Head Coach Ken Risley recently learned that the 2018 Middlesex Boys' Soccer team was awarded the 2018-19 National High School Team Academic Award by the United Soccer Coaches. The nominations were due by September of 2019 to allow for the calculating of the year-long academic averages and the inclusion of the parts of the country that play their soccer seasons in the winter and spring. The application included calculating the grade point averages for the 20 rostered team members, including 36 unweighted AP courses taken by 15 upperclassmen, as well as the on-field team accomplishments.
The United Soccer Coaches, formerly known as the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), has more than 30,000 members across the country and this prestigious academic award caps the accolades for the undefeated 2018 Middlesex Boys' Soccer team that went 18-0-3 while winning both the ISL championship and the New England Class B Championship.
Congratulations to all of the boys who contributed to this prestigious team honor!!
