Thursday, October 21, 2010
SHREVEPORT-The Centenary swimming teams are slated to host their first meet of the season on Saturday at 2 pm in Haynes Fitness Center. Centenary will host Austin College and Hendrix on both the men's and women's side, while Arkansas-Little Rock will compete only on the women's side.

Centenary is coming off a competitive dual meet against Henderson State two weekends ago and are looking to showcase its talent in front of a home crowd.

The Gents were selected to finish second in The Summit League Preseason polls, while the Ladies were tabbed to finish third after returning a core group of swimmers.

In their last outing, the Gents were led by sophomore Matthew Pittman with two first-place finishes in the 1000 and 500 yard freestyle events. Freshman Rachel Olson continues to show well in her debut season with a top finish in the 200 yard IM and a second-place finish in the 100 yard freestyle against Henderson State.

Following this meet, Centenary will compete in the Hendrix Invite on Friday, Oct. 29 beginning at 7 pm, followed by relay action on Saturday, Oct. 30 at 1 pm.
