The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) has once again recognized the academic excellence of the Catholic Memorial High School (CMH) varsity girls’ soccer team. For the 14th consecutive year, CMH will receive the NSCAA/adidas Academic All-American Team Award.
The NSCAA gives this award to teams that demonstrate “exemplary performance in the classroom.” The Varsity girls’ soccer team at Catholic Memorial earned one of the highest grade point averages of all schools in the country with a 3.74 average G.P.A. during the 2011-2012 school year. The NSCAA will recognize the team at the NSCAA national convention in Indianapolis, Ind. this January.
The Catholic Memorial girls’ soccer team is one of only seven girls’ soccer teams in the country, and the only one in Wisconsin, to have won 14 consecutive Academic All-American Team Awards. The other schools who have won 14 consecutive awards consist of schools from Pennsylvania, Colorado, Virginia, Texas, and two from New Jersey.
The CMH girls’ soccer team has also excelled on the field over the years, winning 12 conference titles, 8 WISAA and WIAA state championships, and a NSCAA national championship.
In addition, the girls on the soccer team continue their service to the handicapped children of Waukesha County through the TOPSoccer program which will begin its tenth year in January 2013.
