|BUCC BOYS CLAIM CHAMPIONSHIP...
MAY 18, 2013 - WEST ALEXANDRIA
The Covington boys track team took home a team championship, while the girls took runner-up in the 2013 Cross County Conference Championships on Saturday in what was a record-setting day for the black and white.
The Covington Buccaneer Boys Track Team continued to bring home hardware after claiming the Cross County Conference Championship on Saturday with 135 team points - 31 points ahead of second place Twin Valley South.
And what makes the accomplishment that much more impressive is the fact that Covington competed without two of its top performers, A.J. Ouellette and Lane White. Both were heavy favorites in the 100 and 400, as well as the 200 and several relays.
Still, Covington came home with championships in three individual events and two of the four relay events.
Leading the way was senior Troy Cron, who swept the 110 (15.09) and 300 meter hurdles (39.71). His time in the 300 meter hurdles broke a meet record.
Ryan Craft took the place of White in the 400 meter dash and claimed a championship in the time of 51.67 - an impressive accomplishment considering it was just the second time Craft has ever competed in the event.
The 4x400 meter relay team of Ryan Craft, Brandon Magee, Alex Schilling and Dustin Fickert set a new meet record with a time of 3:29.19, while the 4x200 meter relay team of Dalton Bordelon, Trent Tobias, Brandon Magee and Dustin Fickert claimed a championship in a time of 1:35.15.
