LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- The complete spring schedule for the Covenant men's tennis team was recently announced by head coach John Hirte. Covenant will play 19 matches, along with a full USA South schedule in 2018.

The Scots, who enter the spring with a 1-0 overall record, will open the spring portion on Feb. 10 against regional foe Birmingham Southern on Lookout Mountain. The contest will be one of 10 home matches for the Scots.

Covenant will also host Belhaven and Hanover in a doubleheader on Saturday, Feb. 17 to round out the home contests in the month of February. In non-conference matches at home, the Scots will also play Roanoke (March 9) and Brevard (March 24). Brevard is a member of the USA South, but will not count towards league standings as the institution reclassifies from NCAA Division II to Division III.

Also in non-conference play, Covenant will travel to regional powers Berry (April 4) and Sewanee (April 10) along with a trip to Oglethorpe (March 1).

Covenant will begin its defense of the USA South West Division title as conference play begins in earnest in the final weekend of February. The Scots travel to face LaGrange (Feb. 23) and Huntingdon (Feb. 24) to open league action. The conference home opener is set for March 3 when league newcomer Berea comes to Lookout Mountain.

Other key conference home dates include Piedmont (March 20), Huntingdon (March 30), and LaGrange (March 31). Covenant also hosts Maryville on Friday, April 6, which will also serve as Senior Day.

The USA South Tournament is set to begin on Friday, April 13 in LaGrange, Ga., as part of the USA South Spring Festival.
