Tuesday, June 28, 2011
SHREVEPORT-Centenary swimming head coach Butch Jordan has released the Ladies and Gents 2011-12 schedule, which features two home meets and a competitive schedule, facing teams amongst the Division II New South Intercollegiate Swim Conference.

Centenary is set to open its schedule with a Gents-only meet against Stanford on Sept. 9 in Lafayette, La. at 3 pm. The Ladies and Gents will team up to face TCU on Oct. 7 at 4:30 pm in Fort Worth, Texas.

Oct. 22 will mark Centenary's home opener against Austin College and Hendrix at 2 pm in Haynes Fitness Center. Following the Hendrix Classic and Hendrix Relays, the Ladies and Gents will host Henderson State at 1 pm on Nov. 5.

Centenary will hit the road to take part in the Trinity Shootout, UALR Invite, Austin College Invitational, and a dual meet with Trinity. The NSISC Conference Championship will take place on Feb. 23-25 and hosted by Delta State.

"We will still swim some Division I schools like TCU men and women and our men open with Stanford on September 9 in Lafayette. Stanford men were 3rd at NCAA's a year ago, so our schedule is plenty tough," said Jordan. "We have three invitationals on the schedule which are always fun. Our team needs to be ready to go because this
season will be as tough as any we have had in the past."

Jordan and staff look to guide a very young and thriving squad this upcoming season after graduating a top-notch senior class a year ago. The program had another successful season in The Summit League as the Gents earned second place honors and the Ladies, fourth place honors last year.

"We have 22 freshmen on the roster and one transfer for the fall and that in itself is exciting and challenging," said Jordan. "We are excited to see how this 2011-12 squad measures up in the pool and in leading this team into the new conference. This junior and senior class needs to be ready to lead."

The New South Intercollegiate Swim Conference features Centenary, Ouachita Baptist, Henderson State, Drury, Delta State, Truman, and Missouri Science and Technology.
