The four games that SAGU Volleyball Lion would play this weekend would give head coach Hank Moore and his ladies a good idea of where they may be going this season. Saturday revealed more of their resilient character.
On Friday night, the volleyball Ladies lost their first match to UT-Brownsville, starting them off 0-1 in conference. Then in their next game, SAGU bounced back to win three straight games over Southern Nazarene University. Saturday would look vaguely familiar.
Game One vs. Houston Baptist
In their opening match on Saturday, the Lady Lions lost in three straight games to former Red River Conference member, Houston Baptist University.
HBU is now a NCAA-Division I member.
The Lady Huskies downed the Lady Lions in three games by the scores of 23-30, 27-30, and 18-30.
However, Kelani Keoho continued a stellar week with 15 kills, 10 digs and two aces. Rachel Brown stacked up 20 assists and 11 digs.
Four other ladies finished with double-digit digs as Mallory Scott led with 16; Jordan Briggs had 15, while Kelly Ray and Christine Bottles raked up 13 digs.
Game Two vs. St. Thomas University
Just like on Friday, game two was the winning match for the Lady Lions as SAGU rolled through three games defeating St. Thomas University 30-26, 30-28, 30-28.
Keoho again was the leader of the kill category with 15. The NCCAA player of the week for last week, finished this week with 104 kills. Mallory Scott also hit double-digits in kills with 12.
With 26 assists, Rachel Brown moved her week total to 188. Brown also led the ladies in digs with 17.
The week ends for SAGU volleyball after winning four games and losing two; improving their season record to 8-3.
Tuesday at 3 p.m., the Lady Lions will host Huston-Tillotson University in the Full Life Center.
