DURHAM, N.H. - The University of New Hampshire women's soccer team won the athletic department's Life Skills Competition for the second straight year in the 2002-03 academic season, with much of the success attributed to two things - an emphasis on goal setting and strength as a team to focus on achieving an objective.
Once again, they set their goals high at the beginning of the academic year and amidst their normal academic rigor and athletic demands, they achieved beyond everyone's expectation.
The women's soccer players ranked third highest in voluntary community service, (giving back to the community) and first in the Athletes Supporting Athletes (being supportive of fellow Wildcats and their teams) category. The team had one of the highest point totals in Team Programming (team educational opportunities) and remained untouchable in the Student-Athlete Athletics Council Communication (leadership/ communication) category.
UNH women's soccer players form a very well-rounded team that has its priorities in the right places. This year they once again reminded everyone in the athletic department that the heart of this competition is about more than just points.
