2022 BUCCANEER TRACK & FIELD
Covington coach Josh Long is extremely excited about the key returning lettermen and young talent he and his coaching staff have on this year’s roster.
“We are looking forward to having fun competing and getting better each week,” said Long.
In field events, Covington has a strong group of throwers back from last year’s team who will be looking to make an even bigger impact this year. The junior tandem of Ryan Rohr and Ryan Remley will look to lead the Buccs in shot put and discus. Joining the Ryan’s will be senior Adam Brewer, junior Ayden Reynolds, sophomores Garrett Hobbs, Hayden Barker, Grayson Wills, Talon Johnson, freshmen Gunner Francis, and Zeb Woodward-Roeth. Senior Landon LaPoint, juniors Hunter Ray, Jaeden Cole and freshmen Preston King will be competing in the long and high jump events for the team.
In the distance events, Covington is deep and talented. After winning a league title and qualifying several individuals for regionals in cross country, the distance crew will be looking to build on their fall success. Leading the way will be returning runners: senior Devin Brummitt, junior Mic Barhorst, and sophomore Asher Long. Joining these returning runners are a talented group of freshmen: Chris Deaton, Calub Hembree, Noah Chaney, Wyatt Parker, Beck Wilson, Matt Dieperink, and Preston King.
The sprinters consists of seniors Landon LaPoint and Owen Rawson, junior Hunter Ray, and sophomore Derrick Meyer – all are returning from last year’s team. Junior Jaeden Cole, freshmen Rowen Isaacs, Christian Jarvis, and Jack Blumenstock will also be looking to make a significant contribution to this year’s team.
After being in the Cross County Conference since 1991, Covington will compete in the newly formed Three Rivers Conference.
“Our new league will be really competitive,” Long said. “We hope to be competing to the best of our abilities when that time of the season comes.”
