Sports Calendar: Homecoming Week
10 Games featuring V-Ball, Soccer, Football
Plus, SAGU Varsity basketball vs. Alumni All-Stars
WAXAHACHIE, Texas -- One of the most exciting times of the school year, Homecoming Week, is underway at Southwestern Assemblies of God University.
A total of 10 collegiate athletic events, along with a pair of basketball exhibitions between the SAGU varsity and Alumni All-Stars, are slated for this week. It is a great opportunity for fans to get a sneak-peak of this year's Lions and Lady Lions as they go up against former Southwestern standouts.
The official introduction of the varsity hoopsters will take place on October 25, when Midnight Madness takes place. It will follow a home volleyball match against Southern Nazarene University.
The volleyball team plays five matches this week, four of them at home. Both the men’s and women’s soccer teams are on the road where they play the top two teams in the Red River Athletic Conference. The games for the Lions are critical if they are to qualify for the RRAC tournament.
Highlighting the week is the football game at 10,000 seat Lumpkins Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Typically the largest crowd of the season is on hand for tailgating, the homecoming court and the game at 2:00pm.
SAGU will take on Haskell University (Kansas) in a contest that will be broadcast in HD by SAGU Sports Live, which is provided at no cost to viewers. A detailed preview of that game will be on-line Friday night.
