Covenant Eagles Basketball Wrap-up!
The Covenant Boy’s middle school team was comprised this year of 7th and 8th graders. Many of the team members have been part of the squad since their 6th grade year. The three year veterans went from a season of 5-6 wins in the 6th grade to 11 wins their 7th grade year to 20 wins their final season as 8th graders. The 20-4 record is quite possibly the most successful in program history. The final game of the season was played in Parkersburg vs Parkersburg Christian where the young eagles pulled of a 12 point win after being down by one at the half. It was an exciting and successful year for the program. Congratulations to Caden Bailey, Gage Davis, Miles Dickinson, Alex Smith, Griffin Spaulding, Ryan Beilstein, Braden and Branson Bussey, Gabriel Hagley, and Sutton Rotten! Coach Brian Hagley
Our Varsity girls have ended this basketball season with a record of 19-5! We had some blow-outs, some hard-fought victories, and only couldn’t get the best of two of our rivals in the regular season. We were 17-4 going into the tournament, where we lost the first game but won out the rest. Our final win solidified us as the champions of the consolation bracket. This season was one of great transitions and would not have been possible without our four fearless seniors; Eden Bumgardner, Tori Blankenship, Karleigh Collins, and Grace Hagley. We will certainly miss them, but look forward to coming out next year with a lot of heart and a team that will undoubtedly be fun to watch. Congratulations also to Faith Jackson, Elizabeth Kelly, Alyxis Ramey, Kassie Venoy, Abbie Wayne, and Emma Yeager. Coach Sarah Jones
The Middle school Lady Eagles finished the season on a high note by winning two of their final three games. Our team goals this season were number one to learn to compete in life in a Christ centered environment, second to HAVE FUN! Third to IMPROVE DAILY. Sophia Wayne, Olivia Akers and Elia Yon contributed to our success as fifth graders. Annabella Spaulding and Ella Bumgardner lead the team in scoring as returning players. Grace Hutchison and Kenzie Venoy rounded out our team. The lady eagles are excited to improve their skills in the offseason and are looking forward to next season. Congratulations girls! If your daughter would like to participate next season as a 6th, 7th, or 8th grader, please contact Scott Bumgardner at 304-544-4349. Practice begins after fall break. Coach Scott Bumgardner
The Varsity boy’s experienced a “season of change.” This group of boys banded together and matured into young men. They embraced the “we over me” mantra and played selflessly. We finished the regular season 18-5, a vast improvement from last year. In the NCSAA tournament, our 35th ranked Eagles beat #42 ranked Shalom Christian. In the semifinals, a 6′-9″ phenomenon leading the 23rd ranked team from New York proved to be too much to handle. In our final game, these young men played their hearts out trying to send our two seniors out with a victory, but the 20th ranked Lebanon Christian prevailed. And like that, the season was over at 19-7. This was definitely a special Covenant Eagles basketball team. Congratulations to Johnathan Turley, Braden Roten, Nate Beilstein, Mack Herbert, Josh Roten, Samuel Roten, Kamren Helmstetler, Gabe Roberts, D.J. Scarberry and Justin Holley. Congratulations boys! Coach Lance Herbert, Assistant Coach Jason Helmstetler
