The University of Houston-Victoria women's soccer team was recognized this week as a National Soccer Coaches Association of America academic team, while two members of the UHV men's soccer team were named to the NSCAA NAIA/NCCAA Men's Scholar All-South Regional Academic Team.
The UHV women's soccer team compiled a 3.18 grade point average for the 2015-2016 school year and were one of 918 soccer teams from throughout the United States to earn the NSCAA Team Academic Award for exemplary performance in the classroom as a team.
To qualify for the award, the team must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher for the entire academic year. The team GPA is determined by adding every player's GPA, then dividing by the number of players.
Watt, a business major from Montrose, Scotland, compiled a 3.49 GPA, while Hannigan, a business major from Sutton Surrey, England, compiled a 3.39 GPA during the 2015-16 school year. They were two of the 19 players selected to the All-South Region Team.
