Seventh year head soccer coach Anne Moore and the University of Wyoming soccer team began fall practice today, Aug. 11 at 10:30 a.m. at the North Forty practice facility. Moore welcomes back seven starters and ten letterwinners from the most successful team in Wyoming history.

All practices will be held at the North Forty practice facility and are open to the public. Coach Moore and selected Cowgirls will be available at media day from 3-3:30 p.m., on Friday, Aug. 12.
"We have been building up to this moment since the end of last season and everyone is excited to finally get to work," said Moore."We have a very strong group of returning players and a lot of talented newcomers. It will be exciting to get out there and put it all together."
