The Covenant Scots finished their series against Tennessee Temple with a bang last week. After winning the first game in the series 10-0 last Friday, the Scots closed the series winning both games in Saturday’s doubleheader against Temple. The games finished out at 6-4 and 10-8 respectively. Reliever Demarius Johnson was the winning pitcher for the first game, and relief pitcher Brian Simons added the second win later that day.
As if last Saturday weren’t enough, the Scots won their doubleheader against Hiwassee College this Tuesday at home as well. The Scots played these last two home games with pizzazz, winning the first game 11-0, and the second game 10-1. “It was a good way to finish the at-home season,” said junior Brian Simons.
Both doubleheaders provided ample time for Covenant seniors to shine, and the seniors rose to the challenge. Seniors Jonathan Carter, James Rollins, Andre Glover, Tyler Smith, Demarius Johnson, and Eddie Jamerson will all be missed. Notably in Tuesday’s doubleheader, senior James Rollins hit his last at-bat out of the park…literally. “All the seniors played well,” said Simons. “It was good to see them leave playing so well at home.”
The Scots will play their last games of the season on Saturday in Atlanta against Point University. After a few days’ rest, the team will head to Paducah, Kentucky, to play in the NCCAA Mid-East Regional Tournament. If the Scots win the regional tournament they will travel to Mason, Ohio, to compete in the NCCAA World Series.
The team has a lot to be excited about as they end their at-home season. “This will give us a lot of momentum for the playoffs,” said Simons. The Scots’ flashy finish at home will certainly give the team a high wave to ride into the off-season.
