The men’s soccer team had a stellar season this fall, earning the No. 9 seed in the NCAA tournament and the opportunity to host the second round of the tourney. The Bisons will play the winner of the Louisville-Western Michigan match at Lipscomb Soccer Complex on Nov. 20. This is the first time in university history that Lipscomb has hosted an NCAA tournament round in any sport.
The Bisons won the ASUN Conference by defeating Central Arkansas in November, after spending much of the season in the top 25 rankings of the United Soccer Coaches National Poll. The team reached a high of No. 10 in October, the highest national ranking by any Lipscomb team.
The Bisons swept the postseason ASUN All-Conference superlative awards and landed 11 on All-Conference teams. Congratulations to Jelldrik Dallman, ASUN Player of the Year; Noah Gulden, ASUN Defensive Player of the Year and Scholar Athlete of the Year; Michael Sibley, ASUN Goalkeeper of the Year; Nick Dang, ASUN Freshman of the Year; and Charles Morrow, who earned ASUN Coach of the Year honors for the third time in his career.
