DOVER, Del. - In recognition of being one of just 11 schools across all NCAA divisions to earn the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Gold Award for team ethics, the Wesley College women's soccer team enjoyed a night and dessert with President William N. Johnston, and his wife Susan, at their home on Tuesday night.  

The Gold Award is given to programs that do not receive a red or yellow card all season.  The NSCAA places schools in three different categories - Gold, Silver and Bronze - based on the number of cards given to each school throughout the season.

The night also served in honor of the Wolverines' 3.31 grade-point average for the Fall 2012 semester, the highest team GPA for any Wesley team this semester.

Not only were the Wolverines good sports on the field and in the classroom, Wesley also saw success on the field. The Wolverines finished the 2012 season with an 8-8-2 overall record and advanced to the CAC Tournament, where they fell in the first round in a shootout.  It was the first time since 2007 that Wesley finished the season at .500 or better.
