Winning streak has been pumped up to 12 for the Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) volleyball team as they defeated Texas Wesleyan University in three sets Tuesday night. They continued this by a great performance from all the hitters; everyone had a positive hitting percentage with few hitting errors. Upperclassmen are continuing their leadership and the underclassmen continue to get better match by match. The Lady Lions are getting help from multiple situations with five players having 5 or more points for the match; Kali Shaw, Madeleine Hartline, Alexis Mealer, Suzanny Figueiredo, and Jancee Akers . They also had five players with more than 5 digs each in Celi Bruce, Sophia Ivy, Nikki Almaguer , Shaw, and Figueiredo. Ivy was once again constant with having 37 assists on the night; Shaw led with 14 kills, and Bruce had 21 digs on the big conference win. The Lady Lions played like they have all season in set 1 with only 3 errors and a 0.333 hitting percentage to give them a 25-15 victory. In set 2 the Lions were able to get up 2 sets to 0 and only needing one more to end the night. The Rams did not hit well which led to their downfall; 12 kills with 9 errors on 42 attempts. The final set ended by a score of 25-20 and the meat of round 1 for SAC play has been nothing but a great stepping stone to their success.

The Lady Lions next game will be Saturday at home against John Brown University who currently sit in 3rd place in SAC play with a 5-1 conference record. They will not play against Bacone College Friday night due to the cancellation of their season.
