For the ninth straight season, App State women's soccer was named a United Soccer Coaches Team Academic Award winner.
A total of 989 college teams (345 men, 644 women) earned the Team Academic Award, including 255 schools who had both their men's and women's programs among the recipients. Appalachian was among those programs with both its men's and women's teams being honored.
College Team Academic Award recipients are active members of the United Soccer Coaches College Services Program with a composite grade point average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale for all players on the roster for the 2018-19 academic year.
"I am so proud of this group and their continued excellence in the classroom," head coach Sarah Strickland said. "They are high achiever, really hold themselves to the highest standard and consistently represent the "A" in the classroom."
The Mountaineers will return to action on Sunday at 2 p.m. (ET) when they take on Little Rock in the conclusion of a three-match road trip.
