ATHENS, Ohio -- The Ohio women's soccer team has once again been awarded the United Soccer Coaches Team Academic Award for the 2016-17 school year.
The Bobcats earned a 3.43 team grade point average.
This is the seventh-straight year that the Bobcats have earned the honor, and the fifth time under current head coach, Aaron Rodgers.
A total of 825 soccer teams (286 men, 539 women) from throughout the United States have earned the USC Team Academic Award for exemplary performance in the classroom as a team during the 2016-17 academic year.
To qualify for the award, the team must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 or higher for the entire academic year. The team GPA is determined by adding every player's GPA, then dividing by the number of players.
