Foxes varsity volleyball continues to set foundation

Foxes varsity volleyball head coach Jill Wine understands the importance of building an athletic program from the ground up. In spite of losing two matches in a row to Spotsylvania, and Caroline, and having to sit the post season out, Wine is optimistic that the future will yield a stronger Fox program.


The Battlefield District tournament will be held at King George High School, on Oct. 30 and Nov. 1. Barring a major turn of events, the tournament will feature Courtland, Chancellor, Spotsylvania, and Eastern View.
After two competitive seasons in the Battlefield District, a litany of clinics, and off-season skill set conditioning, the Foxes are on the cusp of re-establishing their team’s status in area volleyball. “We are still in the beginning stages of building a competitive volleyball program,” Wine said. “We have reached the point that the players, and parents know they need to play year round volleyball to be able to compete at the Battlefield District level.”
Most recently, two members of the Fox varsity volleyball program qualified to make the U18 Fredericksburg Volleyball Club team—which is one of the most competitive volleyball club teams in the area.
Along with featuring a U17 and U14 King George based volleyball team, Wine and her staff are entertaining the notion of adding two more age groups for a total of four travel team.
While the Foxes have their share of ups and downs, Wine has seen progress made on the individual and team level. “If you look at the junior varsity record (13-5, 8-4), you can see that our successes will be coming to the varsity,” Wine said. “Those girls will be moving up to the varsity within the next year or two with volleyball skills, and knowledge learned at a much younger age, because of the feeder programs.”

Varsity game one
The fight for a cure against breast cancer took on a new meaning during last week’s district match featuring the host Foxes and Knights. Proceeds made from vending concessions from the Spotsylvania game were donated to the Susan Komen Foundation.
Pressuring the Foxes into a six passing errors, a net violation, and a kill by Courtney Chmielewski, the Knights took a commanding 8-3 lead in game one. Although the Foxes collectively managed to tie the game on two occasions (11-11, 13-13), the Knights were able to sustain a series of two to three point leads to eventually win the game 25-21.

Varsity game two
Reminiscent of game one, the Knights started off with a four-point lead advantage. During the midway point, the Knights shifted into fourth gear, scoring nine points in a row. The 9-0 run featured three Fox passing errors, and kills from Katie Graham, Taylor Sale (2), and Caitlin Chmielewski.
Although the Foxes managed to cut the Knight lead to 21-10 on a kill and ace, the Knights eventually closed the game out on two kills from Courtney Chmielewski, to win 25-11.

Varsity game three
Defiant, the Foxes fought hard in the early stages of game three to avoid a Knight sweep. However, the Knights’ early 15-5 lead was a hole too big for the Foxes to dig out of. The early lead featured a 8-0 run with four Knight kills.
Later in the game, the Foxes feasted on five Knight passing errors, and five Fox kills to cut the Knight lead down to 22-15.
Spotsylvania eventually won (25-16) the game and match on two kills and a Fox passing error.
On Thursday, Oct. 25, the Foxes will play their final regular season game of the season. Results from the Tuesday game featuring Courtland were not available due to press deadlines.
