|2012 COVINGTON BOYS PREVIEW...
The Covington boys golf team has their eyes on the top spot in the league.
The Covington boys golf program has had its share of success over the past few years and the Buccs expect the same in 2012 with four returning letterman and a host of others who are capable of putting up low scores.
"I think we can definitely challenge in the league," said Covington coach Bill Wise "The teams in the league are pretty balanced, so I don't see a clear favorite."
Which Wise feels opens things up for Covington.
"It is open for us, but we will have to go out and prove it day in and day out," he said. "Nobody will be giving us anything."
Returning from last season are D.J. Seger, Ryan Craft, Joe Slusher and Sam Slusher, who was league medalist last season.
"Sam will probably be our top golfer this year," Wise said. "Him and his brother (Joe) were out there about every day this summer working on their games. They've both improved dramatically."
Wise also sees potential in his supporting cast.
"D.J. Seger is capable of being right there with the top golfers in any match," he said. "He's not quite consistent yet, but he's improving. Ryan (Craft) and Ben (Sherman) have improved a lot too. We have some kids who are capable of putting up some good scores."
Covington also has a freshman who will contribute a great deal throughout the season.
"Levi (Winn) is young, but for a freshman he's pretty good," Wise explained. "He has all of the tools. All he needs is more course time and he can be pretty good before it's all said and done."
And before it's said and done, Covington hopes a league championship is returned with the score cards.
