Men’s track and field broke several records at Texas Tech event

The OLLU men’s indoor track and field crew participated in the Texas Tech University Matador Open on Friday.

Head Coach Stephen Sherman said, “It is rare in track and field, at least in my experience, to compete in a meet where every athlete in the group is dialed in and are all successful on some level. Most if not all of our athletes hit season bests, career bests and or school records. Coach Terry Smith and I left the meet with a certain level of contentment that was different. To be quite honest it was a little odd not being disconcerted about anything, but it was refreshing too. I am very proud of this group.” Read full story.

Baseball wins two of four and marks a no-hitter

The baseball team won two of four games against the NAIA’s No. 21 team Central Methodist University (CMU). In the first game on Friday, the Saints lost 7-0 and won the second game 2-1. In Saturday’s games, the Saints lost 11-4 and won 8-7. In the win yesterday, the Saints recorded a no-hitter shared by pitchers Logan Garza and Joey Baker. The team dedicated the series to Professor Steve Wise, who passed away last week. He was a great advocate for athletics and for student-athletes at OLLU. OLLU will play next on Feb. 8 and Feb. 9 against Sterling College. Both doubleheaders will begin at noon at the Missions Baseball Academy.
