The Lady Lions did nothing but dominate the first 2 games of 4 for this Labor Day Weekend frenzy at Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU). They finished the day going 2-0 without losing a single set in these matches. It was a memorable night, not only for these wins, but for the 2017-2018 team receiving their conference championship rings. That team is no stranger to winning after going 15-1 in conference and finishing the season with 30 wins.

Game 1 was against the new Sooner Athletic Conference member, Langston University. The Lions coasted through this game overall with 75 points to 31; scoring 25-8, 25-18, and 25-5 respectively. This would be Langston’s first loss of the season on Friday night. Kali Shaw had a near perfect game hitting wise, 18 kills on only 2 errors. Freshman, Alexis Mealer led the team with 4 blocks and Sophia Ivy stayed steady with 34 assists.

Our Lady of the Lake University Lions were up to the test after the game against Langston. Sets 1 and 2 were close but the Lady Lions came through on top; 25-22 and 25-20. 5-0 on sets for the night and rolling, the Saints knew they had to have a perfect finish to come away with a win. SAGU finished what they started, with a final win of 25-15 and upping their winning streak to 4. New Lion, Suzanny Figueiredo, had a team high of 20 kills on 31 attempts. Alexis Mealer, once again played well knocking down 6 of her 10 attempts. Kali Shaw and Celi Bruce combined for 31 digs on the night helping the Lions get in position to score.

SAGU is back in action tomorrow with another double-header home battle. Game 1, at 11 am will not be one to miss when they take on the #6 team in the nation who is undefeated on the year, Georgetown College. They will finish the weekend with a matchup against Central Christian College at 1 pm and look to keep the winning streak alive.
