Drifters return from Disney World baseball competition

It was a well-deserved rest for the Colonial Beach High School varsity baseball team. After returning from a relaxing trip to Disney World, in Orlando, FL, the Drifters are now focused on the potential of winning the Northern Neck District crown.

The Drifters entourage of 38 coaches, players and parents, along with four families, totaling 11 people, made the journey to the greatest amusement park on earth. The entire cast of Drifter supporters and players split time in three theme parks - Magic Kingdom, MGM, and EPCOT.  In addition, they also found time to relax in the swimming pools at the Caribbean Resort.

On the diamond, at the Wide World of Sports Complex, the Black & Gold ran into a brick wall. The Drifters lost to Springboro High School, from Springboro, OH

(18-2), and Paideia High School, from Paideia, GA (21-0).

Drifter two game stats include: Kamron Smith, 3-6 at the plate, doubling in a run and scoring another run; Smith’s teammate, Nick Graves went 2-4, that accounted for one RBI; Dion Gonzalez, 2-4, RBI, and run scored; Jason Vickery, Josh Thomas, Sidney Horton, one hit apiece. “Not many of the Drifter components were working, as they were dominated by two strong lefties in the two game series,” Swope said.

It’s back to business for the Drifters this week, a they open the Northern Neck District play by traveling to play arch-rival Washington & Lee, on Wednesday, April 11, at 5 p.m.

On Saturday, April 14, the Drifters will celebrate their annual Happy Clam 100, at Monroe Park. From 9 a.m., present and former Drifters will play 100 innings of baseball. Barefoot Greens Restaurant owner, Richard Moncure, sponsors the all-day event. Moncure has sponsored the event since the day of its 1984 inception. Admission is free.
