Indiana Wesleyan University women’s soccer coach John Bratcher has received the National Intercollegiate Soccer Officials Association’s 2006 Collegiate National Merit Award, the school announced Monday. Bratcher was given the award Friday at National Soccer Coaches Association of America convention in Indianapolis.

Each year, the National Merit Award is given to one college coach and one high school coach in the nation who the NISOA recognizes as reflective of the highest standards of professional and ethical behavior.

The Wildcats won their ninth consecutive Mid-Central Conference championship in 2006. Bratcher earned his 400th career victory during the season and was named MCC Coach of the Year for the fourth time in as many seasons with Indiana Wesleyan.

Bratcher is a member of the National Christian College Athletic Association Hall of Fame with a career record of 411-175-38.
