CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- The Harvard women's soccer team was recently honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America with its Team Academic Award for the 2009-10 academic year.

To be eligible for the award, a team must own a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or better. The Crimson surpassed that mark and posted a 3.40 overall GPA during the 2009-10 academic year.

Harvard players have been honored individually for their academic success this season, as Melanie Baskind received a nod to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America second team, as well as the Academic All-District first team this season.  Katherine Sheeleigh also earned a spot on the Academic All-District squad, as she was tabbed to the second team.
