VOLLEYBALL MAKES SPORTS CENTER:

It was quite the week for the volleyball program. The Lady Scots won three matches, but also made an appearance on ESPN's Sports Center after a crazy play occurred in the Maryville match on Wednesday... FULL STORY

Before going on Sports Center, the play was picked up by two NCAA accounts.

WEEKLY NOTABLES:

- The volleyball team is off to a 3-0 start in conference play after collecting three four-set wins last week. It is the first time since joining the USA South that Covenant has started league play with three straight wins, and the first time since 2012 that the program has accomplished the feat. The 2012 team went a perfect 10-0 in the Great South.

- The women's tennis team got its season going on Saturday with a win over Snead State. The match was the only dual contest scheduled for the fall for the program.
