The Morehead State soccer program has once again earned a Team Academic Award from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. The award, which celebrates achievements during the 2013-14 school year, marks the seventh time overall and fifth consecutive year MSU has earned this honor.

MSU was one of six Ohio Valley Conference teams earning this year's accolade. Soccer also claimed the honor in 2002-03, 2006-07, 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13.

"We stress the importance of being great students and great athletes," Head Coach Warren Lipka said. "I am very proud of our program for accomplishing this mark again."

To qualify, a team must compile a minimum 3.0 grade point average for a specific school year.

The 2013 team claimed the OVC Tournament Championship and made the program's second NCAA Tournament appearance.
