OXFORD, Miss. - Eight of Ole Miss' athletics teams scored above the national average in graduation success rate, while both women's tennis and women's golf registered a perfect 100 GSR, in the latest graduation report released by the NCAA on Thursday.  

Ole Miss had an overall GSR score of 76, up four points from last year.  The GSR is based on student-athletes who entered college as freshmen in 2002-2005 and allows for the removal of those individuals who left Ole Miss in good academic standing.

"We are pleased to see many of our teams above 85 percent and in some cases well over the national average," said senior associate athletics director for academic support, Derek Cowherd.  "We will work hard to implement the proper programming to ensure all of our sports are at or above the national average, but this is a great foundation to work from."

Women's tennis has achieved a perfect score in all eight years since the inception of the rating, while women's golf received a perfect GSR for the fourth straight year.  

Soccer (95 percent), women's basketball (92 percent), volleyball (91 percent), men's golf (90 percent), men's tennis (89 percent) and softball (87 percent) also posted GSR scores above the national average.    

Women's basketball and men's tennis had a perfect 100 Federal Graduation Rate, which does not include transfers in and out.
