Moore’s Musings

“We had a very tough loss today to OCU. They (OCU) played one of their worst matches of the season and we chose not to take advantage of their poor play. Our defense was solid, but our offense was non-existent. You cannot hit negative for a match. Some of that was OCU, but we just played poorly. Time to move on and get ready for TWU on Tuesday and another conference weekend of volleyball next week.”

Next Step

Texas Wesleyan University comes to the Sheaffer Center on the campus of SAGU for a Tuesday night matchup on the 29 th of October. Match time is set for 7:00 pm. With a win the Lady Lions could force a 3-way tie for 2 nd in the SAC. On Friday and Saturday SAGU welcomes Wayland Baptist and Oklahoma Panhandle State to the Sheaffer Center Gymnasium for SAC play.
