SHREVEPORT, La. -- Traveling to Conway, Ark., the Centenary men’s and women’s compete in the 39th Annual Hendrix Classic Friday and 44th Annual Hendrix Relays Saturday, both held at Grove Pool, on the campus of Hendrix College.

Defeating three of four teams its competed against this season, the Ladies won its dual meet against the University of New Orleans last weekend, setting program records in five events.

Freshman Maggie Vaughan (Clinton, Miss./Clinton) won both the 500 free and 1,000 free against New Orleans, remaining undefeated in the two events this season. Vaughan holds the Ladies’ record in the 500 free with a time of 5:10.38, setting the record in the 1,000 free with a time of 10:30.86.

Also excelling in the Ladies first three meets, freshman Rebecca Loy (Flower Mound, Texas/Flower Mound) won both the 100 breaststroke and 200 breaststroke in Centenary’s last meet, setting the program record in both events. Against New Orleans, Loy touched the wall with a time of 1:08.77 in the 100 breaststroke, setting the record in the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:27.68.

Junior Taryne Cantillo (Georgetown, Texas/Georgetown) also set the record for the Ladies record in the 100 fly with a time of 59.56 in Centenary’s last meet. The Ladies hope that Cantillo can continue her outstanding achievements of last weekend, in which the sophomore won three events and set one program record.

The Gents showed a strong effort in last weekend’s dual meet against SMU.
