Scots Women's Soccer once again recognized for academic excellence

The Alma College women's soccer team's outstanding work in the classroom has once again been recognized by the NSCAA.  The National Soccer Coaches Association of America has released the list of college teams receiving the Team Academic Award for the 2012-13 academic year and you don't have to look far to find the Scots. To be eligible for the award, the cumulative annual GPA for the team must exceed a 3.00.  

There were only a total of four MIAA women's programs honored.  In the 2012-13 academic year, Alma's team GPA was a 3.26.

Alma's track record of excellent academic performance is very impressive. The Scots have now received the honor for 13 consecutive years dating back to 2001, including all seven years of Head Coach Jeff Hosler's tenure.

The seven-year streak under Hosler's tutelage is the best in the MIAA. The 13-year active streak is currently third-longest among all Division III women's soccer programs, which includes 438 members. It is also good enough for fourth among all 1,020 NCAA soccer programs in the country.
