2016 VOLLEYBALL PREVIEW... The Covington Lady Buccs look to challenge in the CCC with a talented roster of experienced players.
COVINGTON - Veteran coach Lonnie Cain is back to coach Covington volleyball - his second season of his second stint as head coach. He previously coach at Covington from 1987 through 1998.
Covington finished 10-13 overall last year and 8-5 in the CCC.
Graduating off that team were Brooke Gostomsky and Arianna Richards.
Returning letter winners include seniors Rachel York, Savannah Schaurer and Ashley Cecil; and juniors Brie Dieperink and Breanna Kimmel.
"This is a fun group that is eager to learn and natural competitors," Cain said. "Last season we dropped a few five set matches that hopefully with another year of maturity we will come out on top this season. I am hopeful that we can improve on last season's 8-5 league record and match the challenges presented by some top notch non-league matches against Jackson Center, Anna, New Bremen, Versailles and Miami East in the CCC.
"I expect the Buccs to improve every time we touch the court, be fun to watch and to be competitive while representing Covington in a positive manner on and off the court."
Cain hopes to be in the mix in the CCC this season.
