It was a big week for our Warren County Christian schools as collectively four teams between Boyd Christian School and Covenant Academy took home Tennessee Christian Athletic Association championship titles.

With Covenant winning middle and high school soccer championships, Boyd winning the middle school tennis championship, and Covenant winning the high school tennis championship, the private schools in Warren County had much to be proud of this season.

Covenant has been atop the TNCAA division for tennis with its high school boys and girls winning more than losing. They played in the tournament on Monday in Nashville for the win. Covenant senior David Netherton won the boys singles division beating an opponent from Dayspring Academy, 6-2. 

Covenant senior Brandy Pennington won the girls singles division having to play her own teammate, Lydia Netherton, for the championship. They faced each other in the third round of the singles bracket where they then tied 8-8. Pennington beat Netherton by 2 in the 12-point tiebreaker.

Sarah Sharpe and Olivia Ward teamed against Clarksville Christian for the girls doubles winning 6-0. Pennington returned with Jackson Sauer in mixed doubles to win 6-4 against Dayspring.

Covenant came out on top in both the TNCAA regular season and tournament. Covenant ended this year with six TNCAA titles altogether in cross country, volleyball, high school boys basketball, high school tennis, and middle and high school soccer.
