GW Women's Soccer Earns Fourth Straight NSCAA Academic Team Award
Colonials Boasted 3.40 Team GPA During 2012-13 Academic Year
Nov. 21, 2013
WASHINGTON – For the fourth time in as many years, George Washington women’s soccer has been honored with the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) College Team Academic Award for the 2012-13 academic year, the governing body announced on Thursday.
The 30-member Colonials combined for a 3.40 team grade-point average in Sarah Barnes’ inaugural season at the helm of the program. The team paced GW Athletics throughout the year with 14 student-athletes on the Fall 2012 Atlantic 10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll and 13 tabbed to the Spring 2013 Honor Roll.
Melanie Keer and Nicole Ulrick posted unblemished 4.0 GPAs during the fall and spring semesters, respectively, of their junior years. Additionally, Kayley Sullivan (’13), who earned a perfect 4.0 during her final semester, was named an Outstanding Academic Achievement Awardee by the university – an honor given only to sophomores, juniors and seniors who are in the top two percent of their respective college or school based on GPA – and was also honored as GW Athletics’ Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
GW was one of just four A-10 universities and 79 NCAA Division I schools with both men’s and women’s programs honored.
To earn NSCAA Academic distinction, teams must earn a 3.0 GPA or higher over the course of the fall and spring semesters.
