Casey Waterman

Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) senior softball pitcher Casey Waterman saw her stellar SAGU career come to a close at the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Softball World Series . However, the accolades for Waterman did not end with the final game of her career. This week Waterman was named to the NCCAA All-American First Team as a pitcher. She also earned All-Tournament Team honors for her performance May 16-18 in the NCCAA Softball World Series at Botetourt, WV.

The softball team qualified for the NCCAA Softball World Series by winning the NCCAA Central Region Tournament May 8-9 in Waxahachie, TX. Waterman was named NCCAA Player of the Week for her efforts in the regional tournament including pitching all three wins for the Lady Lions. All three games were shutouts.

Head Coach Steve Watson cited the consistency and durability of Waterman throughout the year as a reason Waterman is deserving of the award. Her durability is demonstrated by the following statistic. Waterman led the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) in innings pitched by over 40 innings from the second rated pitcher. Her consistency is demonstrated by an earned run average of 1.83 and securing 24 of the Lady Lions 31 season wins.

As a leading Christian university, SAGU educates and prepares individuals who want to serve Christ and others. SAGU helps students discover and develop their God-given callings in a Spirit-empowered, learning community.

We believe in affordable tuition, made possible in part through the financial support of donors who embrace the mission of SAGU and the importance of affordable, accredited programs to train Christians for leadership in ministry, business, education, and service.

Most majors are available in-person in Waxahachie, TX, and online through a wide range of associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees.
