Oct. 6, 2016

ATHENS, Ohio — The Ohio women’s soccer team has once again been awarded the National Soccer Coaches Association of America’s (NSCAA) Team Academic Award for the 2015-16 school year.

The Bobcats earned a 3.42 team grade point average.

This is the sixth-straight year that the Bobcats have earned the honor, and the fourth time under current head coach, Aaron Rodgers.

A total of 892 soccer teams (315 men, 577 women) from throughout the United States have earned the NSCAA Team Academic Award for exemplary performance in the classroom as a team during the 2015-16 academic year.

To qualify for the award, the team must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 or higher for the entire academic year. The team GPA is determined by adding every player's GPA, then dividing by the number of players.

The Bobcats will take on Buffalo on tonight (Oct. 6) at 7 p.m. in Buffalo, N.Y.
