Freshman Sierra Ponder Provides Us this Week's Gym Talk!
Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Hey Centenary Ladies fans! This is your final freshman, Sierra Ponder, coming at you with this week’s gym talk! The Ladies were studying hard this past week as our finals week approaches, and we’ve been in the gym killing it as we’ve been completing our upgraded assignments each day. As the studying has been a little brain-boggling, Centenary has had on campus activities like a petting zoo where the Ladies interacted with the beautiful animals during study breaks. We have been diligent with our studies as the days have gone by and are ready to take on those exams! I’m so happy my team sets such high standards to fight and bring in such a high GPA this season.

This weekend, we’ve begun our exciting Gold Dome practices! These practices have been prepping the Ladies for their competition season when we compete there in February. The long hours of practice this weekend have shown us how strong our Ladies really are! Shout out to some of our beam queens; Jenny for her front tuck mounts on beam, and Cami for her huge triple flight series. Those aren’t all of our improvements, as our bar stars Aspen does her comeback overshoot and Dorothy does her blind fulls. The Ladies are really looking beautiful. I’m so psyched to see how this season goes with our amazing captain Liz and our new announced co- captains Ashley and Tavia. I’m so glad to have them lead our team to greatness this year.

The current week is our actual finals week and we will be having open gym practices. This week we’ll have to use our time wisely as it may be limited in the gym. We are working hard to balance school work and have some fun in the gym with these last practices before Christmas Break. The Ladies are ecstatic to return home and spend time with their loved ones.

We are looking forward to our break, but as a team, we also know that we have to be accountable for ourselves. With our at-home practices, Coach Jackie has given us our own accountability partners to help us stay connected. This is what team work is all about! We’re setting our goals and are knocking them out each day!

That’s all for now thanks for tuning in! The Ladies are ready for a season full of smiles and great high-flying gymnastics!



Until next time,
