Covenant Women Earn Post-Season Soccer Honors

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

The USA South Athletic Conference announced its selections for the women's soccer All-Conference teams on Wednesday afternoon and three Covenant players were honored on the third team.

Junior Bethany Logan, sophomore Ruth Terry, and freshman Andrea Hunt were all recognized for their efforts this season. Senior Mary Buys was Covenant's representative on the All-Sportsmanship team.

Averett's Sandra Johansson was named the league's Player of the Year, while Lauren Greeson of Greensboro earned Rookie of the Year honors and Maryville head coach Pepe Fernandez was Coach of the Year. All awards are voted on by the head coaches in the league.

Logan had a breakout year for Covenant as she leads the team with 11 goals to go along with two assists. The junior from Asheville, N.C., is seventh in the conference with her 11 scores. She registered her first collegiate hat trick in Covenant's 5-0 win over William Peace on October 26 and has scored in three straight matches going into Friday's contest. Of her 11 goals, five have been of the game-winning variety.

Although limited due to an injury for much of the second half of the season, Terry still had a solid season. The sophomore from Hoover, Ala., scored three goals and had a team-high four assists in 13 games played. All four assists came over two wins on consecutive days against conference foes Greensboro and Ferrum on the road. Those assists in conference play ranks fifth in the league currently.

Hunt played a major factor on the back line for Covenant. The freshman from Greenville, S.C., was part of a Lady Scots defense that held opponents scoreless for over 450 minutes during one stretch this season. As a team, Covenant surrendered 0.71 goals per game in USA South matches, including eight shutouts, and Hunt was leading the way. Hunt also added two assists for the season.

Covenant continues its season on Friday when they take on second-seed Piedmont in a USA South Women's Soccer Tournament semifinal match. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. in Martinsville, Va.
