Skyhawks recognized for academic excellence
EASTON, Mass. (October 10, 2019) – The 2018-19 Stonehill College men's soccer team was awarded their seventh-straight Team Academic Award, as announced by the United Soccer Coaches last week.
The award, which was initiated in the 1996, honors collegiate and high school men's and women's soccer teams that displayed excellence in the classroom during the school year by maintaining at least a 3.00 cumulative team grade-point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale.
United Soccer Coaches recognized 999 teams, 347 men and 652 women. Stonehill College was one of 259 schools to have both their men's and women's programs honored this year. This is the second year that both Stonehill soccer programs have received the award in the programs' histories.
The Skyhawks join Bentley University, the University of New Haven, the College of Saint Rose, and Southern New Hampshire University as the Northeast-10 Conference teams to make the list this year.
The 2018-19 men's squad finished with a 6-8-2 overall mark and a 5-7-1 NE10 record, just missing out on playoffs.
The 2019-20 squad will host No. 4 Adelphi University on Saturday, October 12 with an 11:00 a.m. kickoff on Skyhawk Field.
