The Lancaster High boys and girls soccer teams received national recognition for their academic success during last school year — only 61 schools across the nation received honors for both their boys and girls teams.
And only nine of the 386 soccer teams named nationally were from South Carolina.
The Academic Award came from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America for exemplary academic performance during the 2010-11 school year.
The average GPA for the Lancaster High girls team was 4.4, and the average GPA for the boys team was 3.4.
Congratulations to the teams and to their coach, Bo Sylvia.
