LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- The Covenant women's tennis team is set to begin the spring portion of its schedule in early February, as head coach John Hirte recently completed the slate.

In all, the Scots are scheduled for 19 regular season matches, with 10 of those taking place at the Covenant Tennis Complex.

Covenant starts the spring at Birmingham Southern on Feb. 9 as one of five matches in the month. Covenant also travels to Oglethorpe (Feb. 16) before opening the spring home schedule on Feb. 22 against Centre followed by home matches with LaGrange (Feb. 23) and Piedmont (Feb. 26). The Scots open March with trips to Maryville (March 1) and Berea (March 2) along with a neutral site contest with Transylvania (March 2 at Berea, Ky.).

The early season matches against LaGrange, Piedmont, Maryville, and Berea will not count towards league standings. Covenant will play each team again later in the year that will be for USA South play.

Home matches in the month of March include Warren Wilson (March 15), Berry (March 22), Berea (March 23), and Wesleyan (March 30). The home match vs. Berea is currently slated to be Senior Day.

Covenant then rounds out the home schedule in April with contests against region power Sewanee (April 5), along with USA South foes Agnes Scott (April 9) and Maryville (April 20). Also in the month, the Scots will have key conference road dates at Brevard (April 6) and Huntingdon (April 12) and LaGrange (April 13).

The USA South Tournament is set to begin on Friday, April 26 at LaGrange, Ga., as part of the USA South's Spring Festival.

Covenant will open the spring with a 0-1 overall record.
