Hilt and Johnson are Covenant Players of the Week

LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- Softball pitcher Cori Hilt and baseball relief pitcher Demarius Johnson have been named Covenant Players of the Week for the week of February 27 - March 3.

Hilt, a freshman from Altamont, N.Y., saw action in both games of a doubleheader sweep against Tennessee Temple. Hilt picked up her first win of the season in the first game by throwing four shut out innings while allowing just two hits and striking out six. In the second game, Hilt threw the final two innings and did not allow a hit to go along with five strikeouts.

Johnson was instrumental in Covenant's 9-7 comeback win over Berry College. The lefty received his first victory of the year after going the final three innings in relief. The senior from Douglasville, Ga., allowed two hits and one earned run while striking out three and walking one.
