Huddling with Hason

“I am very proud of how we played against one of the best teams in the NAIA. It was unfortunate we did not take advantage of a couple of scoring opportunities early on in the match. We had great focus today and the JBU scoring opportunities were the result of turnovers not their play.”

The Next Step

In a week of long road trips SAGU will travel to McPherson, KS for a Wednesday match against Central Christian College of Kansas. After returning to Waxahachie the Lady Lions will head to Goodwell, OK for a Saturday match with Oklahoma Panhandle State University. Central Christian is one game ahead of SAGU in the SAC standings and Panhandle and SAGU are tied in the conference standings.

As a leading Christian university, SAGU educates and prepares individuals who want to serve Christ and others. SAGU helps students discover and develop their God-given callings in a Spirit-empowered, learning community.

We believe in affordable tuition, made possible in part through the financial support of donors who embrace the mission of SAGU and the importance of affordable, accredited programs to train Christians for leadership in ministry, business, education, and service.

Most majors are available in-person in Waxahachie, TX, and online through a wide range of associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees.
