KG Foxes own the Battlefield District

History was theirs for the taking, and the Foxes did not disappoint! The Foxes destiny for notability was secured last Friday at Culpeper High School, when boys’ and girls’ outdoor track and field teams swept the Battlefield District Championship. The last time the Foxes conquered the district championship was five years ago, when the sport was dominated with legendary stars — the likes of Phillip Liggins, Shanna Harris, Stephond Owens, Cameron Rice and Courtney Venable.
Now that a new day is dawning, the Foxes are filled with a litany of stars ready to showcase their talents. Shearl Levere broke the school record in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 15.68 seconds. Levere was the point getter with three first place victories in the 100-meter hurdles, 300-meter hurdles (47.82) and the triple jump (34’7.50”). Levere also contributed points in a sixth place finish in the long jump (16’4.50”).

Long after Terry Santos has graduated and become a significant force in the corporate world, his name will forever be embedded in the annals of Fox history. Santos led the Foxes boys with two first place finishes in the 100-meter hurdles (14.85) and the 300-meter hurdles (40.29). Santos also placed second in the triple jump (43’.5”) and sixth in the long jump (21’2.75”).
 R.J. Brown also had a banner day with a first place finish in the 400 meters with a time of 50.79.
While the Foxes girls team (147) out-pointed their nearest competitor, Chancellor (132) by 15 points, the Foxes boys delivered a powerful statement with 103.50 points. Caroline took second place for the boys with 94 points. Throughout the regular season, the Foxes dominated the district and several track and field invitationals by consistently performing at their best, week after week.
The following Foxes have earn the privilege of competing for the Regional 1 Championships, at York High School, on Thursday, May 27:
Girls – Brittany Kersey, high jump, 4x400-meter relay; Shelby Philpott, pole vault; Amethyst Polk, 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, 400-meter dash, long jump, triple jump; Zuri Polk, 100-meter dash; 200-meter dash; Imani Murray, 300-meter hurdles, 4x400-meter relay; triple jump; Alexi James, 400-meter dash, 4x400-meter relay; Shearl Levere, 100-meter hurdles, 300-meter hurdles; long jump, triple jump; Lindsey Armentrout, 800-meters, 4x400-meter relay; Haley Armentrout, 1600-meters, 3200-meters; Ciara Mading, 3200-meters, Jessica Swenson, 100-meter hurdles, shot put; Shynarra Winder, shot put; Jessica Stephenson, 300-meter hurdles.
