Baylor Soccer Hosts Houston Dash for Thursday’s Meet The Bears Event

WACO, Texas – With the 2016 season rapidly approaching, Baylor soccer will host its annual Meet The Bears event Thursday as BU faces the National Women’s Soccer League’s Houston Dash in a 6 p.m. CT exhibition match.  Free and open to the public, the festivities at Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field will begin at 5:30 p.m.

The evening will feature the Bears in one of two home exhibition tilts before the regular season kicks off Aug. 19 at Detroit Mercy. Fans will have a chance to see how the 2016 Bears are shaping up. Free pizza and drinks will be served throughout the evening. Fans will also be able to pick up free schedule posters. Following the match, fans will get to partake in an autograph session with the team.

The Bears reported to preseason camp Aug. 2 and host their other exhibition match on Aug. 13 at 7 p.m. against Houston Baptist.  Baylor is coming off a 9-6-4 (4-1-2 Big 12, second place) campaign in 2015 in which its season ended in the semifinals at the Big 12 Championship. Baylor returns 22 players, including eight starters, while welcoming 10 newcomers for the 2016 season.
