Temple's women's lacrosse team was among three teams at the school with a perfect 100 percent graduation success rate.

Temple University student-athletes posted an 88 percent Graduation Success Rate (GSR), according to NCAA data. This ties the school record set in 2016. It also marks the eighth straight year of either tying or setting a new mark.

The NCAA GSR is designed to reflect the proportion of student-athletes on any given team who earn a college degree within a six-year window of their initial enrollment.

Ten Temple teams earned 90 or higher GSR scores with three — women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s tennis, posting a perfect 100 score.

Temple football posted an 83 GSR, which is tied for 27th among FBS schools and is also one of 23 FBS teams to have maintained a GSR of 80 or greater in each of the last four years.
