UPDATE: Gymnastics Meet Becomes Senior Spectacular Intrasquad in Gold Dome
Thursday, February 3, 2011

SHREVEPORT-The Centenary gymnastics final home meet originally set to host SEMO has been changed to a Senior Spectacular Intrasquad to honor the five senior gymnasts, beginning at 7 pm. The official meet was canceled due to weather conditions and judges' arrival.

The intrasquad will take place in the Gold Dome and will showcase routines performed by only Centenary gymnasts. The Ladies will have four mock judges, including Centenary President Dr. David Rowe.

The meet will also award organizations for their attendance. Seniors will be honored at the end of the spectacular.
The official home meet will not be rescheduled for a later date.

Centenary will take the time to honor its five seniors on Friday. The 2011 class features Makensie Lant, Laura Loy, Tara Sandoval, Marisa Schneider, and Maille Vetros.

Makensie Lant
Suwanee, Ga.

"Makensie is a great leader, motivator, and overall teammate. She is definitely looked up to on this team and respected. She has grown tremendously as a person since I first met her and will be very successful after her time here at Centenary in whatever she chooses to do," said Goerlitz.

Tara Sandoval
Waller, Texas

"Tara has a great love for gymnastics. She is a very hard worker, and continues to hunger for improvements in her routines. She is usually one of the first people done with her assignments in the gym," said Goerlitz.

Maille Vetros
Clinton, Mass.

"Maille definitely knows how to lighten the mood of the team and make everyone laugh! She is not only a jokester though, she is very serious about gymnastics and her dedication to Centenary College and keeps the team on track with her bluntness and passion," said Goerlitz.

Marisa Schneider
Alpharetta, Ga.

"Marisa is an extremely talented athlete. She has her own unique style and personality that shows when she performs on all four events as she is an all-arounder for the team. Marisa has numerous accolades from the USAG National Championships from the previous three years and it will be exciting to watch her prepare for this year's Nationals," said Goerlitz.

Laura Loy
Flower Mound, Texas

"Laura has taken on a new role this year as a student coach. Last year she tore her ACL and decided not to return to gymnastics as an athlete. She has been doing a great job at asking what she needs to do to help out in the gym and conditioning and she has been overseeing study hall sessions," said Goerlitz.

Following Friday's meet, the Ladies will travel back to Denton, Texas to face TWU and Illinois State on Saturday, Feb. 26 at 7 pm.
