KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Twenty-five college teams and 15 fall high school teams earned the NSCAA’s Gold Team Ethics Award for completing the entire 2013 season without receiving either a yellow or red card.

Ottawa University women’s soccer team earned the award for the second straight season.

The Lady Braves earned the Bronze Award, finishing the season with only six yellow cards, just one card away from earning a Silver Award.

The honor recognizes teams that exhibit fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the laws of the game, as reflected by the number of yellow caution cards or red ejection cards they are shown by referees throughout the season.

In all, 254 college teams received either the gold, silver or bronze version of the College Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award.

A total of 78 high school teams competing during the fall received either the gold, silver or bronze version of the inaugural High School Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award.
