COVINGTON – Wednesday was a memorable evening for the Covington softball program as seniors Kamryn Barnes and Karyanne Turner were honored on “Senior Night” capped by a 15-3 win over Northridge.

Barnes and Turner are two players who represent the tradition and culture of the Covington softball program due to their hard work and willingness to do what is best for the team. This has been evident as both have switched positions over the course of their careers. They were key contributors in helping the Lady Buccs reached the Regional Final and also helping develop a group of talented young teammates this season.

The 15-3 win over Northridge was one where Covington allowed just one hit on the night, but surrendered three runs – one on an error and another on a passed ball.

Freshman Stevi Newhouse started in the circle and threw three innings to pick up the win. Jayda McClure threw the fourth and fifth inning to record the save.

Covington racked up 12 hits on the night with Kamryn Barnes leading the team with three hits and three RBI. Kylie Palsgrove had two hits, one bing a triple, while Karyanne Turner, Ava Hartwig, Bella Batdorf, Emma Ouellette, Jayda McClure, Nell Rogers and Stevi Newhouse all recorded one hit each.

The win improves Covington’s overall record to 16-7 and closes out the TRC record at 11-3, which is second in the league behind Miami East.

The Lady Buccs close out the regular season on Saturday by hosting the Covington Classic where they will play Xenia and Fairborn.
