"Receiving the NSCAA Academic Award this year is an honor for the team, athletic department and the resources we have available for our outstanding academic center." North Texas Head Coach John Hedlund said. " I am proud of our student-athletes and all the hard work and dedication it takes to achieve this award."
The NSCAA annually hands out the academic honor to Division I schools whose team grade point average is a 3.0 or higher and the most recent accolade is for the 2009-10 academic year.
The Mean Green, who posted a 3.30 team GPA this past spring have now earned at least a 3.0 team GPA three years in a row. Additionally, the women's soccer team's APR (Academic Progress Report) has been ranked in the top 10% nationally three out of the last four years.
