KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The University of California San Diego women's soccer program has earned a 2017 Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award from the United Soccer Coaches, as announced on Thursday.

The awards recognize a total of 162 high school and college men's and women's teams across the country for exhibiting fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the laws of the game during the 2017 fall season.

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 and coaches, divided by the team's total number of games played.

UC San Diego head coach Brian McManus' Tritons garnered the Silver Award, on the basis of collecting just six yellow cards over its 22 matches (27%).

Of the 162 teams recognized, 103 were from the college ranks. UC San Diego was the lone California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) representative, and with the Montana State Billings women, one of two from the NCAA Division II West Region.

UC San Diego finished with a 17-2-3 overall record in 2017, as the CCAA regular-season, CCAA Tournament and West Region treble winner.
