PORTALES — The Eastern New Mexico University women’s soccer team has been awarded the 2010 National Soccer Coaches Association Team Ethics/Sportsmanship Silver Award for their play last season.

To be eligible, a team must have five or fewer yellow cards and no red cards throughout the season. The Zias were called for two yellow cards in 2010.

This is the third consecutive year the team has received the award.
