SHREVEPORT, La. -- The White squad earned a 260-256 victory over Maroon in the annual Centenary Swimming Maroon/White Scrimmage at the Centenary Fitness Center.

In the first organized team event of the 2006-07 season, a 128-124 victory by the women of the white team was the deciding factor in helping the white squad earn the victory in the scrimmage.

With both the men’s and women’s teams continuing to build towards the upcoming season, several Centenary swimmers broke into the Top 5 times in school history in the scrimmage, including one school record.

In the men’s competition, the maroon and white squads finished tied at 122-122.

Competing in the 100-yard breaststroke, freshman Jamie Stults (Allen, Texas/Allen) set a new school record with a time of 1:01.22. Just in his freshman season, Stults broke the former school record of 1:01.35, set by Devin Rourke three seasons ago.
