SAGU Junior Outside Hitter Aeriel Horton

Waxahachie, TX – The final match of the day for Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) looked much like the first match of the day as the Lady Lions overwhelmed a scrappy University of the Southwest Mustangs (USW) squad by scores of 25-16, 25-9, 25-13.  

Lady Lion Review

  • SAGU controlled set one after spotting USW the first four points of the set. From that point SAGU outscored the Mustangs 25-12. SAGU hit .367 (16-5-30) in set one which proved to be there worst hitting percentage in the match.
  • With the score 4-2 in the second set Ariel Horton (JR/Waxahachie, TX) served five points to move the Lady Lions to a comfortable 9-2 lead. Horton would come up in the serving rotation again with the score 18-9 SAGU. She promptly served SAGU’s next seven points to finish off the set at 25-12.
  • In set three Horton picked up where she left off in set two serving the first five points for the Lions who grabbed an early 5-0 lead. After two USW points Ava Myers (FR/Round Top, TX) served eight points to push the SAGU lead to 13-2. Fittingly, with the score 24-13, Horton rotated into the serve position and served the final point for a Lady Lions 25-13 set three win.  
  • SAGU committed two errors in the final two sets hitting over .400 during set two and set three.
  • Alexis Mealer (SO/Arlington, TX) led SAGU with 10 kills and a .500 (10-1-18) hitting percentage. Ava Myers also hit over .500 for the match (9-1-15) and Madeleine Hartline (SR/Round Rock, TX) joined the .500 club with a .545 (7-1-11) hitting percentage.
  • Hartline had seven block assists as the Lions combine for 9.5 blocks against the Mustangs.
