Lady Lion Review

  • A straight set loss is a rarity for the Lady Lions. Losing in straight sets has only happened 4 times in the previous two years with two of those losses coming at the hands of NCAA Division II Biola University.
  • In set one the Lady Lions hit .259. Unfortunately, Bellevue hit .500 for the set.
  • The largest lead for either team was 4 points in the three sets.
  • The stats reflect the tightness of the match in attack errors 16-17, serve aces 6-7, digs 35-36, blocks, 5-5 between SAGU and Bellevue respectively

Moore’s Musings

  • On playing Bellevue : “Our student-athletes worked very hard and I am proud of the effort. We had a difficult time putting the ball away against a top 25 volleyball team.”
  • On starting the year in two tournaments : “A 5-3 record is not where we wanted to be, however, the competition was excellent, we were seen by eight raters, and hopefully people have a better awareness of SAGU and Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC) volleyball. I feel that we accomplished the goals we had in mind when we scheduled these tournaments. We beat a top 20 preseason team. We lost by eight points to another top 25 preseason team and were within two swings of beating Doane. No one gave Bellevue any better fight than we did this weekend. Our freshmen have grown playing against excellent competition. We will be very competitive in our conference if we play like we have the past two weekends.

The Next Step

SAGU (5-3, 0-0) play non-conference opponent Wiley College on Tuesday at 1:00 for their home opener. Then the I-35 tour continues as SAGU will go north for the third weekend in a row to begin SAC play on Thursday, September 5 th against Langston University and Saturday, September 7 th against Central Christian College (KS).

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.
