The 2016 Harris-Stowe Men's and Women's Soccer teams have both been named as NAIA Scholar Teams for the 2016-2017 academic year.  To be considered for the NAIA Scholar-Team award, a team must have a minimum 3.0 grade-point average as defined by the institution. The team grade-point average includes all student-athletes on the eligibility certificate.


The men's team finished the year with an Athletics Department high 3.3 GPA.  The Hornets were led by three senior NAIA Daktronics Scholar Athletes:  Youssef Abedo Jacon, Thomas Carapaica, and Mozart Garcia, Jr.  The Hornets Men's Soccer team produced seven members on the American Midwest Conference Academic All-Conference team.  Former Head Coach Scott Hartwig, "I am extremely proud of the academic standards Men's Soccer has set, maintained and repeated over the past couple of years. While the guys work hard physically on the field, they constantly strive toward academic success outside of games and practices. Graduation is the ultimate goal".


The women's team finished the year with a 3.11 GPA.  Two Hornets received the NAIA Daktronics Scholar Athlete Award: Colbee Miller and Dominique Tedesco.  The Hornets had seven players on the AMC Academic All-Conference Team.  Head Coach Scot Vorwold, "This is an achievement that the team strives for every year.  We have a very intelligent and hard working group of young ladies and this is something we expect to accomplish each year."
