2012 COVINGTON BUCCS BOYS TRACK TEAM...

Expectations are extremely high in 2012 for the Covington boys track team as it returns a ton of talent and ads some new faces to a roster of 30 kids.

"We are strong in every event," said Covington coach Kyle Moore. "The key for us is to stay healthy and keep improving. If we can do that, we could have a banner year."

A "banner" year is what Covington is shooting for - as in hanging a banner inside the gymnasium.

"Our primary goal is to win district," Moore said. "It's been a long time since we've hung a banner for boys track. We know it's going to be tough (to win district), but that's what we are shooting for."

And Covington has the horses, led by returning state qualifier Sam Christian. The senior will power the Buccs in the shot and discuss along with newcomer Cole Owens.

"Sam is motivated and wants to get back to the state meet this year," Moore said. "He didn't feel like he threw very well at state last year and he wants to get back there and do better this year."

The Buccs will be potent in the other field vents as well with Trent Tobias leading the way in the pole vault, Alex Baskerville in the high school and Troy Cron in the long jump.

The three will also compete in relay events, while Cron is the Buccs' leader in the hurdles along with freshman Ben Miller and sophomore Dalton Bordelon.

"Ideally, we'd like Miller and Bordelon to take ownership of the 300 hurdles, so Troy can focus primarily of the 110," Moore explained. "Either way, we have kids who will score points for us."

The Buccs have speed in the sprints and sprint relays with A.J. Ouellette, Alex Fries, Isaiah Winston, Baskerville and Tobias. The wild card is senior Sam Earick.

"A.J. has worked really hard and is much bigger and faster than last year," Moore explained. "Isaiah is Mr. Relay and the addition of Earick gives us so many more options. We're very excited about our short distance guys."

Sophomores Lane White and Dustin Fickert give the Buccs two dynamic runners in the mid to long distance races. They have company too in freshman Alex Schilling.

"Lane and Fickert work as hard as anybody we've had," said Moore. "I think they'll do some special things this year."

With the talent the Buccs have on the roster they are likely the favorites to repeat as Cross County Conference Champions.

However, Moore isn't putting the cart before the horse.

"On paper, yes, we probably are the favorites," he said. "But like I said, we have to stay healthy and keep improving. Nothing is guaranteed."
