Epic battle at Monroe Park

On Friday, Monroe Park in Colonial Beach became the scene of another epic battle between two cross-town rivals. For the third consecutive year, the King George (2-0) varsity football team defeated Colonial Beach High School (CBHS), 27-8. Born into this saga of double-A school versus single school was a gridiron chess-match played between the Foxes and Drifter coaching staffs.
Fans supporting both schools packed Monroe Park from end to end, with standing room-only areas provided for witnessing the Drifters’ debut into the 2010 regular season. Aside from the obvious fact that the Foxes’ 46-man roster seemed like an army compared to the Drifters 20-man contingent of players, fans witnessed a true account of iron-man football.
In the first quarter, the long-awaited war yielded a defensive stalemate. In fact, the first four possessions did not feature a first down for either team. However, later in the first quarter, after a Stephen Cocke interception, the Foxes offensive shifted in to fourth gear. With an opportunity to take the lead with a 35-yard field goal, the attempt fell aimlessly to the left.

Colonial Beach Drifter JV 2010 football preview

On Sept. 8, the Drifter junior varsity football team will embark on their 2010 Northern Neck campaign, with their first battle against double-A Battlefield District 2009 runner-up, King George. Not only will the upcoming battle against the Foxes become a monumental litmus test for the rest of their season, but it will also demonstrate the will of a program that has a tradition of winning.
Keith Dickerson has returned as head coach, along with his long-time assistant George Devers. The duo moved up to the varsity last season as full-time assistants. Prior to last season, Dickerson and Devers were responsible for two undefeated championship seasons in the Tidewater District.

Kids have a blast at annual Drifter baseball camp

The 16th Annual Drifter Baseball Camp was a huge success at Monroe Park last week, with 88 campers enjoying the grand ole game.  It was a smash hit as the youngsters’ enthusiasm rang out each day with a full week of fun on the fields.
Up and coming Drifter ball players were treated to a week of fun, games, trophies, camp T-shirts, evaluation cards, daily contests and solid fundamentals of America’s pastime.  Five different fields were used at spacious Monroe Park to keep four T-ball/Minor League teams and six Little League/Senior League teams rolling each day.   Campers rotated through 12 stations daily during the week.  Drifter Varsity and JV baseball and softball players helped coach – relaying valuable tips to campers on hitting, pitching, base running and defensive and offensive skills.
