Waxahachie, Texas- March 1, 2016- The Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC) has released the 2015-2016 All-Conference Team and two SAGU players have been honored, as well as one receiving the Sportsmanship Award.  Junior Charity Page has been named to the Second Team and senior Taylor Hill has been named to the Third Team and with the overall Sportsmanship Award.

Charity Page is a 6’0 forward from Nacogdoches, Texas. Page averages 11 points and eight rebounds per game.  In the entire NAIA, Page ranks no. 24 in total rebounds with 228 for the season. She is also the current SAC Player-of-the-Week.  For season highs, Page scored 22 points against St. Thomas and had 16 rebounds against Mid-America Christian.

“Charity has worked hard all season to be one of the best post players in the league,” says head coach Tiffany Phillips , “I feel like she has really developed her inside game this season and become a force for our team. She deserves this honor and I know that it will only make her work harder and want more”

Taylor Hill was given Third-Team All-Conference honors.  Hill is a 5’6 guard from Waxahachie, Texas.  Hill leads the Lady Lions in scoring with nearly 12 points per game.  She also averages three assists per game.  For the season, Hill ranks no. four in the NAIA in free throw percent, shooting for 87%. She is 81-of-93 for free throws.

Hill was also honored with the SAC Sportsmanship Award.  The NAIA had five core values: integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship and servant leadership.  In order to win the Sportsmanship Award, one must show those character traits on and off the field.

Phillips believes Hill is the perfect athlete for the award, “No one is more deserving than Taylor. She is an extremely hard worker both on and off the court. She is a great teammate, always encouraging and is always positive and I could not be more proud of all that she has accomplished this year. She has a very bright future and I am proud that I was able to be her coach for this one year. I wish I had more with her. She is a special player and a special young lady.”

The Lady Lions will begin post-season play when SAGU plays J ohn Brown University at 2:15pm at the Sheaffer Center Gymnasium.  In the past two contests, JBU has swept SAGU (62-59OT, 71-67).
