DENTON, Texas – The Centenary men’s swimming team struggled in a pair of meets over the weekend, while the women’s squad split their competition while setting three team records.  The Maroon and White took on McMurray, Texas Christian, and Texas-Permian Basin in Fort Worth, Texas, on Friday, while the Ladies competed against North Texas on Saturday as the Gents battled Southern Methodist.


In Friday’s quadrangular meet, the Ladies downed McMurray 78-15 and UTPB 47-39, while falling to TCU 51-40.  The Gents didn’t fare as well, losing to McMurray 62-30, TCU 67-22, and UTPB 50-44.


In Fort Worth, freshman Taryne Cantillo set a pair of Centenary records in the 200-yard individual medley (2:13.56) and the 200-yard freestyle relay (1:43.58).  Fellow Ladies swimmers Alana Gregory, Melanie Zimmerman, and Murphy Crain helped Cantillo break the relay mark.


On the men’s side, Chase Lambert won the 500-yard freestyle in 4:50.62 while Adam D’Aquin finished second in the 100-yard backstroke in 56.85, just .19 seconds behind the winner.


Saturday’s action saw SMU down the Gents 105-66 as the Ladies fell to UNT 122-70.  The dual meet saw another three records fall, as Cantillo set the mark in the 200-yard freestyle (1:58.60), Lambert took down the 200-yard butterfly (1:57.25) mark, and Lori Von Pingel broke the two-year-old 200-yard breaststroke (2:32.28) record.


Other highlights of Saturday’s competition included Leslie Clampitt finishing second in the 50-yard free in 25.43, just .02 seconds behind her school-record mark she set earlier this season, Ryan Duplantis taking first in the 200-yard breaststroke (2:24.26), and Clampitt, Zimmerman, Gregory, and Von Pingel winning the 200-yard freestyle relay (1:43.79).


Three events saw Centenary taking the top two spots.  Cantillo and Beth Geis topped the 200-yard butterfly in 2:11.49 and 2:18.37 respectively, while Crain and Ally Gann won the 200-yard backstroke in 2:28.27 and 2:30.25 respectively.  On the men’s side, Ross Gilbert and Robert Hendricks finished first and second respectively in the 500-yard freestyle in 5:02.35 and 5:13.18.
