Senior Chandler Spring was named to the Hoosier Basketball Magazine's list of Top 100 Seniors. Chandler is the first player Covington player to be named to this list in many years. This is not an honor that many small school players receive. Chandler is one of just a handful of players from Class A schools that made the list.
Other players on our schedule that were named to the list include: Riggs Baxter, Western Boone, Grant Gayler, North Montgomery, Anthony Harris, Griffith, and Ethan Woodrow, Fountain Central.
Congratulations to Jordan Ahrens, Travis Coleman, Bryce Cooper, and Chandler Spring for being named to both the all-conference team and the All Bi-County teams. This is the 4th consecutive time that Bryce has been named to these teams. Jordan and Chandler have been named to these teams the past 3 years and Travis Coleman is a repeat honoree. Gage Hegg was named honorable mention.
In the 11 years that I have been at Covington, I don't recall a school getting 4 players on the all conference team. It is quite an honor for our players and our program. Their all conference and all Bi-County status is definitely a byproduct of our team's success. The Trojans are 14-0 the past two years in WRC games. While we finished undefeated each of the past 2 conference seasons, no other conference team finished with less than 2 losses in either year. Our record in games vs the Bi-County teams over the past 3 seasons has been nearly as impressive. While winning 3 Bi County Tournaments in a row the Trojans have an overall record of 15-1 in all games vs Bi County teams.
1st and 2nd grade basketball games are cancelled for this morning.
I had several coaches express concern that we had 1st and 2nd grade practices scheduled at the same time we are playing Seeger tonight in varsity basketball. Cancelling tonight's practices seemed to be in most peoples best interests. Hopefully if you had your schedule cleared for practice tonight, you will be able to come to the varsity game instead. The varsity boys have already clinched the conference championship, but are hoping to finish the WRC schedule undefeated with a victory tonight over the visiting Patriots. I've included the current WRC standings below.
