PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania field hockey was recently named a recipient of the 2014 Gladiator by SGI NFHCA Academic Team Award by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association.
The National Academic Team Award recognizes those institutions that have achieved a team GPA of 3.0 or higher during the first semester of the 2014-15 academic year.
The 2014 team award is the ninth consecutive for Penn, dating back to 2006.
In addition to the team award, the 2014 Division I National Academic squad will be announced later this month, on March 23. Last year, eight members of the Penn field hockey program were named to the team.
