Posted on January 9th, 2019 by

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – United Soccer Coaches announced on Thursday the Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award recipients for college soccer programs competing in the 2017 fall season and Gustavus was honored at the bronze level. The award recognizes teams for exhibiting fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the laws of the game.

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.

In 18 games this season, the Gusties accumulated two yellow and zero red cards (11%).
