Soccer Earns NSCAA Team Academic Award for Sixth Straight Year

Nov. 22, 2013

RUSTON - For the sixth straight year, the Louisiana Tech soccer team earned the NSCAA Team Academic Award, announced today by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

To receive the award, a program has to post a grade point average of 3.0 or higher.

LA Tech was one of 593 women's soccer programs to do so, achieving a grade point average of 3.36, the third highest in the state.

"This program has been truly inspirational," said head coach Kevin Sherry. "The amount of community service they do, the effort they give in practice and in games, the self-sacrifice and the total commitment to the team culture are things I am honored to witness first hand."

The Lady Techsters also received the Ethics and Sportsmanship bronze award. For the season, the team only had nine yellow cards and zero red cards.

"These team academic and sportsmanship awards are just two more examples of how these young ladies represent the University with distinction," said Sherry. "I am extremely proud of this team and the future can only be very bright for this group of very talented young ladies."

Founded in 1941 and based in Kansas City, Kan., the NSCAA is a non-profit organization with a mission to educate coaches, encourage excellence and serve the soccer community.
