CONWAY, Ark – The Centenary men’s and women’s swimming teams broke a combined nine school records as both squads dominated the weekend’s events at the 38th Annual Hendrix Classic and the 43rd Annual Hendrix Relays.  The Ladies and Gents won 11 of the 22 swimming events at the Classic on Friday and followed that with winning 16 of the 22 swimming events at the Relays on Saturday.


Freshman Taryne Cantillo set three Centenary records as she finished in first place in two individual and five relay events.  She set records in the 200 free with a time of 2:00.21, 200 fly at 2:10.88, and was on the 300 fly relay team that set the mark at 3:13.44.


Fellow freshman Leslie Clampitt added her name to the record books, setting top times in the 50 free (25.41), and the 500 free relay (4:55.90).  Clampitt also took home wins in both events’ 400 free relays (3:48.42 and 3:48.97) and 400 medley relays (4:12.46 and 4:14.94).


Also breaking the record in the 500 free relay was Caitlin Cunningham, Amanda Graves, and Beth Geis, while Cantillo was joined by Ally Gann and Sara Hansen in the record setting 300 fly relay.  Graves, Gann, and Melanie Zimmerman also toppled the school mark in the 300 back relay at 3:15.63.


On the Gents side, sophomore Robert Hendricks set three different relay records over the weekend.  Along with Randy Myers, Ross Gilbert, and Dustin Myers, Hendricks placed third in the 500 free relay in a Gents best ever time of 4:24.46.  He and Gilbert teamed up again, along with Matija Fojs, to break the record in the 1500 free relay at 15:17.79.  With a time of 2:52.59, Hendricks, Bryan Myers, and Adam D’Aquin took home the victory and record in the 300 back relay in 2:52.59.


Freshman Chase Lambert had a solid weekend, winning six of his seven events with a lone runner-up placement.  He took home top honors in the 200 free, 200 fly, 400 free relay, 800 free relay, 300 fly relay, and 400 medley relay.  His only second place finish also came in the 400 medley relay.
