2019 #ASUNMSOC Season Preview: Lipscomb Bisons

ATLANTA, Ga. - As the 2019 ASUN Men's Soccer season kicks off on August 30th, we take a closer look at each of the seven conference teams as they prepare for the upcoming season. 

The Lipscomb Bisons captured their second-consecutive ASUN Men's Soccer Championship in 2018 becoming the first back-to-back conference champions since 2011-12. Head Coach Charles Morrow earned ASUN Coach of the Year recognition while leading the team to a 10-10-1 overall record. The Bisons advanced to the Sweet Sixteen of the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

Lipscomb will look to continue their success after losing Player of Year Logan Paynter by returning two All-Conference First Team selections (Austin Eager, Noah Gulden) and two All-Freshman team selections (Scott Gulden, Louis Robinson). John Wynia returns for his final season as the active career leader in points and assists. His five assists in 2018 tied for third in the ASUN. Lipscomb's schedule this season includes six teams that finished 2018 ranked in the RPI top-100 and three NCAA Tournament teams. The Bisons begin their challenging 2019 on the road at SMU on Aug. 30th.
