Team rosters taking shape as first season approaches

WAXAHACHIE, Texas  --  The newest teams to the Southwestern Assemblies of God University athletic family, Cross Country, announced yesterday the addition of a fifth meet for the men's and women's teams.

Head Coach Jason Covarrubias, who holds the reigns of both squads, accepted an offer to compete in the University of Dallas Invitational. The date for the meet is slated for Saturday morning, October 19.

It also gives SAGU three consecutive weekends with a date for the 'running of the Lions,' including Oct. 12, 19 and 26.

The University of Dallas, which is located in Irving, is a member of the NCAA's Division III. Like SAGU, they have five meets that lead up to their conference championship event.

SAGU's entire schedule is posted on-line at www.sagu.edu/athletics.

The Purple Pride will report to camp on Monday, August 12, joining football, volleyball and both soccer teams on campus. They are preparing for their inaugural season, which begins on Saturday, September 7, with a meet in Abilene, Texas.

Coach Covarrubias has also released the current rosters for the Lady Lions and Lions. They are subject to change and could grow with additional newcomers.
