Tuesday, December 6, 2016

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – Three Centenary student-athletes, one each representing volleyball and Ladies and Gents soccer, were named to the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference All-Sportsmanship Team.

Defensive specialist and sophomore Amanda Farr represents volleyball, while senior midfielder Jeremy Klespis received recognition for Gents soccer. Ladies soccer sophomore midfielder Liz Knight rounds out the Centenary honorees.

Appearing in the back row in 19 matches, including as a libero, Farr recorded 0.67 digs per set and 0.18 assists per set. She had a season high six digs in Centenary’s four-set win against Sul Ross State on September 2.

“Amanda is such a great teammate,” said sophomore teammate Ashley Brown. “She always finds a way to lift everyone up, even if she isn’t having the best day. Amanda goes out of her way to make sure you’re not having a bad day also. She’s that little light on the team that every team needs to survive its toughest moments.”

Wrapping up his final season with Gents soccer in 2016, Klespis played in 19 games in 2016. For his career, he scored six goals, added five assists, and tallied 17 points. He scored the game winner in the 85th minute against Concordia-Morehead, a 2-1 victory his sophomore season.

“In my time coaching Jeremy, I have seen him develop not only as a player, but as a person,” said Gents soccer head coach Kyle Symczak. “He was a leader in our locker room, and I am glad to see him get recognized for how well he conducts himself on and off the field.”

Knight played in every game for Ladies soccer with 17 starts in her sophomore campaign. She tallied the first assist of her collegiate career on the second goal of the Maroon and White’s 5-0 win against Pelican State-rival Louisiana College on September 3.

“Liz emerged as a captain for her ability to be competitive and a positive outlook towards teammates, staff, fans, opponents, and officials. She is a social leader in our team and a great person,” said head Ladies soccer coach David Orr.
