KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The 2014-15 Salisbury University men's and women's soccer teams were honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America with the 2014-15 NSCAA College Team Academic Award, as announced by the organization on Thursday morning.
To qualify for the award, a team must maintain a team GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Across the country, 305 men's and 554 women's collegiate soccer teams received the 2014-15 NSCAA College Team Academic Award; but Salisbury is one of just 208 schools that had both its men's and women's teams receive the honor.
The 2014-15 men's soccer team led by Gerry DiBartolo recorded a 12-3-5 season and received an at-large bid into the NCAA postseason tournament. The team also won the regular-season Capital Athletic Conference title.
This marks the eighth season in a row for DiBartolo's squad to be recognized by the NSCAA with the College Team Academic Award.
The 2014-15 women's soccer team led by Kwame Lloyd went 10-6-3 en-route to a CAC tournament berth. At season's end, Lloyd was honored as the CAC Women's Soccer Coach of the Year in his inaugural season with the Sea Gulls.
This is the third time in the last four seasons that the women's soccer team has earned the NSCAA College Team Academic Award.
