Christian Commits to Oakland...

Gray Harshbarger and Alex Shaffer look for return trips to the state meet.
2019 COVINGTON TRACK PREVIEW...
The Covington boys and girls track teams look to continue that tradition of success in 2019.

BOYS TRACK
The Buccaneers lost a lot of firepower from a team that was CCC and district runners-up a year ago, but coach Kyle Moore's squad still has plenty leftover to take aim once again.

Graduating off that team were Jett Murphy, Cade Harshbarger, Ethan Herron, Zach Parrett, Nathan Lyle and Ty Freeman, who combined to score a number of points at the state meet last year.

Returning letterwinners include seniors Hunter Alexander, Tyler Fraley, Gray Harshbarger and Sam Pritchard; juniors Andrew Cates, Fletcher Metz, Kadin Presser, Cade Schmelzer, Dalton Weer and Alex Shaffer; and sophomores Duncan Cooper, Logan Lowe, Deacon Shields and Bennett Welborn.

"We lost a lot of contributors to graduation, but that has happened in the past and we have always had the next classes step up," Moore said. "While we have a smaller team this year, I expect our guys to step up and perform well. (Hunter) Alexander and (Sam) Pritchard will lead our throwers."

Moore expects to be a balanced team.

"(Tyler) Fraley handles the jumps and (Gray) Harshbarger is back for a third run at the state meet with the mid-distance runner," Moore said. "Our junior class should be really strong and we will hope for solid contributions from our sophomore class as well. We will hope to compete for league and district titles again, though it won't be easy."

GIRLS TRACK
It was a dream season for the Covington girls track and field team last year, as the Buccaneers were the Division III state runner-up.

Graduating off last year’s team are state champions Rayna Horner and Breanna Kimmel, along with Danielle Alexander, Kelsey Dysinger, Tori Lyle, Shae Robinson and Danielle Rose.

Returning letterwinners include seniors Paige Boehringer and Lauren Christian, juniors Sarah Barnhart, Morgan Kimmel, Morgan Lowe and Maci White; and sophomores Sydney Hogue, Alyssa Kimmel, Kayla Mitchell, Tori Quinter and Ellery Reck.

David Tobias returns for his 19th season as head coach.

"Trying to duplicate last year's accomplishments might be a little harder for this team's overall placing as state runner-up," Tobias said. "However, those expectations are what will drive the team's four seniors. Numbers are down this year, but we always have the same goals - finish in the top three at conference and qualify as many as we can to state."

The Buccs still have some talented athletes.

"Lauren Christian is back in the throwing events after placing third at state in the shot put and seventh in the discus," Tobias said. "Chelsea Ford is a new face to the team and will run mid-distance races and relays. Morgan Lowe and Paige Boerhinger are back off the state champion 4x400 relay and state runner-up 4x200 relay teams."

Tobias is hoping for a top three finish at the CCC meet, with five league champions.
