Ladyjacks suffer setback to Texas Christian University at home, 4-0
SFA's soccer team fell behind to Texas Christian University early in Sunday's game and never recovered, ceding the match by a 4-0 margin.
The loss drops the team to 4-4 on the season and hands the Ladyjacks their worst loss of the season, just two days after opening conference play with an impressive 2-0 victory over Northwestern State University Friday.
Volleyball falls in Rice Adidas Invitational II
The problems presented by a slow start by SFA’s volleyball team were compounded by a potent attack by Arkansas State University as the Ladyjacks dropped a 3-0 decision to the Red Wolves at Tudor Fieldhouse in the penultimate match of the Rice Adidas Invitational II Saturday afternoon.
That night, the Ladyjacks watched their late lead slip away as Rice scored six of the final eight points of the match to secure a 3-2 triumph in the final game of the invitational.
McDonald-Lysinger Piano Duo to perform at SFA

Funny, sexy, satirically relevant ‘Tartuffe’ comes to SFA
Every theatre season needs a few good laughs. The 2017-18 Mainstage Series achieves that with the fall presentation of Molière’s “Tartuffe.”
The School of Theatre will present “Tartuffe” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, Oct. 3 through 7, in Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus. Set in the 17th century, the play depicts a con man (the title character) who has successfully duped a wealthy businessman named Orgon. Because he is so impressed with Tartuffe’s pretensions of moral purity and religious piety, Orgon has invited Tartuffe to move into his lavish Paris home and take full advantage of his hospitality.
Single tickets are $15 for adult, $10 for senior and $7.50 for student/youth. For tickets or more information, call the SFA Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407 or visit theatre.sfasu.edu.
This version of the café wall illusion, produced by Victoria Skye, will have you seeing things.
Geometrical graphics often trick the brain due to the way it receives and processes information. In this optical illusion, parallel straight dividing lines between staggered rows with alternating black and white “bricks” appear to be sloped, but they are actually completely straight.
