Covenant's Cronan And Burrell Honored By USA South

Monday, October 15, 2018 - by Andrew Mindeman
Covenant women's soccer junior Addy Cronan was named the USA South Player of the Week and freshman Kailey Burrell collected Rookie of the Week honors, the conference announced on Monday.

It is the first career weekly honors for both players. It is also the first time this season that a Covenant player has garnered a weekly honor from the USA South.

Cronan, a junior from Knoxville, Tn., scored two goals and had three assists on the week as Covenant went 3-0.
The junior scored a goal and had an assist in the Lady Scots' 5-0 win over Berea last Tuesday. She then scored the game-winning goal in the fifth minute of overtime to defeat Huntingdon, 2-1, last Friday. Cronan capped her week with two assists in Covenant's 10-0 rout of LaGrange on Saturday.


Burrell, a freshman from Trenton, Ga., tallied four goals and an assist during the week. The freshman had a pair of two goal matches, the first two of her collegiate career, as she scored twice in wins over Berea and LaGrange. Additionally, Burrell had an assist in the victory over Berea last Tuesday.

The play of Cronan and Burrell led Covenant to a 3-0 week, with all three wins coming against USA South foes. The Lady Scots outscored their opponents 17-1 on the week as Cronan and Burrell combined for six goals and four assists.

For the year, Cronan leads Covenant with nine goals and 21 total points, while Burrell is second on the team with eight goals and 19 points. Both players lead the team with three assists apiece.

Covenant (8-6-1, 5-2 USA South) travels to face Emory on Wednesday in Atlanta. Match time is set for 7:30 p.m.

Roy Exum: The Lamar Rants
