NSU soccer teams ready to go for 2012

Northeastern State men’s soccer coach Rob Czlonka has announced 31 student-athletes have reported for fall preseason camp.

“The guys have all reported today, and we’re eager to get started,” Czlonka said. “We’re excited about the move to the MIAA, and we think this is going to be a fun season.”

The men’s soccer program will begin practice Friday, and the team will train for one week before opening its exhibition campaign in Tulsa. The team will face Oral Roberts at 4 p.m. Aug. 17.

“We have a great group of guys coming in, and they are all eager to show what they can do to help the team,” Czlonka said.

The RiverHawks will have a home exhibition match against Oklahoma Baptist at 7 p.m. Aug. 24 at DeLoache Field. The annual Green and White exhibition game is scheduled for 7 p.m. Aug. 28, and the team will open the regular season portion of its schedule at Missouri-St. Louis at 7 p.m. Aug. 31.

Northeastern State’s women’s soccer team had 38 players report to campus Wednesday in preparation for the 2012 season.

“I am looking forward to beginning the year in a new conference with the MIAA,” said NSU coach Chase Wooten. “We will be a much younger, talented team, with 20 new players joining our 18 returners.“

Training will begin at Dr. Dan DeLoache Field on Friday at 8:30 a.m. Beginning practices will consist of a morning and evening session for the first five days.

“The next few days will consist of the team getting acclimated to one another,” Wooten said. “They will fitness test and scrimmage. I’m looking forward to getting the year started and to have the team back on campus.”

The RiverHawks will kick off their season with a scrimmage at Southern Nazarene University at 7 p.m. on Aug. 23. Their regular season schedule will begin away at Oklahoma Baptist on Aug. 30.
