KANSAS CITY, Miss. - The VMI women's soccer team was named as a silver recipient of the National Soccer Coaches' Association of America (NSCAA) Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award, according to information released by the organization recently.
The Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award is given to NSCAA members at four levels. Teams honored at the platinum level went an entire season without a player or coach receiving a yellow card or red card. Teams honored at the gold (1-10%), silver (11-30%) and bronze (31-50%) levels are based on a percentage calculated by the total number of cards received by players/coaches divided by the team’s total number of games played.
The Keydets were one of 164 teams to earn one of the awards.
