Soccer Earns Team Ethics Award
By: Kevin Meinholz, Sports Information Director
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (UWECBlugolds.com) - The UW-Eau Claire soccer team was recently honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America with an ethics award.
The 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.
The Blugolds were one of 45 teams to claim the Silver Award, which is given to teams that accumulate no red cards and a maximum of five yellow cards in a season. UW-Whitewater was the only other school from the WIAC to be honored as well. This is the second time the Blugolds have received the award.
A total of 68 teams earned gold, silver or bronze awards. Nine intercollegiate teams received the NSCAA's Gold Team Ethics Award for completing the entire 2009 season without receiving either a yellow or red card. The Bronze Award went to 14 teams, which is presented to teams that receive no reds and a maximum of 10 yellows.
