Cannon Earp

Centenary men's golfer Cannon Earp was named Summit League Co-Golfer of the Week after firing a two-round 144 (74-70) at the Doyle Wallace Classic hosted by Henderson State and helping the Gents to a fifth place finish as a team.

The Crockett, Texas native collects his first career award after joining Centenary last season from Hill College. The senior shot a two-under 70 in the final round on Tuesday for a career-best to finish in a tie for fifth overall.

Gents Finish Fifth; Earp Earns Top 5 Finish

The Centenary men's golf team trimmed two strokes off its opening round score and senior Cannon Earp fired a two-under 70 in the final round to help the Gents capture fifth place honors with a 616 on Tuesday at the Doyle Wallace Classic hosted by Henderson State.

Centenary's Earp (74-70) had a strong final showing, cutting four shots off his first round score to finish in a tie for fifth overall with a 36-hole total 144. The senior entered Tuesday's round in a tie for 16th, but fired off a subpar round to garner a Top 10 finish.

Senior Ryan Sparks (77-77) tied for 22nd with a two-round total of 154, while classmate Greg Berthelot (78-77) was one shot shy, finishing in a tie for 25th. Rounding out play for the Gents was sophomore Jay Frazier (80-83) tied for 45th with a 163.

Blackout, Go Barefoot, Honor Seniors with Centenary Basketball on Saturday

Blackout poster

As Centenary basketball winds down the 2010-11 season and play its final games in The Summit League, the Ladies and Gents will host Blackout Saturday in the Gold Dome for both contests, beginning at 2 pm and 4:30 pm.

Fans are encouraged to wear the color black to paint the Gold Dome for both the men's and women's games. The first 50 fans at each game will receive a black Centenary basketball t-shirt.

Also, the Centenary men's basketball staff will team up with IUPUI's coaching staff and head coach Ron Hunter, who became the first coach to take part in the event, to go "Barefoot for Bare feet". Samaritan's Feet is an effort to help change the lives of children for the better.

"After being exposed to Samaritan's Feet at IUPUI with Ron and making the decision to be a part of this movement, I felt like it was an excellent opportunity to coach and raise awareness at the same time," said head Centenary coach Adam Walsh.

"It's the simple things that we take for granted like shoes when 300 million children are without. I am proud to be a part of this cause."

PREVIEW: Ladies Set for Final Games; Honor Seniors Saturday

The Centenary women's basketball team is gearing up for its final weekend series of the 2010-11 season. The Ladies will first take on the Jaguars of IUPUI followed by the Leathernecks of Western Illinois for the season finale. Centenary's weekend series begins Saturday at 2 pm and closes with a 7 pm tip-off on Monday evening.

LAST TIME OUT
Senior Anne Farrell captured her second consecutive double-double against Oral Roberts at home on Saturday afternoon, scoring 15 points and pulling down an impressive career-high 21 rebounds, however the Golden Eagles' fast-paced offense soared away, defeating the Ladies 101-66. The Ladies dropped to 0-23 on the season and 0-16 in conference play.

PREVIEW: Gents End the Season

The Centenary men's basketball team will play its final game of the 2011 season with IUPUI on Saturday at 4:30 pm in the Gold Dome.

LAST TIME OUT
The Gents proved most wrong when it snapped its 28-game winless streak in a 73-60 victory over Summit League foe, Western Illinois on Thursday evening in the Gold Dome.

PREVIEW: Gymnastics Travels to TWU for Tri-Meet

poster for Ladies

The Centenary gymnastics team will return to competition on Saturday when it travels to Denton, Texas to take on host-TWU and Illinois State at 7 pm.

The Ladies (2-8) are coming off a lengthy break as their last meet was back on Feb. 5 at TWU when they recorded their season-best team score in a 190.625 effort.

PREVIEW: Softball Hits Road for Three at UT-Arlington Classic

The Centenary softball team will hit the road this weekend for its second straight tournament as they prepare for three games at the UT-Arlington Classic, beginning Friday. The Ladies will open with Creighton at 11 am, followed by UTA at 3 pm on Friday, followed by Tulsa at 11 am on Saturday.

Centenary (0-5) is still looking for its first win of the season and first for first-year head coach Mark Lambert.

LAST TIME OUT
After a tough opening weekend on the road, the Centenary softball team was in search of its first win of the season when it met Grambling on Tuesday afternoon, however, the Lady Tigers secured a 6-0 shutout victory over the Ladies in non-conference action.

The Ladies (0-5) tied Grambling (5-2) in hits with six on the afternoon, but an inconsistent effort at the plate left eight runners stranded. Centenary also wasn't able to secure a sharp defensive effort, committing two errors.

Gents Tennis Earn First Team Win of Season

The Centenary men's tennis team captured its first dual match win on Tuesday in a 6-1 victory over future ASC opponent, LeTourneau.

The Gents (1-2) were dominant in almost all aspects on the afternoon, tallying five singles wins and two doubles wins.

Despite taking his competition to three sets, Micah Threadgill defeated Uli de la Fuente, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3. Garrett Whipple earned a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Josh Bailey, while Sam Grace defeated Ben Albers, 6-2, 6-3.

Also earning wins in singles action was Evan Magill over Josh Millet, 6-1, 6-0 and Michael Reeks over Kyle Lippe, 6-0, 6-1.

In doubles play, Jonathan Threadgill teamed up with his brother Micah to earn an 8-4 win over Carlos Cantu/Albers. Grace/Reeks also were victorious over their competition, Millet/Michael Vandergrifft with an 8-4 win.
