The Monmouth University men have earned a 2019-20 United Soccer Coaches Team Academic Award, the organization announced Thursday.

College Team Academic Award recipients register a composite grade point average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale for all players on the roster for the 2019-20 academic year.

“I am really proud of the team for achieving this prestigious award,” Monmouth head coach Robert McCourt said. “This year has been a difficult time for everyone in the world. It is great to see the team get recognized for digging in and achieving such tremendous success in the classroom.”

A total of 889 college teams (333 men, 556 women) earned the award. The Hawks have secured those honors in 10 of the last 12 years.

The women’s team also was recognized with the award, making Monmouth one of 176 schools with both programs honored.
