Coed Varsity Track · Spring Sports Senior Spotlight: Nate Sloan


The COVID-19 pandemic has had great impact throughout the world in the last six months.  Locally, in addition to the obvious health affects that this virus has caused for so many people that have either gotten sick and some have died, the stay at home orders have had significant affects on everyone.  One of these things is the loss of the Spring Sports season.  This has impacted so many, from professional sports, the collegiate level, high school and middle schools, all the way down to the recreational level.  While so many have been affected, it is especially disappointing for the Class of 2020 who have lost their final HS season to compete for their school, enjoy their sport with their friends, and have the opportunity to impact others and grow themselves.  Because the Spring Sports seniors will not have the opportunity to be honored at a Senior Night for their respective sport this season, the Athletic Department will honor one senior from a Spring Covenant athletic team each day to honor them for their time as a CCHS athlete.

Today’s Senior Spotlight is Nate Sloan.  Nate has run on the Track & Field team for four years.  Here is Nate’s senior biography:

Parents: Jim & A.J. Sloan

Career Track Highlight(s): Breaking the 4x 400 record with close friends

Favorite Sports Memory: Going to Eagle Creek to do long runs with the distance team

Other Activities: Cross Country, DECA, Guys Prayer Group, Guys Discipleship

Favorite Class: Intro to Business

Future Aspirations: Study Business at Indiana Wesleyan University, attend Indiana University for graduate school

Favorite Bible Verse/Quote: 2 Timothy 1:7 — ” . . . for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” (ESV)

Final Word: I would like to thank Mr. Wildman for being one of the biggest mentors for me and my process of high school. He has shown me so much and taught me how to grow up and see the world in a different way. Coach Wildman was the man who baptized me and I will never forget that. My life has forever changed because I have him in my life. Getting to have so many memories over the past four years has been a blessing to my heart. Thank you, Wildman, for helping me become the man I am today.
