Faith Egnolf signed to attend and continue her golf career at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, IN. Egenolf has had a standout career in both golf and tennis during her time at CCHS. She helped the Girls Golf team advance as a team to regionals in 2017. She also advanced as an individual to the State Finals in 2018, finishing in 50th place, the highest finish ever for a Covenant golfer, male or female, in the state finals. Faith, a 3-time All-City Team selection, also set a program record for the lowest nine-hole average score for season this past year. She has been a key contributor on the tennis courts as well, helping the Lady Warriors to a sectional title in 2018. Faith plans to study Marketing at IWU.
Ashlyn Hastings will also be attending IWU to run Cross Country and Track. Ashlyn has been a standout runner for Covenant for each of the two years that she has attended. She holds the program record in Cross Country (19:27.9). She also earned All-City and All-Conference selections in 2018, as well as advancing to the semi-state. She finished 42nd overall in the semi-state, the highest finish by a female runner in program history. Hastings plans to study Illustration and Graphic Design.
Maclain Hastings signed to attend and play soccer for Indiana Wesleyan, where he plans to study Small Business Management. Maclain was a great goal scorer and teammate in his two years at CCHS. Maclain led the team in points in both seasons, scoring 29 goals and 10 assists, while helping to lead the Warriors to back-to-back Class 1A state runners-up finishes in 2017 and 2018.
Cam Holsapple, who officially signed his letter of intent to attend and play football at the University of Indianapolis on the football signing day on February 6, has been the most prolific kicker in Covenant Football history. Cam holds or is tied for every kicking record in program history for both punting and field goals, including longest FB (37 yards), longest punt (76 yards), and points scored. Holsapple is the first CCHS football player to sign to play for a Division II school, and plans to major in Business Entrepreneurship while kicking for the Greyhounds.
Ethan Hurt will be attending Wabash College and running track next year. Ethan was a starter on the Boys Soccer team this past season, as well as a standout track athlete. He will be a team captain for track & field this Spring. Hurt is a member of the program record 4×400 relay team, and has been a catalyst for culture development in the track program this past off-season. Hurt plans to study Political Science at WC.
Noah Martin also signed to attend and play soccer at Wabash, where he will major in Financial Economics. Martin was a key component in the defense for the Warriors’ soccer team the last few years, helping to post nine shutouts this past year. Martin was the C. Eugene Cato Mental Attitude Award winner for Class 1A Boys Soccer at the state finals this past year.
Sam Probst will be attending and competing in both soccer and track & field at Trinity Christian College in the 2019-20 school year. Probst was a very versatile player on the Boys Soccer team this past year, playing multiple positions as well as being the team’s backup goalkeeper. He competes both as a runner and a thrower in Track and Field, and will be a team captain who has also been key to the culture shift in the track program. Sam plans to study Entrepreneurial Management at TCC.
Jacob Susud signed his letter of intent to attend and play soccer at Taylor University in Upland, IN. Jacob was a four-year soccer player at CCHS, and was the varsity starting goalkeeper the last three seasons, posting 17 career shutouts. Susud’s career highlight is playing the state finals each of the last two years. Susud will major in Sport Management at TU.
For several years, the tradition at Covenant has been individual signing events for each student athlete. This year was the first time that CCHS has held a larger signing event. There are plans for a second signing night later in the Spring.
