This past week the Penncrest Lady Lions Soccer Team was awarded the NSCAA Team Academic Award with a team GPA of 3.60. They are one of 251 girl’s teams across the country, and 1 of 20 PA HS girls’ soccer teams to receive the award.
To qualify for the award, the team must have a minimum grade point average of 3.25 for the entire academic year. The team GPA is determined by adding every player's GPA, then dividing by the number of players.
On the soccer field the Lady Lions continued their strong play over the past week. After dropping their first match of the season in OT 2-1 to Strath Haven they posted a win against Radnor and a tie against top ranked District 1 AAA Conestoga 2-2. This moves the team record to W9-L1-T3. The team is striving to grab one of the top spots in the District 1 AAA playoff seedings.
The girls celebrated Senior Night this Thursday (10/13/2016) under the lights with a 7 PM home game against Central League opponent Marple Newtown.
