2018 Covenant men's cross country

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- The Covenant men's cross country team will take part in the USA South Instagram Takeover this weekend as the Scots travel to Berea, Ky., for the Mike and Mary Kay Invitational on Saturday.

Be sure to follow @USA_South on Instagram to get updates and a behind-the-scenes look at the team during the weekend, starting on Friday, Sept. 15. 

Covenant had to alter its race plans for the weekend. The Scots were originally scheduled to compete in the Furman Classic in Greenville, S.C., but that event was cancelled due to Hurricane Florence. Instead, the Scots will travel north to Kentucky and compete in the Berea-hosted Mike and Mary Invitational. Berea is the defending USA South champion, and the preseason favorite to repeat as champions, giving Covenant a chance to see one of the top programs in the conference ahead of next month's USA South meet.

Over the course of the academic year, the USA South has various member institutions and selected athletic programs "take over" the league's Instagram account for a weekend. The initiative has helped the conference rank in the top five in NCAA Division III in total followers on Instagram.
