The historic tournament run of the Covington Buccaneers continued as they won the program’s first district championship in 42 years by defeating Cincinnati Christian 4-3.
It has been 42 years coming, but the Covington Buccaneers finally got over the hump by winning the programs first District Championship since 1972 – holding off Cincinnati Christian by the score of 4-3 on Friday.
“Forty-two years coming and it means a lot to these kids and the baseball program,” said a delighted Covington coach Mitch Hirsch. “They worked hard for it – they’ve got the no-lose attitude and they deserve every bit of it, especially the three seniors.”
