The Suffolk University Women's Soccer team earned a Silver Medal Team Ethics Award from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) for the 2009 season.
Suffolk was one of 45 teams to claim the Silver Award, which is given to teams that accumulate no red cards and a maximum of five yellow cards.
A total of 68 teams received either the Gold, Silver or Bronze version of the Team Ethics Award, which recognizes teams that exhibit fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the Laws of the Game, as reflected by the number of yellow caution cards or red ejection cards they are shown by referees throughout the season.
The Rams were the lone team from the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) on this year's list.
Suffolk earned a gold medal by the NSCAA in 2008 for Team Ethics/Sportsmanship.
Sophomore Leslie Hayden (Ross, Calif.) was named to the GNAC All-Sportsmanship team in 2009 for the second consecutive season. Hayden was also a first team All-Conference selection by the GNAC.
