KANSAS CITY, Kan. (11/21/13) - The Princeton men's and women's soccer teams have been recognized by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) with Team Academic Awards for its outstanding achievement in the classroom.

Princeton is one of just 182 schools across all three Divisions that had both its men's and women's programs recognized by the NSCAA for having team grade point averages of 3.0 of higher during the 2012-13 academic year.

Both programs had cumulative team GPAs of 3.14 during the 2012-13 academic year.

The Princeton men capped the 2012 season with an 8-6-2 record and was 4-1-2 in the Ivy League. The team had the Ivy League Rookie of the Year in 2012 in Thomas Sanner and had two players named first-team All-Ivy League and one on the second team. Mark Linnville completed the amazing feat of earning first-team honors all four years and Matt Sanner captured his fourth consecutive All-Ivy honor.

The 2013 teams will be eligible for the award next year, after the completion of the 2013-14 academic year.

The 2012 campaign saw Princeton's women finish 14-4-1, including a perfect 7-0-0 in Ivy League play and the program's first NCAA tournament win away from campus as the Tigers defeated West Virginia to move on to the Round of 32. Princeton saw Jen Hoy earn Ivy League Player of the Year honors and be named an NSCAA second-team All-America. Five Tigers earned first-team All-Ivy League recognition.
