Valpo One of 11 Schools Honored by NSCAA for Men's and Women's Academic Award

Thursday, December 14, 2006

Valparaiso University was one of just 11 schools in all of NCAA Division I to be the recipient of the Team Academic Award from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).

The award, given annually to schools with a composite grade point average of 3.00 for the academic year, included both fall and spring semesters of a given year. Thus the award this year is for the 2005-2006 academic year.

This marks the fourth straight year the Crusaders have earned the honor in both men's and women's soccer.

Valpo's men's team had a 3.18 grade point average in 2005-2006, and was one of just two Mid-Continent Conference schools to earn the honor, joining Oakland University.

The Crusaders' women's team posted a 3.37 team GPA, joining Western Illinois University for the only Mid-Con women's schools to receive the accolade.

Besides Valpo, the only other Division I programs to have both their men's and women's programs honored by the NSCAA were Army, Binghamton, Dartmouth, Drake, Fairleigh Dickinson, Loyola (Chicago), Northwestern, Notre Dame, Western Kentucky, and Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
