Coed Varsity Track · Spring Sports Senior Spotlight: Alex Walker


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 Alex Walker.  Alex was part of the Covenant Track & Field program for two years.  Here is Alex’s senior biography:

Parents: Angela Walker

Career Highlight(s): Going to City Tournament

Favorite Sports Memory: Winning sectionals in Boys Basketball

Favorite Class: Business

Future Aspirations: Gap Year in Panama

Favorite Bible Verse/Quote: Romans 8:38-39 — “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Final Word: I want to thank all of the track coaches for dedicating their time to making our team great and fun. Mr. Wildman is an amazing example of not only being an inspiration through his faith, but he truly believes in each individual and encouraged us to be the best people, not just athletes, that we can be. I also want to thank my mom (Coach Walker) for all of her hard work she puts into the throwers and for inspiring me and supporting my love and passion for this sport. Though I am saddened by the short ending of our season I want to thank all of my teammates for supporting each other and making our team strong.
