CBHS Drifters 2011 varsity baseball preview

 

The “Black & Gold” fever for winning has returned to Colonial Beach in the form of legendary sports icon Steve Swope.

The last time Swope led the program, the Drifters were celebrating a Tidewater District Championship in 2009. Interesting enough, Swope’s return has ignited a huge interest in spring sports; both girls’ softball and boys’

baseball now field a junior varsity team, after a year’s absence.

“I am very enthusiastic about returning — I certainly needed a year away to recharge my batteries,” Swope said. “Now that I am back with a refreshed outlook, I’m looking forward to getting into the trenches, rebuilding something special.”

Senior Alex Gorfida will head the Drifter pitching staff, which is comprised of young underclassmen. Other Drifters on the pitching rotation who have the potential to make an impact are Josh Thomas, Gavin Lutz, Dion Gonzalez, Travis Irvine and David Allison.

The infield is comprised of Josh Thomas (catcher), Robby Sokol (first base), Travis Irvine (third base) and Dion Gonzalez (shortstop). Gonzalez and Lutz provide solid defense up the interior of the Drifter infield.

Speed, strength, and determination are three words that describe the Drifter outfield. The outfielders consist of Jason Vickery (left field), Michael Jackson (center) and Timmy Jackson (right field).

Sophomores Devin Davis, Davy Allison, Mark Singleton and Devante Harriss will provide depth in the outfield.
“These guys are taking everything in everyday in practice, working extremely hard, and are improving on a daily basis,” Swope said. “They are a fun group to coach and watch develop before our very eyes.”

With Colonial Beach supporting Swope, the hunger for success will inevitably lead to success in the win column for the upcoming varsity baseball program. The return of Swope’s staff, featuring Jonathan Parker and Randy Jones, will bolster Swope’s plans to groom his team into a competitive group of athletes who do not know the meaning of surrender.

“This season will present challenges for our ball club, because we will be young and inexperienced,” Swope said. “We’re trying to put together a foundation that will set itself in stone. If we build correctly this year, we will reap the benefits by this time next year, and the year after. We have the players to do something special.”

While the team is young, its members have shown a desire to hustle as they prepare for a doubleheader against the Maryland School For the Deaf this Saturday at Monroe Park. Game time is 11 a.m.
