MAY 16, 2013 - COVINGTON
It's been five days since the Covington Lady Buccs saw the field for live action and Dean Denlinger's team was chomping at the bit to play again.

"The break was nice, but it sure is good to play again," said Denlinger. "We got a lot accomplished in practice and the girls were ready to get out on the field again."

Fresh and focused after earning a first round bye, Covington made quick work of Botkins by the score of 15-0 in five innings.

And in the process, senior Casey Yingst struck out 12 of the 15 batters she faced in recording a perfect game.

"She was dominating," said Denlinger of Yingst. "And Casey got stronger as the game went on. She threw hard and her change-up was working nicely."

And Botkins didn't have an answer for Yingst's arsenal of pitches as she struck out all but three batters in the contest. Just two balls were hit into fair territory by the Trojans, one to Heidi Cron in shallow left field and the other a grounder to Jessie Shilt at second base. The other out came on a caught fouled ball by Morgan Arbogast at first base.

Offensively, Covington hit the ball at will, spreading out 17 hits by ten Lady Bucc hitters in four at bats.

Jessie Shilt and Connor Schaffer both went 3-3 with Shilt connecting on a triple and Schaffer smashing two doubles and three RBI.

Brittanie Flora, Morgan Arbogast and Haley Adams went 2-3 on the day. Arbogast and Flora drove in two runs each and Adams drove in a run as well.

Alex Gast and Cassidy Cain both connected on doubles with Gast's being a two-run double in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Heidi Snipes drove in a run on an RBI triple, while Brooke Gostomsky and Jessie Crowell each singled.

"We hit the ball vey well," praised Denlinger. "The girls did a nice job of staying back and driving the ball today."

With the win, Covington advances to play Russia in the sectional final next Tuesday at Tipp City. Russia defeated Lehman 13-5 Thursday.

The game is slated for 5:00pm.
