Men's Soccer Team Receives Bronze Award for Ethics/Sportsmanship
The Bridgewater College men's soccer team received the 2011 Ethics/Sportsmanship Bronze Award from the NSCAA - one of the coaching association's highest honors.
A total of 82 teams in the country - men's and women's in Division I, II, and III and junior colleges - received either the Gold, Silver or Bronze version of the Team Ethics Award, which recognizes teams that exhibit fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the Laws of the Game, as reflected by the number of yellow caution cards or red ejection cards they are shown by referees throughout the season. Teams with no red cards and a maximum of five yellows were considered for the Silver Award while teams with no reds and a maximum of 10 yellows were recognized with the Bronze Award.
The Bridgewater College men's team finished the season with just seven yellow cards, tied for the least amount in the ODAC with Roanoke College.
