DENTON, TX --  The Ladies gymnastics team participated in its final road meet before the home opener this Friday, and, while they would not be the victors, there were a lot of positives.  The Ladies posted their second highest score of the season, registering a 189.900.  This score set them in second place behind host school TWU (194.200). 

Centenary garnered season highs and personal bests throughout the event and clearly improved from last weekend’s showing.   “We had some outstanding performances this weekend…and [are] moving in the right direction,” said Head Coach Jacqueline Fain. 

On the Vault, the Ladies recorded their highest score of the season with a 48.200.  Junior Meg Crowley (9.675), Sophomore Robyn Price (9.600), and Freshman Natalie Humbert (9.575) each recorded season highs on the vault.   Kayla Jones, from TWU, won the event with a score of 9.825.

On the Beam, the Ladies were led by Senior Lauren Carlton (9.700) and Junior Jessica Lieblich (9.725). Carlton’s score was a personal best for the four-year performer, while Lieblich’s score was a season high for her and earned her second place honors for this apparatus.  Larimer won her second event here with a score of 9.775.

The Floor Exercise saw the Ladies post a solid score of 47.925; however TWU recorded a school record 49.275 to earn the win.  Centenary was paced by Junior Meg Crowley, who garnered a personal best 9.850.  Carlton also had a stand-out performance with a score of 9.775.
