BOEHRINGER WINS COVINGTON INVITE...
Lady Bucc senior Paige Boehringer overcame a muddy and slippery course to unseat the defending champion at the Covington Invitational on Saturday.

Paige Boehringer takes the final strides across the final line on Saturday.

SEPTEMBER 2, 2018 - COVINGTON
Covington senior Paige Boehringer has already had a stellar career in track and cross country with state medals and state appearances in both sports.

And even though it's not a state medal, Boehringer was very excited after winning the Covington Invitational in her final appearance on the home course at the Covington FOE Eagles Farm on Saturday.

"It's my senior year and I just won the Covington Invitational," Boehringer said. "What more could I ask for? Can’t top this."

To accomplish her goal Boehringer had to not only overcome the defending champion from last year’s race (Becca Seger of Russia), but a sloppy course as a steady flow of rain poured down for much of the race.

"It was really slick," she said. "All I kept think about was not falling down. But I love the rain. It keeps me cool."

Boehringer also loves the challenging course, which she is very familiar with due to the training the Lady Buccs have put in on the course.

And she took advantage of the brutal hills to pull away from the field.

"I noticed she (Seger) had dropped back when we turned the corner by the bean field," she explained. "When I made the final turn I could hear everyone cheering as I turned towards the finish line. It was an amazing feeling."

Boehringer's time of 20:29.0 was well ahead of Seger's runner-up time of 20:46.6.

Also scoring for the Lady Buccs, who finished fourth as a team, were were Ashlyn Plessinger, 6, 22:00.0; Chelsea Ford, 21, 24:15.6; Alexis Meyer, 36, 25:40.5; and Kayla Mitchell, 59, 31:31.2.

The Covington boys finished sixth out of the 13 teams competing on the day with Bennett Wellborn leading the way with a 13th place finish as an individual in the time of 18:34.9.

Owen Boehringer and Fletcher Metz came across the finish line in 28th and 29th respectively as Boehringer finished in 19:31.3 and Metz at 19:31.7.

Also scoring for Covington were Covington scorers were Ian Benedict, 34, 19:50.2; and Zane Barhorst, 48, 20:39.5.
