CONWAY, Ark. -- Sweeping both weekend events held at Grove Pool, the both the Centenary men’s and women’s swim teams captured victories in the 44th Annual Hendrix Relays, held at Hendrix College in Conway, Ark. Both the Gents and Ladies squads picked up 346 points in the win.

After winning Friday’s Hendrix Classic, the Gents dominated the competition Saturday, winning 10 of 11 relay events.

Three Gent swimmers were part of four relay event victories in Saturday’s Hendrix Relays, with five other Centenary swimmers winning multiple relays.

Sophomores Bryan Myers (Round Rock, Texas/Round Rock) and Ryan Duplantis (Chauvin, La./South Terrebonne), along with freshman Wladamir Montoya (Cedar Park, Texas/Cedar Park) were all part of four winning relay teams, helping the Gents to the victory.

Opening the meet for the Gents, Bryan Myers, Montoya, Jamie Stults (Allen, Texas/Allen) and Sam Hayes (Alexandria, La./Alexandria Senior) captured the 400 medley relay with a time of 3:40.05, over five second in front of the relay team from the University of Texas Permian Basin.

The Gents went on to win the next seven events, capped off by a win in the 300 fly relay by the team of freshman David Berude (Kingwood, Texas/Kingwood), sophomore Chase Lambert (Benton, Ark./Bryant) and Montoya. The trio recorded a time of 2:44.47 in the 300 fly relay.

After a win in the 200 medley relay, Centenary ended a very successful weekend with a victory in the meet’s final event, the 400 free relay. Freshmen Alex Opland (Marietta, Ga./Mt. Paran Christian) and Clay Malinovsky (Frisco, Texas/Hebron), joined by junior Adam D’Aquin (Baton Rouge, La./Catholic) and Lambert won the event with a time of 3:22.61.

On the women’s side, Centenary won 10 events for the second consecutive day en route to the lopsided victory.

Freshmen Jessica Brown (Flower Mound, Texas/Flower Mound) and Leslie Wyatt (Greenwood Village, Colo./Cherry Creek), with sophomore Taryne Cantillo (Georgetown, Texas/Georgetown) all were part of event-winning relay teams in Saturday’s meet, all with four event wins.

Also excelling for the Ladies, Leslie Clampitt (Dallas/Highland Park), Natalie Nazzal (Kingwood, Texas/Kingwood) and Murphy Crain (Dallas/Richardson) were part of three event-winning relay teams.

Winning by over 14 seconds, the team of Cantillo, Wyatt, Clampitt and freshman Rebecca Loy (Flower Mound, Texas/Flower Mound) captured the 400 medley relay with a time of 4:11.43 to start the meet on the right foot for the Ladies.

Following the win in the 400 medley relay, the Ladies took the 200 freestyle relay (1:42.34) and 300 backstroke relay (3:19.49), closing the meet with wins in the final seven events.

Notably for the Ladies, 12 swimmers had more than one win in Saturday’s relay event.
