The CB Women’s Soccer Team has a strong tradition of excelling on the pitch and in the classroom.

Giving it 110% on the field or court is important for all high school athletes, but working hard in the classroom is just as important. Maintaining steady school grades and participating in a sport can be extremely burdensome, but our 2011-2012 Women’s Varsity Soccer Team proved they are capable of doing such by being awarded the High School Team Academic Award for the fifth consecutive year.

The High School Team Academic Award is an award given to teams by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and requires a team to have a composite team grade point average of at least 3.25 in order to be considered for the award.

Although this is the fifth year in a row Christian Brothers’ Women’s Varsity Soccer Team has achieved this, attaining and maintaining the award is not an easy task.

“It was challenging to have high standards of us on the field and in our school work” says senior player Dalila Arbizu (’13).

According to the players and head coach Mr. Jacob Hunley ‘96, the team has aspirations to make it six in a row.

“Our goal every year is to excel in the classroom,” he says. “The players didn’t know much about the award but knew they were expected to excel in the classroom,” adding that he thinks of the award as a kind of “bonus” to the team’s on the field success.
