    FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State women's soccer is one of 10 Division I programs to earn the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Ethics/Sportsmanship award. A total of 66 teams across the nation earned the honor.

    "It is wonderful that our team was recognized by the NSCAA," said Steve Springthorpe. "We have always tried to play with the utmost respect for the game and the individuals involved in the game. Our team gets all the credit for conducting themselves in such a positive manner."

    Fresno State was a bronze winner, which means the Bulldogs recorded between six to 10 yellow cards in the 2008 season.

    Fellow WAC opponent San Jose State also earned the award from the NSCAA. The Bulldogs were one of three Division I schools in California to earn this award.
