PLAINVIEW, TEXAS (April 3, 2021) – The Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) volleyball team fell to No. 19-ranked Oklahoma City University (OCU) 3-0 in a neutral match and Wayland Baptist University (WBU) 3-1 in an away match on Saturday. The Saints finish the regular season 11-3 after winning the Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) title on March 27.
