KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) announced that the Ohio University women's soccer team has earned the NSCAA Team Academic Award for the 2012-13 academic year.
The Bobcats posted a 3.30 team grade point average.
"The team winning this award is great recognition of how hard they work off the field and in the classroom," said first-year head coach Aaron Rodgers. "We strive to excel both on the field and in the classroom. It takes a lot of time management and discipline to be able to do both."
A total of 863 soccer teams (270 men, 593 women) posted a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher, thereby earning recognition from the NSCAA.
Ohio finished the 2013 campaign with a record of 7-8-5 and qualified for the Mid-American Conference Tournament for a fifth straight season. The Bobcats finished the 2013 regular season with their first non-losing record since 2009 (7-7-5). Ohio posted five road victories in 2013 - the most wins away from home for the Bobcats since 2004.
