National & World

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind (AP) College athletes are still graduating at record rates and outperforming non-athletes. The NCAA’s new Graduation Success Rate report says the percentage of players from the 2013-14 freshman class who earned degrees within six years hit 90%.

That’s one percentage point over last year’s record high. It’s also 10 percentage points above the goal established by late NCAA President Myles Brand in 2006.
