HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK:

A triple play is one of the rarest occurrences in baseball, but Covenant turned one on Saturday vs. Maryville. Caleb Bloye caught a pop-up bunt and tripled off runners at first and second to complete the program's first triple play. Watch below:

WEEKLY NOTABLES:

- Baseball senior Luke Harvey broke the program's career stolen base record with his 56th steal in Friday's 3-2 win over Maryville. Harvey eclipsed Will Cleland's mark of 55 career steal. Harvey now holds both the single-season (26) and career stolen base records at Covenant.

- Women's tennis seniors Claire Luger and Gracie Smith surpassed 40 career doubles victories each during the weekend. Luger and Smith, who are playing partners at No. 2 doubles, are both tied atop the program's career dual match doubles victories leaderboard with 41 wins each.

- The softball team went 4-0 on the week and scored a total of 44 runs in the process. Senior Jordan Brett and freshman Casey Grover provided much of the offense with three home runs and 14 RBIs combined in the wins. The 8-4 start to the season is the best 12-game start in the program's 10-year history.
