Returning this year is Scots Weekly, a weekly publication that highlights the past week's Covenant athletic events with news, notes and more.
LAST WEEK'S RESULTS:
Men's Soccer (0-1)
Belhaven 2, Covenant 1
BY THE NUMBERS:
15: With the women's soccer team prevailing 2-1 in overtime on Tuesday at Oglethorpe, the Lady Scots kept alive an impressive streak. Covenant is unbeaten over the last 15 overtime matches going back to Oct. 3, 2009 when it lost 1-0 in two overtimes to Union (Ky.). Covenant is 6-0-9 in overtime matches since.
79: Total attacks for volleyball sophomore Ginny Moore in Saturday's five-set loss to Susquehanna. That set a program record for the rally scoring era. Moore's 79 attempts tops Shea Clingerman's 74 in a 3-2 win over UVA-Wise on Sept. 20, 2002. Moore tallied 19 kills in the loss on Saturday.
3: Three cross country runners set personal record times on Saturday at the Furman University Classic.
