LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- The Covenant cross country programs, under fourth-year head coach Katie Stanford, have released their 2014 schedules. The teams will have identical schedules as they compete in eight events this fall.
The season begins on Aug. 29 when Covenant hosts the Mountaintop Invitational. This will be the third consecutive year that Covenant has hosted the season opener on its course. Both teams were victorious last season.
September will be the busiest month of the season with three events scheduled beginning with the Sewanee Invitational on Sept. 6. The following week, the teams will travel to Helen, Georgia to compete in the Saucony Invitational, hosted by Truett-McConnell. After a week off, Stanford's squads will compete in the University of North Georgia Invitational on Sept. 27.
In October, Covenant will travel to the Maryville Invitational on Oct. 4 and the Berry College Viking Open on Oct. 18.
The men's team will try and defend their USA South title at the Conference meet on Nov. 1 in Greensboro, North Carolina. The Scots claimed the school's first official conference title in Division III last season, while women's runner Beth Burgess captured the individual crown.
The teams will end the scheduled part of their slate on Nov. 15 at the NCAA Division III South Region meet hosted by Berry College.
