Leslie Wyatt broke the
Ladies' record in the 400 IM

ST. LOUIS -- Four school records were set as the Centenary women’s swim team defeated two of three teams at St. Louis University Wednesday.

Centenary defeated IUPUI and Valparaiso, both from the Mid-Con, by the scores of 131-73 and 132-76, respectively. The Ladies fell to host St. Louis, 139-79, in Wednesday’s meet. Somewhat a measuring stick for how the Ladies are progressing thus far this season, Centenary defeated conference foes IUPUI and Valparaiso in both Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s meet.

In Wednesday’s meet, freshmen Maggie Vaughan (Clinton, Miss.) and Leslie Wyatt (Greenwood Village, Colo.) were part of four new school records, signaling a bright future for the Ladies’ program.

Vaughan, among the premier swimmers in the Mid-Continent Conference, set a new Centenary record for the 200 free with a time of 1:56.76, also breaking her own school record in the 500 free with a time of 5:06.51. Just in her freshman season, Vaughan owns school record in three events.

Wyatt broke the school record in the 400 individual medley, breaking her school record in the event with a time of 4:43.00.

Wyatt was also part of the first-place finishing 200 free relay team, which set a new Centenary mark with a time of 1:40.74. Wyatt, who swam the opening leg of the event, was joined by sophomore Taryne Cantillo (Georgetown, Texas), freshman Natalie Nazzal (Kingwood, Texas) and sophomore Leslie Clampitt (Dallas).

Coupled with her win in the 200 free relay, Clampitt also took first in the 100 free with a time of 54.75, finishing second in the 50 free with a time of 24.85.

In the 100 fly, Cantillo finished second, recording a time of 1:00.08, while Rebecca Loy (Flower Mound, Texas) finished second in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:09.64.

To open the meet, the team of junior Melanie Zimmerman (Round Rock, Texas), freshman Kendra Norman (Power Springs, Ga.), Wyatt and Nazzal took second in the 200 medley relay. The team finished with a time of 1:55.29 in the event.

Centenary next competes against Delta State Jan. 13, hosting Delta State at the Centenary Fitness Center.
