2009: Was one of two Eagles named to the All-Big Sky First Team. Selected to the Big Sky All-Tournament team for her performance against Northern Colorado in the semifinals, where she tallied a team-leading 14 kills and 10 blocks. Led the Eagles in blocks during the entire 2009 campaign, registering 144 total blocks, which included a team-high 17 solo blocks. Etched her name in the EWU record book in three separate categories; ranking fourth in single-season blocks (144), fifth in single-season blocks per set (1.35) and fifth in career blocks (367). Her 1.35 blocks per set average ranked 19th in the NCAA and second in the Big Sky Conference. In addition to her defensive prowess, Coviare was second on the team in kills (314) and total attack attempts (691), while ranking 10th in the conference in kills. She hit above .400 on five separate occasions during the 2009 season, with her best effort coming in a sweep of UNC (Oct. 13), where she recorded a .571 (13-1-21) hitting percentage. Had a career-high 12 blocks against Northern Arizona (Oct. 15), while also tallying 14 kills for her first of three double-doubles on the season. Those 12 blocks tied the most for any BSC player in a single game during the 2009 campaign. Led the Eagles in their final regular-season contest, recording 19 kills and 10 blocks, which helped EWU advance to BSC postseason tournament for the 14th-consecutive year.

2008: Coviare had an outstanding 2008 campaign and was rewarded for her efforts with second team All-Big Sky Conference honors. She finished the season ranked 112th among NCAA Division I players, and fourth in the Big Sky, in blocks per set (1.04). The sophomore also placed 10th in the league in hitting percentage (.241, 224-97-528). She was an especially intimidating presence down the stretch, averaging 1.22 blocks per set over the final 14 matches. Three times in 2008, she combined 10+ kills with hitting percentages greater than .400. Her best offensive showing came in a four-set win over Montana, as she hit .476 (13-3-21) in that contest. Coviare recorded double-digit kill totals 11 times in 2008. She also had seven blocks in a match on three separate occasions.

2007: Coviare had the offensive match of the year for the Eagles, hitting .750 (17-2-20) in the team’s 3-2 win over Colgate on Aug. 31. She was literally perfect the final three sets, hitting 1.000 in those stanzas (8-0-8). Coviare also had an outstanding showing versus Northern Arizona on Nov. 1, as she hit at a .526 clip (12-2-19). In fact, Coviare had four of the five best hitting percentages recorded by an Eagle in 2007. Her block total of 10 in a dramatic 3-2 win over Northern Colorado on Nov. 3 tied for the second-highest total of the year by an Eastern player. For the season, Coviare led EWU with 1.04 blocks per set. It was also the 241st-highest average among NCAA Division I players.
