SHREVEPORT, La. – The Centenary baseball team moves on to the winner’s bracket on Saturday following 10-0 win over Southwestern University to open the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships.

Centenary added a run in the fifth and four in the sixth to capture the win. After Aaron Quintanilla drove in a run with a sacrifice fly to right, Sebastien, Lavergne, Dakota Brown and Ian Graham all drove in runs to ice the contest.
