Senior Story, Whitner Cann Class of 2018

image1I attended New Covenant School from Kindergarten through 5th grade, then returned my Junior year after 5 years at another private school. When I returned to New Covenant my junior year I made the varsity basketball team and I have enjoyed being part of a State Championship team. I have learned a lot from Coach Miller and it was incredible to have an undefeated season. It was an honor to play with a great team and to go on and win the 1A State Championship. We are having a great season I am looking forward to winning the State Championship again this year.

I have great memories of my years at New Covenant including: hiding in the slide on the first day of K5 from Mrs. Andreasen, performing “Albuquerque, He’s My Turkey” in 2nd grade with Mrs. Wyse’s class, laughing and joking around in Mr. Wilkes class, working on the yearbook staff, and many great year end “field days.” The greatest part of New Covenant is the little things that build lasting memories. Every time I go to sign out, Mrs. Lopez always smiles and tells me to have a good day. Although small instances, they make the New Covenant experience “lit.”

I am looking forward to graduating in May. My plans are to attend Tri-County Technical College in the fall for college transfer classes and then pursue a business degree at Clemson University. I’m thankful for the teachers I have had during my time at New Covenant to prepare me for my future. Go Cavs!

Basketball Update

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).
