- Softball pitchers Carsyn Stone and Tyler Epes combined to throw a no-hitter in Covenant's 16-1 game one victory over Rust. The five-inning no-no was the sixth in program history and the first since Cori Hilt's on April 9, 2013. It also marked the second time that a Covenant team has no-hit Rust as Chelsea Krafft and Beth Harris combined for one on March 19, 2012 against the Bearcats.

- Besides pitching, the softball team also scored a bunch of runs on Saturday. The Lady Scots scored 13 runs in the third inning of game two, to set a new program record for runs in a single inning. Covenant had previously scored 12 runs in one inning against Sewanee on March 13, 2014.

- Women's basketball sophomore Joanna Smith has scored double figure points in eight straight games. Smith averaged 13.6 points on the week to help the Scots to a 2-1 record against USA South competition.
