcycle). Glasbrenner, Kinard, and Newman will each be seeking their third wins at the prestigious event.

 

The JEGS Pacific SPORTSnationals will also mark the first opportunity in 2015 for racers to claim the JEGS Crown trophy. The prized trophy, handcrafted by Dan Dreisbach of Naked Sculpture, is awarded to any driver who can win the same class in two of the three JEGS SPORTSnationals events in a given season. The winners of the JEGS Cajun SPORTSnationals held last March in Belle Rose, La., can claim the award if they win in Fontana.

 

Should any driver win the JEGS Crown, he would become just the second driver to accomplish the rare feat since 2005, joining Pro Mod competitor Mike Ashley. The JEGS Pacific SPORTSnationals is the second major event held this season at Auto Club Dragway. The track also hosted its annual Pacific Division NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event last weekend.

 

The JEGS NHRA Pacific SPORTSnationals, a showcase event for racers in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, will return to its original home this weekend at Auto Club Dragway.
