The Webster University women's soccer team was among the schools recognized by the United Soccer Coaches for their sportsmanship this past fall, receiving the Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Silver Award. Webster was one of just 103 schools across all collegiate divisions to be honored.
This marks the sixth consecutive year that Webster, coached by Luigi Scire, has been honored with the award and the 10th time in program history. The Gorloks are the only representative from the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference to meet the award criteria.

The Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award is given to United Soccer Coaches members at four levels. Teams honored at the platinum level went an entire season without a player or coach receiving a yellow card or red card. Teams honored at the gold (1-10%), silver (11-30%) and bronze (31-50%) levels are based on a percentage calculated by the total number of cards received by players/coaches divided by the team's total number of games played.
The 10 college teams in the platinum category will be formally acknowledged at the College Coaches Awards Reception on January 18 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown Independence Ballroom in conjunction with the 2018 United Soccer Coaches Convention. The seven high school teams receiving platinum distinction will be honored at the High School Coaches Breakfast on January 20 at Philadelphia Marriott Downtown Liberty Ballroom.
