Women's Soccer Earns NSCAA Team Academic Award
Nov. 19, 2003
Memphis, Tenn. - The University of Memphis women's soccer team was one of 336 intercollegiate soccer programs (71 men, 265 women) to post a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher, thereby earning the NSCAA Team Academic Award for the 2002-03 school year. The Lady Tigers had a 3.22 team GPA for the 2002-2003 academic year.
"This is a great award because it shows our girls work just as hard in the classroom as they do on the playing field," Memphis head coach Brooks Monaghan said. "Academic achievements sometimes get overlooked, but this is a nice way to give our girls the recognition they deserve."
The awards will be presented at the College Coaches Luncheon on Thursday, Jan. 15, 2004, as part of the 57th Annual NSCAA Convention, to be held in Charlotte, N.C., Jan. 14-18, 2004.
