The Worcester Preparatory School girls’ soccer team members are recipients of the U.S. Coaches Team Academic Award and the Team Pinnacle Award for the 2019-20 academic year.
Coached by Carol Hartnett and Allison Bescak, this is the fourth year the team has earned the Team Academic Award, which recognizes student-athletes for their commitment to achievement on the field and in the classroom.
This is the first time WPS girls’ soccer has received the Team Pinnacle Award. It is one of only 33 teams (24 high school and nine college teams) nationwide that were honored, of which only three were from Maryland. The Team Pinnacle Award was initiated two years ago to recognize teams that achieve a high level of fair play, educational excellence and success on the pitch.
To be considered for this award, teams must have previously received the Team Academic Award, earned a Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award, and achieved a winning percentage of .750 or higher during the respective season.
