For the sixth year in a row, the Minnesota women's soccer program earned a NSCAA Team Academic Award after combining for a 3.48 GPA during the 2011-12 academic year. The Gophers finished among the top 50 out of 498 women's teams that qualified for the accolade and had the second-highest academic finish of all Big Ten teams.
"It is a testament to how our girls focus both on and off the field and that they understand they are here for education first," said head coach Stefanie Golan. "They have demonstrated a commitment to excellence in both facets of their University of Minnesota life."
To qualify for the award, a collegiate team must post a grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
