LADY BUCCS SEND SENIORS OFF WITH WIN...
After dropping a non-league affair to Milton-Union on Monday, the Covington Lady Buccs responded on Tuesday with a thrilling five-set win over National Trail on "Senior Night".
Covington seniors Makenna Gostomsky and Lillian Hamilton were recognized with their parents prior to the final home game of the season.

OCTOBER 9, 2018 - COVINGTON
The Covington Lady Buccs played host to National Trail on Tuesday as it honored the two seniors - Makenna Gostomsky and Lillian Hamilton - on "Senior Night".

And after a horrid first two sets that saw miscue after miscue lead to a 0-2 deficit, the Lady Buccs responded in time to dominate the final three sets for the win.

"Not certain what happened tonight," said Covington coach Lonnie Cain. "We came out very flat. Maybe it was a carry over from last night with Milton - and then throw in the Senior Night atmosphere.  I'm just happy that we turned it around."

Things couldn't have gone any worse for Covington in the first two sets as it seemed everything went wrong for the ladies in black - missed serves, communication miscues, untimely hitting errors. Combine Covington's lackadaisical play with National Trail playing inspired volleyball, the Lady Buccs found themselves on the brink of defeat, 14-25, 20-25.

Fortunately the Lady Buccs were able to recover as they won the third set 25-11 to gain some momentum.

"We changed a few things on defense that seemed to work," explained Cain. "I need to recognize Sophia Iddings for her solid performance in our reception of serve and on defense."

With the Buccaneer ship steadied, Covington picked things up at the service line and dominated the final two sets 25-13 and 15-4 to escape with a five-set win.

"The girls lit it up from the service line tonight," Cain said. "We had twenty-two aces as a team."

Which made for a fitting end in the final contest on the home floor for seniors Makenna Gostomsky and Lillian Hamilton.

"Our seniors, Lilli Hamilton and Makenna Gostomsky, played their last match at home and I am happy that we could send them off with a win," Cain closed.

A win that improves the Lady Buccs' record to 9-12 overall and 6-5 in the CCC with a huge match at conference leader Miami East on Thursday to close out the regular season.
