Monday, December 8, 2003

Indianapolis, Ind.—The Centenary swim team competed at the Mid-Continent Conference Championships over the weekend. Although there are not yet enough swimmers in the newly organized sport for Centenary to compete as a team at the event, several individuals performed well.

Robert Trempski recorded Centenary’s highest finish in the meet with a second- place effort in the 100 Yard Backstroke. He also qualified for the finals of the 100 Yard Freestyle in which he placed 14th.

Matija Fojs earned a third-place finish in his only event, the 200 Yard Freestyle, while Jacob Stevens placed fourth in the 200 Yard IM. Stevens participated in three events and landed in seventh and 11th place in the 500 Yard Freestyle and the 200 Yard Freestyle respectively.

Although none of the Ladies finished in the top five of their events, several qualified for the finals. Elizabeth Staton placed eighth in the 200 Yard Breast Stroke, 12th in the 100 Yard Freestyle, and 13th in the 200 Yard IM. Kristin Moulden performed well with two seventh-place finishes in the 100 Yard Back Stroke and the 200 Yard Back Stroke. Kayli LeBlanc garnered a tenth-place spot in the 100 Yard Butterfly, Lauren Rose finished 14th in the 200 Yard IM, and Rita Stevenson placed 16th in the 50 Yard Freestyle to round out the Ladies that advanced to the finals.

The Centenary swim team will now enjoy a couple of weeks off before returning to the pool for their spring season.
