Athletes Rise to the Top in September

September has been an exciting month for the Covenant Eagles. The state champion Football team and the Girls Varsity Field Hockey team have been featured several times by news outlets.
This week, the rankings show that the Boys Soccer is ranked #1 in the state for Division 2, Girls Varsity Field Hockey is ranked #4 in their division, and Senior Ella Dalton is ranked #6 in the Ragged Mountain Cross Country Poll. This past weekend, the Girls Cross Country team placed 3rd out of 21 teams. In addition, the Girls Varsity Field Hockey team was praised for their incredible sportsmanship at a recent game. “More important than any win or loss is the opportunity to demonstrate Christ's love to those we come in contact with,” commented Academic Dean, Bill Zimmerman. We are so proud of our student athletes and their demonstration of what it means to be compassionate and courageous students and athletes. The fall sports season has only begun, but we can’t wait to see what they achieve next!
