VESTAL, N.Y.—Binghamton women’s soccer extended its streak of academic achievement with accolades from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. The NSCAA listed the Bearcats among its Team Academic recipients for producing a 3.0 or higher GPA during the 2011-12 school year.
Head coach Sarah McClellan’s squad had a 3.41 GPA, second-highest in the America East. It marked the 11th straight year that the women’s soccer program eclipsed the 3.0- threshold.
“We are very proud of our student-athletes here at Binghamton; our women’s soccer program continues to strive for excellence both on the field and in the classroom,” McClellan said. “This honor demonstrates the strong commitment and hard work of our student-athletes, and I applaud their efforts.”
The Bearcats had back-to-back road wins to end the 2012 season and finished with an 8-8-1 record.
The men’s soccer team also earned national academic honors, giving Binghamton the distinction of having both soccer programs in the elite group. Only one other America East program (UMBC) and 148 across the country (out of more than 800) achieved the soccer “double.”
