KANSAS CITY, MO -- The Oberlin and Hiram women's soccer teams were recipients of the 2019 College Team Ethics and Sportsmanship award, announced by the United Soccer Coaches.
The organization divided its awards into four groups – Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. 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 and coaches divided by the team's total number of games played.
Oberlin was recognized as a silver award recipient, while Hiram earned the bronze award. A total of 143 teams across the country at the high school and college levels were recognized for fair play. The Yeowomen earned just four yellow cards throughout their 19-game 2019 schedule. Additionally, Hiram was tagged with just six cards in 19 contests.
