Expectations are high for the 2019 volleyball season as the Covington Lady Buccs return seven letter winners from a year ago and ad young talent to the roster.

COVINGTON - Lonnie Cain returns for yet another season as the Covington volleyball and what he sees when he walks into the gym is a talented roster with seven returning letter winners from a year ago.

Yes, Covington did lose two very good players to graduation in Makenna Gostomsky and Lillian Hamilton and also lost sophomore standout Makenzie Maschino to an unfortunate knee injury during the off-season, but the Lady Buccs have the potential to challenge in the Cross County Conference due to the experience that returns to the floor in 2019.

The senior class of Olivia Mohler, Marisa Fields and Sophia Iddings provide the leadership, while juniors Alyssa Kimmel, Tori Quinter, Ellery Reck and Hillary Hoying return after significant varsity experience a year ago. These seven provide a solid nucleus for Covington to build a foundation for success.

Joining the ranks after playing at the junior varsity level last season are juniors Destina Wills and Bethany Weldy, along with sophomores Bree Reynolds and Emmaline Kiser.

The newcomers to the program and varsity lineup will be freshmen Lauren York, Nigella Reck and Reaghan Lemp.

The goals for Covington are the same as in years past - challenge in the conference and improve throughout the season in order to be playing the best volleyball possible come tournament time.

"Our team goals are to improve every time we step onto the court," said Covington coach Lonnie Cain. "We hope to finish in the top position of the league and advance in the tournament."

The CCC is loaded once again, with perennial state power Miami East leading the pack - a program who is going for its tenth straight league title in volleyball.

Plus, Arcanum and National Trail are expected to field strong teams.

But Covington is capable of being in the mix if the kids keep the right mindset.

"As always, we want to represent Covington in a positive manner," Cain said. "And it should go without saying, we want to have the players enjoy their high school experience."

Goals which are attainable with the talent Covington brings to the floor in 2019.
