Kansas City, Mo. (12/21/17) - The Kean University women's soccer program was one of 49 nationally across all NCAA divisions and community colleges to earn this year's United Soccer Coaches College Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Silver Award, announced by the National Soccer Coaches' Association of America.
The award recognizes teams that exhibit fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the laws of the game, as reflected by the number of yellow caution cards or red ejection cards accumulated throughout the season divided by the number of games played. Kean was assessed only two yellow cards in a total of 19 games to qualify for the Silver Award.
In all, 103 teams received either the Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze version of the College Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award.
