KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) recently announced the 883 collegiate soccer teams to receive a College Team Academic Award for the 2013-14 academic year and the Washington College women's soccer team was among those honored.
A team grade-point average of 3.0 or better for the academic year is required to earn the Team Academic Award. The Shorewomen cleared that benchmark and then some, finishing the year with a 3.47 grade-point average.
"I am really proud of the team for never forgetting the importance of our performance in the classroom while also working hard out on the field," notes junior Bailey Howard (Laurel, Md./Reservoir), one of the team's captains. "As student-athletes, we devote a lot of our time to our sport, but we also put a lot of effort into our school work."
Johns Hopkins, McDaniel, Haverford, and Bryn Mawr joined the Shorewomen as Centennial Conference women's soccer teams to earn the award.
