2014 CROSS COUNTRY PREVIEW...
The Covington Cross Country Program has the potential to have a historic year in 2015.

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY PREVIEW
The anticipation is high for another successful season on the cross country course for the Covington girls as the Lady Buccs return their top five runners from a year ago, including two state qualifiers in junior Carly Shell and sophomore Anna Dunn.

"We're excited," said Covington coach Josh Long. "We missed qualifying for state as a team last year by seven points and have four of those runners back. Anna (Dunn) and Carly (Shell) both qualified (for state) last year and are hoping to return this year with the rest of their team."

Covington won a league championship, finished runner-up in the district and was a regional qualifier as a team a year ago with a team that only lost two seniors to graduation.

Seniors Heidi Cron and Cassidy Cain return a year stronger, while juniors Julianna Yingst, Meghan Parker and Shell round out a talented group of upperclassmen.

Sophomores Allison Babylon and Dunn both lettered as freshman and a talented group of Danielle Alexander, Kelsey Dysinger, Lauren Houshel, Tori Lyle, and Sara Retz join the team in 2014.

With an mixture of experience and talent, Long sees potential for a historic season.

"This group has the potential to finish the season a week later if they continue to work hard and stay healthy," he said."

And Covington will be challenged in the CCC with some very good teams.

"Our league is going to be very competitive this year," Long said. "We hope to be in the mix at the end of the season."

GIRLS TEAM: Kneeling (L-R): Lauren Houshel, Cassidy Cain, Heidi Cron; Standing (L-R): Meghan Parker, Carly Shell, Julianna Yingst, Sarah Retz, Anna Dunn, Allison Babylon, Danielle Alexander, Tori Lyle, Kelsey Dysinger.

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY PREVIEW
Covington graduated four runners from last years district runner-up and regional qualifying team, but returns plenty of talent to make another run in 2014.

"Nate Dunn, Alex Schilling, and Sam Sherman were all three in our top five last year and they hear the clock ticking, so they have been working incredibly hard," said Covington coach Josh Long.

Schilling, Dunn and Sherman will likely lead Covington once again in the majority of the races, but the Buccs have a quality group of returning letter winners who wills core valuable points throughout the season - Jared Hagan, Ryan Hembree, Josh Sowers and Cale Wagner.

Junior Conner Ryan also has potential to be one of the top five runners in his first year of Cross Country after playing two years of football.

Plus, the Buccs have a very talented group of freshmen in Hunter Brumbaugh, Mark Barga, Matt Carder, Mason Dilley, Spencer Hogue, Dylan Kelly, Tanner Kimmel and Nathan Lyle.

"We have several boys that will be competing for the rest of the varsity spots, which will make us much better as the season progresses," said Long. "Our goal is to continue to improve throughout the season and run our best when it counts."

In a very competitive Cross County Conference, Covington will surely be tested late in the season.

"Our league is going to be very competitive this year," Long said. "If our boys continue to work hard and stay healthy we should be in the mix for league."

Which hopefully leads to a strong push at a state birth.
