BRIDGEWATER, Va. – The Bridgewater College women's soccer team has received the Ethics & Sportsmanship Silver Award from the United Soccer Coaches.
This is the seventh consecutive season the Eagles' program has been honored. A total of 143 teams from across the country were recognized for exhibiting fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the laws of the game.
The Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award is given to United Soccer Coaches members at four levels. Teams honored at the platinum level went an entire season without a player or coach receiving a yellow card or red card. Teams honored at the gold (1-10%), silver (11-30%) and bronze (31-50%) levels are based on a percentage calculated by the total number of cards received by players and coaches divided by the team's total number of games played.
Bridgewater received four yellow cards in 21 games.
