ROUNDUP: Rose women’s soccer wins Team Pinnacle Award | Sports

The Rose-Hulman women’s program has been named one of just 16 college recipients of the United Soccer Coaches College Team Pinnacle Award, according to results released Wednesday by the national organization.

The College Team Pinnacle Award was established three years ago to honor programs that combine fair play, academic and the on-field success components that define a pinnacle quality soccer program.

Of the more than 1,000 programs that play college soccer, just two men’s and 16 women’s programs earned the 2020-21 College Team Pinnacle Award. Honorees must achieve Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze version of the College Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award; earn the College Team Academic Award for outstanding accomplishments in the classroom; and record a winning percentage of .750 or greater during the respective season.
