Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) volleyball team John Brown University Emmalee Smith

Smith broke the record in the third set, making the play on an impressive hit by JBU.  “Being the all-time leader in digs is something I am very excited about it. I have been working towards breaking the record all season. Breaking this record is the biggest thing in my volleyball career,” says Smith.

Set one was neck and neck.  SAGU went on a four-point run at the end of the set.  Freshman Kali Shaw had two kills in a row but it wasn’t enough.  JBU won the first set 25-22.

SAGU rallied in set two, topping the Golden Eagles 25-20.  Unfortunately the Lady Lions lost the final two sets of the match.

On a night that honored Smith’s mom’s battle with Colon Cancer, Smith had an impressive game, earning 26 digs.  Four other players had double digit digs; Shaw had 19, freshman Celi Bruce added 18, senior Caitlin Paschall had 16 and senior Katie Ryan added 11.

Paschall had 42 assists for the Lady Lions.  Shaw had 13 kills, sophomore’s Summer Skillern and Mollie McBride each added 12 kills.

After SAGU’s loss, the Lady Lions stayed in the no. five spot in the Sooner Athletic Conference , right behind JBU in the no. four spot.

On Saturday, October 24, 2015, SAGU will host Bacone College (0-22 overall and 0-11 in the SAC).  Game time is scheduled for 1:00pm.
