Eagles & Drifters 2012 spring sports highlights

 

The highlights of the 2012 spring sports season gave fans an opportunity to cheer, scream, and take a moment of reverence.

The recent retirement of Washington & Lee varsity football head coach Malcolm Lewis was a complete shock to the sports community. His stature in the sports community went beyond legend; he is the definition of a sports icon.  

His record of 123 victories, and 58 losses included a Division II State Championship, and three Region-A titles. He brought out the best in the teams he coached, and the rivals he coached against.

As for the Eagles boys’ varsity soccer team, they captured their first soccer championship in school history by defeating Essex 1-0. 

The Eagles boys’ track & field team finished the season by winning the coveted Region-A Track & Field Championship. 

The Eagles baseball team finished one game behind Essex for second place in the Northern Neck District.

CBHS Drifters

Although the Drifter baseball team barely missed a trip to the Northern Neck District playoffs, they did give fans at Monroe Park a chance to sit on the edge of their seats. Steve Swope (coach of the year), Nick Graves (utility), Dion Gonzalez (outfield), and Kamron Smith (second base) received Northern Neck District honors for their stellar performances on the field. After losing one player to graduation, the Drifters will be stronger next season.

The Lady Drifters varsity softball team made a huge jump in the win column, as they finished with a 10-10 overall record. In recent years, the Drifters have struggled to maintain a winning advantage in the Northern Neck. Carley Graves, Madison Gorfida, McKenzie Conway and Erica Willford were honored with Northern Neck District Softball All-Academic selections.

The Drifters girls’ middle school softball team defeated Northumberland 10-6 to win the Northern Neck District for the first time ever in the school’s history. Future varsity stars such as Amber Jones, Deniya Newman, and Kenzie Cox helped their team dominate their division throughout the season. 

The 2013 spring season promises to take the excitement level up a notch in the land of Black & Gold.
