Top Scots Moments of 2012-13
Scots fans had countless opportunities to paint up and cheer for their teams during the 2012-13 athletic season. The Scots baseball team competed in their first National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) World Series, the Lady Scots volleyball team finished their regular season conference play undefeated, and Mark Duble earned his 200th career coaching win during homecoming weekend. It’s nearly impossible to name the best Scots memories of 2012-13, so the Covenant athletics department is asking students, alumni, and friends of the college to help narrow down their top-five favorite moments of the 2012-13 sports season.
The 11 nominees in no particular order are:
Women’s Soccer – Head coach, Mark Duble, earned his 200th career coaching win in a 3-0 homecoming victory over Tennessee Temple.
Cross-Country – Men’s and women’s cross-country hosted a meet for the first time in recent memory. Both teams won first place.
Men’s Golf – Trey Patterson finished sixth in the NCCAA Golf Championship and became Covenant’s first All-American golfer.
