KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Capital University women's soccer team was named one of the recipients of the NSCAA Team Academic Award, recognizing team scholastic success for the 2013-14 school year.

A total of 861 collegiate soccer teams (279 men, 582 women) posted a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher, thereby earning the NSCAA Team Academic Award for the 2013-14 academic year.

To qualify for the award, the team must have a minimum grade point average of 3.25 for the entire academic year. The team GPA is determined by adding every player's GPA, then dividing by the number of players.

The Crusaders put together a team grade point average of 3.30 over the qualifying time period.

"It is always a terrific thing when your successes, both on the field and off the field, are recognized," said head coach Chris Kouns. "This is the fourth consecutive year we've earned the NSCAA Team Academic Award and it provides further confirmation that we are living our core values of excellence in the classroom on the soccer field and in life."
