drop match

COVINGTON — The Covington volleyball team lost to Versailles 25-14, 25-5, 25-15 Monday in non-confernce action.

“We ran into a good team tonight in Versailles, they are well coached and played with intensity throughout,” Covington coach Lonnie Cain said. “We couldn’t contain their middle hitter Danielle Winner and when we did we were hitting against a very strong block.

“In sets one and three we battled and worked hard. Set two we couldn’t handle the serve of Paige Phillip – I believe she ran off 17 points. We will need to re-group.”

Rachel York had nine kills and four digs for Covington, while Ashley Cecil led the defense with nine digs.

The Covington freshman lost 25-11, 25-13; and the JVs lost 25-17, 25-15.

Covington, 7-11, will host Miami East Thursday in CCC action.
