KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Covenant women's soccer team has been honored with the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Bronze Award for Team Ethics for the 2016 season, announced the association on Thursday (Dec. 22).
In all, 100 college teams received either the Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze version of the Team Ethics Award, which 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.
The Lady Scots are one of 19 teams (both men and women) to claim the Bronze Award, which is given to teams that accumulate a percentage of cards ranging from 31-50 percent based on total number of cards divided by number of matches played.
This is the 10th time since 2001 that Covenant has earned a team ethics honor from the NSCAA.
Covenant finished the year 13-5 overall.
