CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo – The Centenary Ladies’ gymnastics team improved its team score from last week finishing with a 189.150 Friday night, but fell to Southeast Missouri State (193.700). The team finish was about five points better than last week’s 184.200 in the Ozone Collegiate Classic.

Junior Robyn Price led the Ladies, finishing with two individual top three finishes and placed the highest in the All-Around for Centenary. Price finished third-place (38.525). She also would take second on vault (9.700) and third on floor exercise (9.775), which was a career high.

Senior Meg Crowley notched the highest individual medal for the Maroon and White, taking first on floor exercise (9.850), and contributed to the highest event score of the night for the Ladies (48.175).

"Overall I was really pleased with the team's performance tonight. We made a marked improvement from last weeks meet and I believe took a huge step forward. I put some new faces in the line-ups tonight to give them an opportunity for some experience and they all did a phenomenal job."  This is going to make our team deeper as we move into the heart of our season," head coach Jackie Fain said. "Kellie Slater competed in her first collegiate meet tonight and went out and hit all three of her events and Megan Desjardins is showing herself to be a consistent competitor early in the season. We did not have to count a fall on beam tonight, which is just where we want to be in only our second meet of the season. We still need to upgrade a few routines, but tonight was a great meet for the Ladies."

The Ladies continue action next Friday with a meet against Ball State at Muncie, Indiana. Competition is slated to begin at 7 pm.
