Shawnee, Oklahoma – October 17, 2015- After losing the first set to St. Gregory’s University (SGU) 25-20, the Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) volleyball team rallied to come back and take the next three sets (28-26, 25-22, 25-29).  The Lady Lions improved to 14-8 overall and 6-5 in the Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC).  SGU is currently 5-13 overall and 1-9 in the SAC.

According to head coach Hank Moore , the game against SGU was a different look for SAGU, “We played a complete different line up that took some time adjusting, but the kids played hard.  We played well after we got the bugs out of a new rotation.”

Senior Caitlin Paschall had a double/double with 37 assists and 11 digs.  She also had four kills.  Four SAGU players ended in double digits in digs; Celi Bruce led with 16, Katie Ryan had 14, Emmalee Smith had 13 and Paschall followed with 11.

Kali Shaw led the Lady Lions in kills with 17.  She also added nine digs. Carlie Tuiasosopo had 13 kills and hit for 0.346 and Summer Skillern added 11 kills will hitting for 0.304.

The Lady Lions definitely rebounded after the loss to Southwestern Christian the night before.  “Losing stinks, but sometimes it really brings about a great growth in your team,” says Moore.

On Monday, October 20, 2015, SAGU will travel to Arlington Baptist College .  Game time is at 7:00pm.
