ABILENE, Texas –
Hardin-Simmons' men's soccer team opened up fall practices on an unseasonably cool morning at the HSU Soccer Complex on Thursday.

The Cowboys welcomed 37 players to the field and the team went through a conditioning test and also an intrasquad scrimmage. HSU has 22 returners from last year's team that went to the NCAA Tournament.

"Every year is a new year," said HSU head coach Dan Heger. "We have to mix in the newcomers with the returners and see who fits where. They came back with great attitudes, they are confident and we will see what we can build with this team."

HSU is the two-time defending ASC champions and will take the field for the first time on Sept. 4 against Brandeis at Trinity.
