The Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) Head Softball Coach, Sarah Harman, has announced her resignation. Harman, who led the Lady Lions softball program from 2015-2018, is leaving SAGU to become the Head Coach at Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana .

SAGU Athletic Director, Jesse Godding, stated, “SAGU will be forever grateful to Coach Harman for her time here. The stability and vision she brought to the program has established SAGU softball and provides a launching point for the next coach.  Coach Harman has an opportunity to be closer to family and SAGU wishes her the best in her continued professional career.”

During her three year tenure at SAGU, Harman was able to improve the team in multiple ways on and off the field.  Harman inherited a team that finished 6-37 during the 2015 season and in three seasons coached the Lions to a 2018 season record of 28-27-1. Harman’s attention to academics produced NCCAA and NAIA Academic All-Americans and the 2017-2018 softball team finished with a 3.57 cumulative GPA.  In addition, her teams were involved in the local Miracle League of Waxahachie among numerous other community service and missions opportunities.  SAGU softball player, Rachel Ray, won the NCCAA Game Plan 4 Life Character Award in the spring of 2018.

“I have been blessed to have spent the past three seasons at SAGU,” said Harman. “It was an honor to be able to participate in the growth and development of outstanding student-athletes.  I would like to the thank Director of Athletics Jesse Godding, Vice-President of Student Services Rev. Terry Phipps, and the SAGU administration for an opportunity to be a part of the SAGU community.”

SAGU will begin a replacement search immediately to fill the vacant softball position.
