Senior Megan Desjardins brings us this week's Gym Talk
Thursday, October 29, 2015

Hey Ladies fans!

This is senior Megan Desjardins, bringing you the latest news on the Centenary gymnastics team! This was a very busy week for the Centenary Ladies! It was homecoming, alumni, and parents’ weekend at Centenary. It was definitely a fun and exciting week for the ladies. We went to a lot of the homecoming events as a team, like the gumbo cook off, the tailgate and many other homecoming events. We had our athletic award ceremony during the homecoming events and Kellie, Allison, Taylor and Kaity received awards for being named Academic All-Americans, along with Noel (vault) and Ashley (AA, vault, beam) receiving their All-American certificates.  We couldn’t be more proud to have these hardworking Ladies representing us this weekend. It was fun getting to spend time with each other and a great way for us to come together to support Centenary College.

We also had our Hall of Fame induction on Friday, and one of our very own Centenary gymnasts, Kristina Menne Forward (2004) was inducted this year. We would like to send a huge shout out to Kristina for being inducted into the hall of fame on Friday. What an honor for our team to be represented once more in the hall of fame! We also had a one of our current alumni, Robyn Price, come to visit, which it was super fun to see her. We loved having them here, and can’t wait to see them next time!

This week in the gym, we have been staying focused on being determined at practice. We are starting to do full routines and working really hard to make improvements. We had a surprise beam intrasquad on Saturday and with all the parents and alumni in town, we had a huge crowd of supporters there to watch. Shout out to freshmen Elizabeth Sanders, sophomore Ashley White, and senior Stephanie Strickler for making their beam routines this weekend. Way to go Ladies!

 It was nice to have so many faces in the gym including three recruits! I hope to see them again in the future! All of our hard work and determination is going to pay off, and I am looking forward to a great season this year! The Ladies are going to rock it out, so stay tuned for next week’s Gym Talk!

Thanks for all the support Ladies fans!
