KANSAS CITY, Kan. – For the 11th consecutive year, Marshall women’s soccer has earned the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) College Women’s Team Academic Award. The award marks the 2012-13 academic year.

To qualify for the award, a team must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. The 2012-13 Thundering Herd earned a 3.47 GPA, the second-highest Conference USA team GPA behind Middle Tennessee (3.62). Marshall is one of 600 collegiate women’s soccer teams throughout NCAA Divisions I-III to receive the award.

The Herd has earned the award for each of coach Kevin Long’s five seasons at Marshall (since 2008).

“It’s another example of the team thriving off a great season on the field,” Long said. “Their hard work has continued to pay off both on the field and off. I’m extremely proud of all that they’ve accomplished.”
