The Canisius College women's soccer team was honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America for the fifth consecutive year, as the team earned the 2012 NSCAA Team Academic Award for academic excellence.

"I am extremely proud of the girls efforts in the classroom," said head coach Jim Wendling. "It is the fifth straight year that our program has been honored with this award since I arrived. They understand what a great value getting a college education means at Canisius."

The Golden Griffins posted a team GPA of 3.10 for the 2011-12 academic year with the selection of 10 student-athletes to the MAAC All-Academic Team.
