Plainview , Texas- October 3, 2015- Even though th Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) volleyball team fell short to Wayland Baptist University (WBU),  they did not go down without a fight.   Wayland Baptist beat SAGU in three straight sets (15-25, 17-25, 24-26). The Lady Lions are now 12-5 overall and 4-2 in the Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC).  WBU is currently second in the SAC (16-5 overall and 6-1 in SAC).

“Even in set one when the score looked lopsided, our kids fought and did some very good things,” explains head coach Hank Moore .
