LOS ANGELES – For the fourth consecutive year, both the UCLA men's and women's soccer teams have qualified for the United Soccer Coaches College Team Academic Award, recognizing exemplary performance in the classroom during the 2020-21 academic year.

UCLA is one of just 90 schools NCAA-wide, and one of only three Pac-12 institutions (Washington, Oregon State), to have both its men's and women's teams recognized.

The Bruin women have won the award 10 consecutive seasons and in every year of head coach Amanda Cromwell's tenure. At 3.28, the Bruins logged a team GPA over 3.25 for the second straight year.

The UCLA men posted a 3.20 team GPA, and have now qualified for the award in four consecutive seasons (including twice in as many years under head coach Ryan Jorden).

College Team Academic Award recipients are active members of the United Soccer Coaches College Services Program with a composite GPA of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale for all players on the roster.
