AUGUST 30, 2021 - COVINGTON
The home gymnasium has been kind to Covington so far this season as the Lady Buccs captured their third consecutive win by defeating Anna 5-10, 25-20 and 31-29 on the home floor.
"We came out ready to play and worked as a team throughout the match," said Covington coach Ellie Cain. "Hitting errors almost cost us the third set, but we were able to take it one point at a time and pull it out."
The Lady Buccs hope to carry the momentum into Three Rivers Conference play tomorrow night against Troy Christian and then Thursday at Bethel.
The Buccaneer JV squad was defeated 11-25, 14-25 by Anna and is now 1-3 on the young season.
