SCOTS IN THE NEWS:
Women's Basketball's Price Featured in Chatter Magazine
LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- Covenant women's basketball junior Rachel Price was recently featured in the September issue of Chatter Magazine, a monthly publication from the Chattanooga Times-Free Press about local events and showcases.
Price was interviewed about her bout with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that she was diagnosed with in the fall of 2012 while still in high school at Sale Creek. Price has been in remission from the disease for two years and was a starter for Covenant last season.
BY THE NUMBERS:
20: Number of kills for Volleyball's Ginny Moore and Chelsea VanDyk in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Washington & Lee. It's just the second time since 2001 that Covenant has had two players record at least 20 kills in the same match. The last time it happened was Oct. 7, 2006 vs. Tennessee Temple when Kate Hampson (25) and Joanna McGill (20) accomplished the feat.
53: Number of assists for volleyball's Schuyler Moore in a 3-2 loss to Washington & Lee. That set a new career-high for the sophomore and is the most assists in the program's history since college volleyball went to 25-point sets. It is also the most assists in any match since Anna Lee's 64 assists vs. Montreat on Nov. 3, 2006 (which set a current program record).
1: A pair of men's soccer players registered their first career goals this week. Senior Bryce Bartelt notched the eventual game-winner in the Scots' 2-1 win over Sewanee on Tuesday and also recorded an assist in the victory. On Friday, sophomore Isaac Johnson notched his first goal in a 6-1 loss to Montclair State.
4: For a fourth straight year, the cross country teams swept the Mountaintop Invitational. Junior Graham Massot won for a second consecutive year on the men's side.
6: In his first collegiate tournament, men's golf freshman Marshall Kent finished sixth at the Piedmont Fall Invitational. Kent had a two-day scored of 152 and fired a 73 in the final round to place in a tie for sixth overall.
