The New Covenant Boys and Girls basketball teams both secured wins against Easley Christian on Tuesday night as their respective strong seasons continue to march forward.
The New Covenant boys had a strong showing on both offense and defense as they defeated Easley by a score of 68 to 40. With the win the Cavaliers improve their overall record to 12-3 while also moving to 5-2 in the South Carolina Association of Christian School (SCACS) 1A Region I. The Cavaliers have one remaining Region I game on Thursday at Tabernacle Christian. Regardless of whether they win or lose, the New Covenant boys have locked up second place in Region 1A meaning they will host a quarterfinal game on Friday, February 9th with the chance to go to the SCACS 1A State Tournament (2/15 and 2/16 at Grace Christian School in Columbia) with a win.
Meanwhile, the Lady Cavs also had a strong game against the Easley Eagles. New Covenant raced out to a 14-0 lead by the end of the first quarter and extended the lead to 38-0 through three quarters. With the 46-8 victory the Lady Cavs improved to 13-2 on the season and clinched their second straight SCACS 1A Region I championship with a perfect 6-0 record. Now the Lady Cavs are waiting to hear if they will have a quarterfinal game on Thursday, February 8th or if they will get a bye to the SCACS State Tournament (2/15 and 2/16 at Grace Christian School in Columbia).
Next up for the Cavaliers will be the boys traveling to Tabernacle on Thursday for their final 1A Region I game and the girls traveling to Abbeville to take on rival Lighthouse in a non-Region match-up.

I first attended New Covenant School in kindergarten and part of first grade and after being homeschooled I returned for my eighth grade year. The past five years at New Covenant have been an amazing opportunity to grow in both my education and my faith. I feel that my classes have instilled the necessary skills for college life both in academics and in the ability to think for myself and be firm in my doctrine and faith. One particular class that I enjoyed taking was Omnibus. This class was a combination of class discussion and lecture, and it allowed me to debate and defend what I believe. While I did not necessarily enjoy the work load, the Omnibus class gave me life skills that will help me when I am no longer in the Christian environment which I am in right now.
While attending New Covenant I’ve been given the ability to enjoy many extracurricular activities. I was in the dramatic productions Arsenic and Old Lace, Death by Design, Wait until Dark, and Harvey. I was also involved in sports including a year of Cross Country and three years of varsity basketball.
I hope to attend Clemson University in the fall. I pray that I will be able to use the knowledge and Biblical teachings which I received while attending New Covenant to further the kingdom of Christ in both my words and actions.
