Aikens, Smith Earn USA South Cross Country Weekly Honors

WEEKLY NOTABLES:

- The women's soccer team continued its dominant defensive stretch to begin the year. The Lady Scots have yet to allow a goal in three matches and are 3-0 for the first time since 2010. Saturday's 1-0 overtime victory against Transylvania was also the first victory over the Pioneers in three matches all-time.

- Women's soccer sophomore Addy Cronan has been an offensive force so far. The transfer from Berry has tallied a goal in each of the first three matches of the year, including the game-winner in overtime in Saturday's win over Transylvania. Cronan leads the team with four goals on the year.

- Defense has also been strong for the men's soccer team. The Scots recorded two straight shutouts on the week and keeper Jonathan Crossman registered two shutouts and allowed just one goal in three matches last week.

- Volleyball sophomore Allie Jakes set a program record with 10 block assists in Covenant's 3-2 loss to Chapman on Saturday. Jakes had 14 total blocks in the contest, tying for second in a single-match in program history.

- Volleyball senior Schuyler Moore was named to the Emory Classic All-Tournament team. Moore nearly had a triple-double in the Classic opener with nine kills, 27 assists and 19 digs. She had 36 assists and 18 digs in Covnant's 3-1 win over Howard Payne during the tournament.
