SEWARD, Neb. – Recently the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) named the Concordia University men’s soccer program one of its 2015-16 College Team Academic Award winners. Head coach Jason Weides’ 2015-16 squad posted a collective 3.37 team grade point average.
A total of 914 soccer teams (324 men, 590 women) from throughout the United States earned the NSCAA Team Academic Award for exemplary performance in the classroom as a team during the 2015-16 academic year. Among these programs were 236 schools receiving honors for both their men and women's teams. 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.
The 2015-16 Bulldogs work in the classroom produced the sixth highest GPA among all NAIA men’s soccer programs. They were also named a NAIA Scholar-Team and tied for the GPAC lead for most NAIA Scholar-Athletes with seven.
