1996: The last time the volleyball team defeated Piedmont in Demorest, Ga., before Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Lions. Covenant last defeated Piedmont in 2012, but that contest was held at a neutral site. The Lady Scots are 8-7 all-time against Piedmont.

2: The men's soccer team has beaten Berry in two consecutive seasons for the first time since 1970-71. The Scots shutout the Vikings 2-0 on Tuesday after defeating Berry 2-1 last year.

376:36: Consecutive game minutes in which women's soccer keeper Lucy Johnson did not allow a goal. Johnson had three straight shutouts going into Friday's match at Mary Baldwin before having her streak snapped.

13: The number of saves that Johnson had, a career-high, in Covenant's 0-0 draw at Birmingham Southern last Tuesday. It was the most saves in a contest for the Lady Scots since Hannah Bales had 16 against Salem on Oct. 18, 2011.

19: Number of seconds shaved off her personal record by Ruthie Cargill in the 5k. Cargill ran the University of North Georgia 5k in a time of 20:38, besting her previous best of 20:57 accomplished two weeks ago.
