UNG Women's Soccer Earns NSCAA Team Ethics & Sportsmanship Award

KANSAS CITY, Kansas – (UNGAthletics.com) – The University of North Georgia women's soccer team was one of the 254 men's and women's soccer teams across all three NCAA divisions, the NAIA and junior colleges to be recognized with the NSCAA Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award.  The award is divided into gold, silver and bronze levels. 

The honor 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. 

Within the Peach Belt Conference, Columbus State University and Georgia College were given silver honors while Flagler, Georgia Southwestern State University and UNG were given bronze.

Gold honors were given to those teams that had no cards accumulated during the season while silver was awarded to teams with no red cards and no more than five yellow cards.  Bronze was presented to teams with no more than 10 cards accumulated during the season.

North Georgia wrapped up the 2013 season with a 12-5-1 overall record and 7-3-1 mark in Peach Belt Conference play.
