Anna Swain and Hannah Rogers also added four kills each. Stephanie Kirkpatrick had 13 assists. Estes Carlson and Mariah Corney led the Covenant defense with nine and eight digs, respectively. 

Wellesley was just too much to overcome for the Lady Scots. The Blue had 46 kills led by Brooke Fieldman's 10. Hilary Ayers had 17 assists and four service aces while Traci Hamanaka registered 15 digs.

Covenant will look to bounce back on Saturday as they play two matches. The Lady Scots face Emory & Henry at 10:30 a.m. and then No. 4-ranked, and tournament host, Emory at 1 p.m.
