JACKSON, Miss. -- Men's and Women's Soccer both earned the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Team Academic Award for their exceptional academic performance as a team for the year of 2015-2016.
NSCAA's Team Academic Award was created to recognize student athletes' commitment to excellence in the classroom. To be eligible for the College Team Academic Award, the nominated program must be a current member of NSCAA College Services.
For a team to be considered for the NSCAA Team Academic Award, it must have a composite team grade point average of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) for all team members who appear on the official NCAA, NAIA or junior college roster forms for the fall season. Both men's and women's soccer met this criteria and have been awarded the honor from the NSCAA.
