Chase Lambert had three event
wins in Tuesday's meet at St. Louis

ST. LOUIS -- The Centenary men’s swim team performed brilliantly in Tuesday’s quad meet at St. Louis University. The Gents defeated Mid-Con foes IUPUI and Valparaiso, along with host St. Louis in Tuesday’s meet.

Centenary earned a 146-69 win over IUPUI, while defeating Valparaiso 157-50. The Gents also defeated St. Louis 107.50-100.50, completing a sweep of the three opponents in Tuesday’s meet.

Showing overall team balance and depth in all events throughout this season, Centenary captured seven event wins in Tuesday’s meet, led by the strong performance of sophomore Chase Lambert (Benton,Ark.).

Lambert, emerging as one of the premier swimmers in the Mid-Continent Conference, took wins in the 200 free (1:44.51) and 500 free (4:49.39), helping the Gents capture first place in the 400 free relay (3:10.15).

The Gents depth was fully illustrated in the 500 free, as Centenary swept the first three spots headlined by Lambert’s win. Behind Lambert, freshman Quinn Larwood (Colleyville, Texas) and junior Ross Gilbert (Flower Mound, Texas) finished second and third, respectively, completing the Gent sweep.

In addition to finishing second in the 500 free, Larwood took first place in the 200 fly with a time of 1:58.45.

The day started with Centenary taking the 400 medley relay, with the team of Bryan Myers (Round Rock, Texas), Ryan Duplantis (Chauvin, La.), Wladimir Montoya (Cedar Park, Texas) and Sam Hayes (Alexandria, La.) finishing with a time of 3:34.66.

In the following event on the men’s side, freshman Cole McGee (Albuquerque, N.M.) took first in the 1,000 free, finishing with a time of 10:02.85.

Also finishing first for the Gents, freshman Jamie Stults (Allen, Texas) recorded a time of 1:58.59 to take first in the 200 individual medley.

Centenary returns to action Wednesday at St. Louis, looking to build off of Tuesday’s strong performance.
