KANSAS CITY, Kan. - The University of Wyoming women's soccer team earned the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) College Team Academic Award for the 2012-13 academic year, the NSCAA announced Thursday. It was the fourth time the Cowgirls have been recognized for the award and first time since 2010.
Wyoming is one of 593 collegiate women soccer teams that posted a grade point average of 3.0 or higher to earn the NSCAA Team Academic Award.
"It is good to see our student-athletes being recognized for their hard work in the classroom," UW head coach Pete Cuadrado said. "We take just as much pride in these awards as any others we get."
The Cowgirls posted a 3.09 grade point average during the academic year. From 2008 to 2010, UW earned the award three consecutive years in a row.
