SEPTEMBER 6, 2016 - COVINGTON
Covington had a full night of volleyball in its sparkling new gym on Tuesday with three matches slated for the evening.
First, the Covington freshman team fell to Fort Loramie in two sets 25-14, 25-11, but the junior varsity squad lifted the emotions of the home crowd with a win over Tri-Village in three sets, 25-22, 22-25, 25-20.
The varsity Lady Buccs capped a fun night of Volleyball with a convincing three-set sweep of Tri-Village by the scores of 25-23, 25-10, 25-10.
"We had a nice lead in set one and let Tri-Village back in with some poor decisions," said Covington coach Lonnie Cain. "Sets two and three, we were in complete control. We played excellent defense and controlled the net with our best offensive output of the season. Hopefully we can build off of this contest and go into Newton with the same fire on Thursday."
