Women's soccer honored for ethical play in 2010January 7, 2011
Brevard, N.C. - The Brevard College women’s soccer team was honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) for their sportsmanship on the field in the 2010 season. The Tornados were awarded with the Bronze version of the Team Ethics Award by the NSCAA.
The NCSAA Team Ethics Awards recognize teams that exhibit fair play, sporting behavior and follow the Laws of the Game. These teams are chosen by the number of yellow caution cards or red ejection cards they are shown by referees throughout the season. Just 73 teams across the nation received this prestigious honor, including all divisions and levels of intercollegiate soccer.
Brevard was one of 18 teams to receive the Bronze version of the award. The Bronze version of the award is garnered by being shown a maximum of 10 yellow cards and no red cards throughout the course of the entire season. The Tornados were shown just nine yellow cards throughout the season displaying their adherence to the Laws of the Game and exhibition of fair play within the 2010 season. Brevard was the only member of the South Atlantic Conference to receive an NSCAA Team Ethics Award.
