GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – For the ninth-consecutive season, the Green Bay women’s soccer program took home an NSCAA Team Academic Award for its accomplishments in the classroom during the 2012-13 academic year.

The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) annually recognizes college soccer programs that have excelled in the classroom in addition to its work on the field.

Head coach Trevor Warren’s squad recorded a cumulative grade point average of 3.17 during the academic year to take home honors for the ninth-consecutive season. The Phoenix was one of six teams in the Horizon league to receive the honor including Cleveland State, Milwaukee, Oakland, UIC and Valparaiso.

“I’m extremely proud of the ladies on receiving the NSCAA Academic Achievement award for the ninth straight year,” head coach Trevor Warren said. “It’s a testament to their hard work and dedication in the classroom and their embodiment of the term ‘student-athlete’. It couldn’t have come at a more opportune time as their midterm grades come across my desk, and as usual they are excellent.”

A total of 862 college soccer teams (269 men, 593 women) posted a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher to earn the distinction. Of that total, 182 schools had both their men’s and women’s programs recognized, including Green Bay. The entire list is available here
