Hey Ladies Fans! This is Sophomore Kendall Sanders with this week's gym talk!
This week has been full of fun and excitement. The Ladies had a great track workout where we focused on our vault sprints and building up the endurance with some stadiums (everyone's favorite!!) After open gym on Friday the Ladies attended the women's soccer game where our very own Kendall Knaps and Rose Deshler sang the National Anthem together and sounded AMAZING! There was also a tailgate where our famous Chief Eddie Walker and other DPS officers grilled for everyone. This was a special night as it was the dedication of the brand new soccer and lacrosse facility, Mayo Field. Centenary's President, Dr. Christopher Holoman and our AD, Marcus Manning got to cut the ribbon with all of the Lady soccer players! It was great to see this happening on Centenary's campus.
The Ladies decided to have a dark and early open gym on Saturday, because there was an event on campus later in the day some of us wanted to attend. We made a team beam game and got the chance to be competitive and push each other. That evening some of the Ladies attended the "Up with People" show, which is a group of international students Centenary was happy to host. We got to meet several international performers and learn about their story as they learned about ours. Two of our freshman, Kendall Huff and Rose Deshler, got to host a student from North Carolina. She attended our open gym on Sunday to learn more about what Kendall and Rose do, and we all got to meet her.
Sunday's open gym was one of the best ones yet. We had vault shakers twisting and bar stars catching those release moves. The energy was up and the cheering never stopped! Shout out to freshman Maddie McCary for catching her Tkatchev with a little inspiration from our amazing coach!. Also, shout out to senior Cami Bea Austin for catching her Tkatchev who was inspired as well! This kind of atmosphere was just what the Ladies needed as we head into our last week of open gyms before official practice begins!
Keep checking in as the Ladies flip and fly to new heights!
Love- Kendall Sanders
