It was a week filled with some rare occurrences in Covenant athletics. Men's golf captured a tournament title, men's soccer defeated Berry, women's soccer knocked off Tennessee Temple, the volleyball team cruised again and the cross country teams had another strong showing.
BY THE NUMBERS:
2: The number of team tournament titles in the history of Covenant men's golf after the Scots claimed the Piedmont Fall Invitational last week. The last time it happened was on March 24, 2008 in the Covenant Invitational.
3: The total number of individual golf tournament title winners in Covenant history. James Van Nice shot a two-day 151 to take the top spot in the Piedmont Fall Invitational to become the third golfer to win an individual crown. The other two took place in 2009 (Dave Wilkinson and David Spencer).
2002: The last time a Covenant men's soccer team defeated Berry before this week when the Scots scored two second half goals for a 2-1 win in Rome. According to Berry records, it was just the third time since 1982 that Covenant has been victorious over the Vikings (28 matches).
1: The number of career goals by Sophie Gianis and the number of career assists from Kaitlyn Winking. The two freshman women's soccer players earned collegiate-firsts in Saturday's 4-1 win over Tennessee Temple.
2: The number of personal records set by the cross country teams from returning upperclassmen in Saturday's University of North Georgia Invitational. Jack Williams ran the 8k in a time of 31:41.6 and finished 11th, while Esther Anderson also placed 11th with a 5k time of 21:14.
The volleyball team is off to another great start as they are 6-2 to begin the season for a second straight year... Men's soccer has tied their first two home matches of the year which marks the first time since 2008 that the Scots have not been victorious in either of their first two home contests... In each of their three events this season, both cross country teams have placed better than their counterparts from the USA South... Speaking of the USA South, Covenant teams begin conference play this week
