Centenary celebrates big sports day

It was fun to be on the Centenary campus on Wednesday. Whether you were part of the throng that watched the Arkansas-Gents baseball game or the LSU-Ladies softball game, you made it a one of the best sports days for two sometimes neglected sports on the Kings Highway campus.

The Gents and Ladies didn't get to do a lot of celebrating, since they lost both games to nationally ranked clubs, but by bringing in the SEC teams, they exposed their programs to hundreds of area sports fans who otherwise would not have seen them play.

There's no telling how many hot dogs, boxes of popcorn and soft drinks that Centenary Athletic Director Glen Evans sold in the concession stand, but the numbers had to be significant when compared to your average Gents or Ladies basketball game.

Here's hoping there are more similar split-sport doubleheaders in Centenary's future.
