The Young Harris College women’s soccer team finished the fall semester with the highest overall team grade point average announced Monday by Director of Athletics, Randy Dunn.

The women’s soccer team earned a 3.37 team G.P.A. for the Fall 2010 semester.  In addition to their success in the classroom, the team completed its first season against four-year colleges with a winning record of 10 wins, 5 losses, and 2 ties.

“These young ladies inspire me every day!” head coach Kathy Brown said. “What more could a coach ask for?”

Members of the women’s team also displayed how much pride they each take in the student aspect of the term student/athlete.

“I feel like it is well deserved. We take our game and our school work very seriously,” said sophomore Linda Lehmann.

“I am honored to be a freshman and on such a well-rounded team,” said freshman Hayden Verner. “This shows me that school is just as important as soccer.”

The women’s soccer team was not the only team to achieve success in the classroom. Women’s cross country was a very close second with a 3.28 GPA., while men’s soccer was third with a 3.17. Following the Mountain Lion men’s soccer program was softball (3.1), men’s cross country (3.09) and women’s golf (3.08).
