Over the past 12 years, Duke has ranked among the nation's top FBS institutions in terms of raw number of sports receiving the April public recognition awards: 2018 - 1.
The other Duke programs recognized were men's and women's fencing, men's and women's soccer, field hockey, men's golf, women's lacrosse, women's cross country, women's tennis and volleyball. All Division I teams' April scores will be released May 23.
Brown University led all Division I schools with 20 of its teams earning public recognition awards.
This is the 13th year that Academic Progress Rate (APR) data has been collected for Division I schools.
Also among those 13 are two teams-women's basketball and men's fencing-that won NCAA championships in 2018. "For the second-straight year, we have a school record eight programs receive public recognition from the NCAA and we are incredibly proud of the that accomplishment".

In addition to Harry's niece and nephew, Kensington Palace announced five more bridesmaids and three more page boys on Wednesday. Samantha Grant argued she's an American and if she wants to talk about herself and her father, Thomas Markle , she's allowed.
Loyola Marymount University men's golf and water polo teams and the women's swimming and diving team were honored as well as the UC Irvine men's cross-country and water polo and women's cross-country teams. "To have nine national champions so far this year - including men's and women's basketball - be among those recognized illustrates that student-athletes succeed athletically and academically".
The total number of teams being recognized increased by 79 from a year ago, largely as a result of an increase in ideal scores, according to the NCAA. The APR includes eligibility, retention and graduation in the calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.
Eleven of Duke's intercollegiate athletic programs were honored Wednesday with NCAA Public Recognition Awards.
Among those teams were UNC's basketball team, which received a ideal 1,000 April score, and Duke's football team. The most-recent April scores are multi-year rates - or a rolling four-year average - based on the scores from the 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years. Programs who do not meet the 930 threshold to qualify for the postseason and can face penalties for extended periods of poor academic performance.
