Covenant women's soccer junior goalkeeper Rachel Lemay was named the USA South Defensive Player of the Week, for the period ending Sept. 10, 2017, announced the conference on Monday afternoon.

It is the third time in her career that Lemay has earned the honor.

Lemay, a junior from Apopka, Fla.
, posted two shutouts as Covenant went 2-0 last week. In 186 minutes in net, Lemay stopped all 11 shots she faced. In a 4-0 win over Belhaven, Lemay made five stops before making six saves in a 1-0, overtime, victory against Transylvania on Saturday.

Lemay's play has helped Covenant to a 3-0 start, the first since 2010, while the team has yet to allow a goal. Lemay has the most minutes played without allowing a goal in the USA South this season at 262:11 and her two complete-match shutouts are tied for second in the league.

Covenant (3-0) will be back in action on Wednesday at Sewanee. Match time is set for 8:30 p.m. EDT.

Reflections On Billy Graham

Sandra and I are saddened this morning after learning of the death of Billy Graham. We rejoice today, because Mr. Graham once said "It will be reported that Billy Graham has died, but that won't be the truth. He said the truth is that he had only moved to a new location".  I remember when we named 15th Street as Billy Graham Avenue, his daughter Gigi came for the dedication ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: We’re The Angriest State

WalletHub, a financial-health website that has found it can draw a lot of attention by ranking the states on which is “fattest,” smartest, and so forth, has just announced its “sinful” rating and Tennessee churches should be ashamed of the job they are doing in making the Volunteer State a haven for puritans.
