Valparaiso University’s women’s soccer team has been named a recipient of the NSCAA Team Academic Award from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

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 2009-2010 academic year.

This marks the eighth straight year the Crusaders have earned the honor in women’s soccer.

“Once again I am extremely proud of our players for their commitment to the classroom and their ability to represent Valparaiso University in a positive manner,” head coach John Marovich said.

Marovich’s squad posted a 3.27 team GPA, and joined Cleveland State, Green Bay, Loyola, Milwaukee, and Wright State from the Horizon League in receiving the accolade.
