KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- United Soccer Coaches announced on Wednesday the Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award recipients for high school and college soccer programs competing in the fall season. Today’s awards recognize a total of 167 teams across the country for exhibiting fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the laws of the game.
The Frostburg State University women's soccer program represented the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) on the recognition list as the Bobcats and head coach Brian Parker earned 'Gold' recognition throughout the 2018 season.
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/coaches divided by the team’s total number of games played.
