After a jamboree debut that saw the Lady Chargers score 30 points in two quarters against St. Benedict with Felia Fayne collecting 16 of them, Covington opened the 2019-20 campaign at Trezevant last Tuesday.

The Lady Bears would have preferred that CHS had stayed home.

There was no mercy shown in a 69-7 beat down. The Lady Charger defense was so smothering that Trezevant made only one shot from the floor to go with 5-of-17 shooting from the free throw line.


Covington had 10 players get in on the scoring.

Junior point guard Kalynn Howard paced the team with 18 points, including 6 of 6 makes at the free throw stripe. Overall, the team connected on 19 of 26 tries and made five 3-point attempts.

DaNiyasia Robinson also reached double figures with 13 points as did Na’Kya Gilliam with 10. Brinley Cousar had two of the made 3s and eight points. Felia Fayne contributed eight points to the total and Trinity Taylor scored five.

Covington travels to Memphis Central on Nov. 23. The team then goes on a holiday trip to the Border Wars Tournament in Tunnel Hill, Ga. Nov. 25-27 before returning home to play Gibson County in tournament action at Gibson County on Nov. 29.
