WSC Soccer Wins Third Straight NSCAA Team Ethics Award
Posted: 04 January, 2013
WAYNE - The Wayne State College women’s soccer team has been selected for the NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) Team Ethics Award, marking the third straight season the Wildcats have won the honor for their clean play on the field. WSC was also just one of nine NCAA Division II schools to receive the award.
The NSCAA Team Ethics 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 they are shown by referees throughout the season.
Wayne State had just four yellow cards during the 2012 season and received the Silver version of the Team Ethics Award. Minnesota State was the only other Northern Sun Conference school along with Wayne State to receive the honor.
“I am proud that for the third year in a row we have been recognized by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America with the Ethics Award,” commented WSC soccer coach Molly Grisham. “This award is a reflection of our ability to play quality soccer with discipline and respect for the game. We are honored to be one of just nine NCAA Division II schools nationally who were honored with this award.”
