Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) volleyball team Oklahoma Wesleyan University Wiley College

In the first game, OKWU won the first two sets.  SAGU was able to fight back, and win the third and fourth sets, forcing the game to a fifth set. In the end, OKWU came out on top.

Offensively, freshman Kali Shaw led SAGU with 16 kills, Mollie McBride had 15 kills and Faith Pittman added 13 kills. Senior setter Caitlin Paschall had 50 assists and 20 digs. Two other Lady Lions came out in the double digits with digs; Emmalee Smith had 24 and Kali Shaw had 21 digs.

Despite the loss, head coach Hank Moore feels good about the way the team played, “OKWU played an amazing match. Even though we didn’t get the win, I feel that we played well and grew today.”

Moore was able to test the growth theory against the Wiley Wildcats. In the three set take down, SAGU won 25-18, 25-20, and 25-23. This match was a game where two freshmen, Kali Shaw and Faith Pittman , were able to show out.

“I felt like this weekend we saw our young players really grow up right before our eyes.  A 3-0 win over Wiley is a good accomplishment. We are making strides and I’m very proud of our team.” says Head Coach Hank Moore.

Faith Pittman played an outstanding game. When the Lady Lions were down she took the team by the reins, coming in with five kills and two blocks at a critical time to put the team back on top.

SAGU is now 4-3 for the season.  On Friday, September 11, 2015 SAGU will host Arlington Baptist College at 7:00pm.
