Rider Honored for Ethics/Sportsmanship

LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ—The Rider University women’s soccer team was honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America for its Sportsmanship.

The 2013 Broncs (9-8-1) went the entire season without receiving a red card, and only compiled four yellow cards all year.

For that the Broncs were presented the Silver version of the College Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award by the NSCAA.

"This past season the players demonstrated a true respect for the competitive nature of sport by accepting the challenges that they were faced with the highest levels of sportsmanship and ethical behavior,” said Rider head coach Drayson Hounsome.

A total of 159 teams, men and women, claimed the Silver Award, which is given to teams that accumulate no red cards and a maximum of five yellow cards. Gold Award winners went the entire season without any cards.

“The 2013 season was the fewest yellow cards the program has received in a season so it is rewarding for the program and athletic department to be recognized by the NSCAA,” Hounsome said.

Rider won a MAAC playoff game this season before losing to the eventual champion, Monmouth, in the semifinals.
