Oklahoma City, OK – The Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) Volleyball team played a very hard-fought match tonight against Mid-America Christian Unviersity (MACU).  In the first set the Lions struggled in every aspect of play; it took them a while to get settled. A few mental errors on serve and receive to go along with nine hitting errors sums up the lost to MACU in the first set.  The Lady Lions got settled in and played much better as a team after the first set. The girls stepped up and played very hard to win the next three straight sets to win the match in 4. The fall semester has been one to remember for the Volleyball program. They looked to carry this momentum into the spring.
