SHREVEPORT – Centenary gymnastics head coach Jackie Fain has named Christy Martinez as the Academic Captain of this year’s Ladies gymnastics team.

As the Academic Captain, Martinez will help the Ladies focus on their classroom performance and give them guidance if they may be having problems with any classes, assignments, papers or presentations. 

“Christy has really stepped forward in this leadership position as the semester has gotten underway,” Fain said. “I am very proud of her efforts to help her teammates become better students, and of the example she sets when it comes to her academics.”

She has maintained an exemplary grade point average throughout her three years at Centenary and has been named to the All-Conference Academic team and a USA Gymnastics scholar athlete every year she has been eligible for these prestigious awards.

 “I really appreciate her willingness to help,” Fain said. “Her experiences and hard work at Centenary have prepared her to be the right person for this position on our team.  We have been working hard on our academic efforts this year, and having Christy in this position will be a crucial step in keeping our Ladies focused on their studies.”
