Irish top NCAA graduation rate
By Matt Fortuna
Notre Dame's first-place finishes in football and men's and women's basketball highlighted the Irish's strong results in the Graduation Success Rate (GSR) figures released by the NCAA.
Eighteen of Notre Dame's 22 sports finished with 100 percent scores. The .818 percentage was top among FBS institutions, something Notre Dame has now accomplished in six of the past seven years.
The Irish's 97 GSR ranking for football led FBS schools. Notre Dame was one of eight schools with a 100 GSR rating in men's basketball and one of 33 schools with a 100 GSR in women's basketball.
