SHREVEPORT-The 2011-12 Centenary swimming season will kick off this Saturday when the Ladies and Gents combine to host their annual Maroon & White Intrasquad Scrimmage at 2 pm in Haynes Fitness Center.

Centenary welcomes alumni and fans of Ladies and Gents swimming to take part in the annual event as each swimmer will contribute in some way throughout the meet.

"It will be a fun meet for our kids. The format is designed for fun," said head coach Butch Jordan.

The intrasquad is designed to showcase and evaluate the current swimmers and their progress throughout the preseason as the official 2011-12 season kicks off shortly.

"For the coaches the meet will give us some insight on how our preparation is going. We are doing general conditioning so the emphasis on setting a base for the season," said Jordan.

"The short events will be as much for getting the kids into a racing mindset more than to test our conditioning," said Jordan.

Saturday will officially jumpstart the 2011-12 season as Centenary is schedule to participate in 11 total events, including the NSISC Championships at the end of the season.

"We are expecting fans to be entertained with competitive competition amongst each other. Saturday should be a great day for Centenary swimming," said Jordan.
