ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Centenary gymnastics held the lead at the midway point, and the Ladies won four individual events, but they could not hold on to the lead in a 190.675-188.975 loss to Alaska Friday night, March 3.

The Ladies used a season-high on bars (47.625) and a 47.475-46.850 edge on vault to take a 95.100-94.050 edge after two rotations. Centenary took the top two spots on the bars as junior Ashley White took the event with a 9.800. Senior Allison Scates swung to second with a 9.700. Freshman Evelyn Harris placed fifth with a 9.575, 0.025 off of her career best on the event.

In only her second collegiate meet on vault, freshman Delia Ardoin tied for first with a career best 9.625. Sophomore Aspen Hattley placed third with a season-best 9.575 on the apparatus, 0.025 below her career high.

Despite more than a point lead for the Maroon and White at the halfway mark, Alaska took the lead for good on the third rotation. The Seawolves recorded a 48.475 on beam, while the Ladies countered with a 46.750 on floor. However, freshman Cami Bea Austin received a career best 9.800 on floor to tie with Alaska’s Kendra Daniels and Kallie Randolph for the win.

Randolph and Daniels finished in the top two spots on beam (9.850 and 9.825, respectively), with sophomore Navia Jordan receiving a 9.775 on the event.

Brice Mizell for the Seawolves tied Ardoin for the top spot on vault.

White claimed another all-around title for Centenary with a four-event total of 38.450.

Centenary and Alaska will finish the weekend Sunday with another meet in “The Last Frontier” on Sunday afternoon at 5 p.m. (2 p.m. AKST).
