Harris and Hirte Earn Covenant Players of the Week

LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- Beginning their respective seasons strongly, softball player Beth Harris and men's tennis player John Hirte were named Covenant Players of the Week for the week of Feb. 20-25.

Harris helped lead the softball team to a doubleheader split against Maryville College and had a monstrous afternoon against Cumberland University. The senior went 2-for-3 with an RBI in a 2-0 win over Maryville last Wednesday. On Saturday, Harris went a combined 4-for-6 with three home runs and four runs batted in at Cumberland. During one stretch of four at-bats over two games against Cumberland, Harris hit three home runs and a double with four RBIs. For the season, Harris is batting .500 with three homers and five RBIs.

Hirte was key in leading the Scots' tennis team to a 9-0 victory over Maryville College to begin the 2012 tennis season. The senior from Maple Grove, Minn., won his singles match by scores of 7-5, 6-2 over Maryville's Zach Clark. Hirte then teamed up with Tom Yates to record an 8-1 doubles victory.
