|2010 COVINGTON BUCCS GOLF TEAM...
Loaded with experience and talent, the Covington boys golf team looks to challenge for the conference title.
The expectations for the 2010 Covington golf team is at an all-time high with the return of every player on the varsity roster, which includes senior Eric Beckstedt, Martin Leistner, Andrew Tobias and Devan Selanders.
The four have played at the varsity level since they were freshman and look to led the Buccs to a Cross County Conference Championship.
"We finished runner-up last year, so obviously our goal is to win the CCC this year," said Covington coach Bill Wise. "We're going to have to play consistent to do it."
Beckstedt and junior Christian Carder were all-league performers last year, while Selanders and Tobias were special mention. Junior Sam Slusher also returns to the lineup.
Covington's junior varsity group has potential as well with junior Wes Root and sophomore D.J. Seger pushing the varsity guys. In all, Covington has fourteen kids in the program.
"Our numbers are good and has been for a few years now," Wise said. "That makes for competition to see who gets to play in varsity contests."
The competition on Covington's schedule is strong as well with the likes of non-league opponents like Versailles and Russia, along with the defending CCC Champions, Bethel.
Which should prepare the Buccs for post season tournaments.
