- In a record-breaking season on the field, the Frostburg State University women’s soccer team found just as much success off the field. For the first time in program history the program won a National Soccer Coaches Association of America College Team Academic Award. The Bobcats, as a team, carried a 3.10 G.P.A.
In 2003 the Bobcats advanced to the regional semifinals of the NCAA Division III Tournament for the first time in three appearances. They also defended their Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference title as they claimed the regular season championship and won their third straight tournament title.
Another Bobcat who received an individual academic award was junior Karen Kotofski (Northeast/Glen Burnie, Md.) who was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District II Second Team for the second straight season. In 2003, she led the team in both goals and points for the third straight season. An elementary education major, Kotofski carries a 3.776 G.P.A.
“Our number one goal as a program is to achieve academically at the highest level possible,” said head coach Brian Parker. “Our players are committed to academic and athletic success and this award is just one reflection of that commitment.”
