Boys Varsity Baseball · Spring Sports Senior Spotlight: Jack Hensley


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 Jack Hensley.  Jack has played baseball at Covenant for two years.  Here is Jack’s senior biography:

Final Word: To my coaches, teammates, and parents thank you for all of your support. Thank you for being by my side and helping me grow as a person, leader, and athlete.
