JANUARY 4, 2020 - COVINGTON
Adversity has become the norm for the Covington Lady Buccs, but once again they answered the bell by defeating Mississinawa Valley 63-35 for a fourth consecutive win.

Playing without senior Morgan Lowe, who was injured a day ago during practice, the Lady Buccs once again had to make adjustments on the fly - which has become a common theme for first-year coach Brandon Studebaker.

Earlier in the season Covington lost talented sophomore Makenzee Maschino with a season-ending injury. Then, before Covington could find its rhythm, the winter bug hit over the holiday break.

All of this, plus a tough early-season schedule, left Covington sitting at 2-6 heading into the Holiday Tournament.

But Covington was able to rally as a team to knock off rival Newton and Milton-Union to gain some momentum. The Lady Buccs followed with a second win over Newton on Thursday before seeing Lowe go down Friday in practice.

Battle tested physically and mentally, the Lady Buccs took things in stride on Saturday as the starters picked up their games and bench players emerged to contribute greatly.

In all, three Lady Buccs scored in double figures with sophomore Claudia Harrington leading the way with a game-high 24 points. Claire Fraley, another sophomore, contributed with 13 points, while junior Ellie Hedges had a career-high 10 points. Senior Josie Crowell dropped in seven points as well.

Each point was critical as the defensive focus for Mississinwa Valley was shutting down Morgan Kimmel - a strategy that limited the senior to four points. But Kimmel displayed her team-first attitude by dishing off the basketball to open teammates for easy buckets.

With Lowe on the mend, freshman Meg Rogers came up big at both ends of the floor - scoring five points and playing solid defense.

At the end of the afternoon the Lady Buccs improved to 6-6 overall and 4-2 in the CCC. Covington looks for improved health next Thursday as Tri-Village comes to town.
