Waxahachie, TX – The Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) Lady Lions volleyball team took on the Wiley College Wildcats in afternoon action at the Sheaffer Center Gymnasium on the campus of SAGU.

Such was Tuesday afternoon volleyball for SAGU (6-3, 0-0) as they beat the Wildcats (4-2, 0-0) by scores of 25-14, 17-25, 25-23, 25-23.

Moore’s Musings

  • On the win : “There is good news and bad news. We played about as bad as we could is the bad news. The good news is we still managed to scrape out a win.
  • On the match : “We [the coaching staff] mixed up the lineup in the 3 rd and 4 th set in order to jumpstart our mindset and create some offense. Classes begin tomorrow and new student orientation has sapped some energy so we may have been a little distracted.”
