SHREVEPORT, La. – Sophomore Navia Jordan completed the weekend sweep on floor, while senior Allison Scates accomplished the same feat on bars, but Centenary (2-3) fell to Air Force (2-4) 192.000-190.650 Sunday afternoon, January 29.

For the second-straight meet, Jordan performed on floor for the final routine of the competition. Like against Wisconsin-Oshkosh Friday night, she won her only event of the day, finishing with a 9.800 to surpass junior Ashley White’s 9.775 just moments before. White, who won on vault on Friday night, finished second on the apparatus with a 9.700.

White also finished second in the all-around with a total of 38.375.

While Centenary nipped Air Force on floor (48.550-48.525) and the Falcons returned the favor on vault (47.375-47.350), the visitors used a more that six-tenths advantage on bars (48.050-47.325) and beam (48.050-58.425) for the win. The Falcons claimed a trio of winners on beam in Riley Hill, Analise Howard, and Kara Witgen each with 9.775.

Scates and Howard tied on bars with 9.800 score each. White took third on bars with a judges’ average of 9.725.

Freshman Delia Ardoin on beam (9.650) and sophomore Makenzie Packer on bars (9.375) each matched personal bests. Senior Taylor Le Moal on floor turned in a career best with a 9.475.

Centenary returns to action Friday night, February 3, when the Ladies travel to Ames, Iowa, for a tri-meet with Iowa State and Nebraska. First rotation is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
