The United Soccer Coaches organization annually recognizes high school soccer programs that have excelled in the classroom, in addition to their performance on the field.
The Baldwin School varsity soccer team was one of 313 teams (107 boys, 206 girls) soccer teams from throughout the United States to earn the Team Academic Award for exemplary performance in the classroom as a team during the 2017-18 academic year.
This is the fourth consecutive year the Polar Bears received the honor. Additionally, Baldwin was the only team in the Inter-Ac League to earn the award.
To qualify for the award, the team must have a minimum grade point average of 3.25 for the entire academic year. The team GPA is determined by adding every player's GPA, then dividing by the number of players. Baldwin varsity soccer had a 3.66 GPA for the 2017-18 academic year.
