With one of the best team GPAs in their sport, the Lady Barons earned an honorable mention in the NJCAA 2014-15 Academic Teams of the Year category with an overall 3.21 GPA. To be eligible for the accolades, teams needed to have a minimum 3.0 GPA for the year. This is the second team award that women’s soccer snagged this year, also earning the Sportsmanship Award from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America’s Ethics Committee. The honor is based on the number of penalty cards a team receives. The Lady Barons had no red cards and only two yellow cards to earn a silver-level sportsmanship award.
“The Lady Barons had a great season, earning top seed in the Region XIX tournament and a perfect record against their conference, but their sportsmanship and academic awards give much deserved recognition to qualities that are most important to our student athletes—their incredible character and commitment to learning,” said head coach Kathleen DeLitta. “We couldn’t be more proud.”
