SHREVEPORT, La. – For the first time since the 2011 season the Centenary volleyball team has claimed its third consecutive match as the Ladies (5-20) downed Dallas Christian College 3-1 on Wednesday evening in the Gold Dome. The victory sends the Maroon and White’s two seniors off the home floor on a three-game streak.

The two squads fought to a deadlock through the opening two sets, but in the third set Centenary rallied back for a 25-14 win to take a 2-1 advantage. The Crusaders wouldn’t go lightly in the contest as DCC held its own in the final set, but it wasn’t enough as Centenary claimed the match with a 25-21 win behind winning the final four points.
