Foxes boys’ JV overcomes JM to win title

On Monday evening, within the hostile confines of James Monroe High School, the two best boys’ junior varsity teams in the Battlefield District battled for the coveted 2010-2011 Boys’ Junior Varsity Basketball Championship. In the end, the Foxes dominated the Yellow Jackets for four quarters, leaving no doubt they have the best program.
The 55-47 victory over their district nemesis was nothing short of thrilling from beginning to end. Prior to Monday night’s championship game, the Foxes defeated the Yellow Jackets 61-57 on Friday night, during the final regular season game of the year. In light of splitting

KGMS boy’s basketball team win title

The road to success ended with the spoils of a title for the Foxes.
On Saturday, at the Culpeper Middle School gymnasium, the King George Middle School boys’ basketball team completed its season by winning the coveted annual Culpeper Winter Classic.
Prior to the tournament, the Foxes redeemed an earlier loss to Walker Grant Middle School with a decisive victory. During the two-day tournament, the Foxes defeated Floyd T. Binns (45-42) Friday, and Culpeper Middle School (48-27) the following day to win the title.

KG Foxes overtake JM Yellow Jackets in double overtime

It was an epic varsity Battlefield District boys’ basketball battle that will be talked about for ages. Long before the Foxes celebrated their 75-69 victory over James Monroe, there was war within a war that ensued for four quarters and two overtime periods. In the end, the quicker, more athletic Foxes’ will to win overcame their district visitors from Fredericksburg. DJ Lewis led all scoring with 27 points.
The Foxes are currently tied for second place with Courtland with a record of 5-4, 10-3-1, and it seems that the Joshua Luzier era in boys’ basketball has the potential to yield the next dominant Fox basketball team. Cautiously optimistic, Luzier spoke highly of his team after game.

King George Foxes boys’ third annual Winter Basketball Classic a blast

After a strong performance against two highly rated Southern Maryland basketball teams (McDonough, La Plata) and winning the third annual King George Boys’ Winter Basketball Classic, the Foxes rested well over the New Year’s holiday.
“The turn around we’ve had lately has been a pleasure to see,” said Josh Luzier, King George High School boys’ varsity basketball head coach. “The first three games we’ve played, we played great the first three quarters, but crumbled in the fourth. The last two games we’ve played we doubled up our points that we normally score in the fourth quarter — we’re becoming that team that finally has that killer instinct that can close. If we can close with a lead then we will that much better, because right now we’re holding our own to get back. The determination that our kids have now is leaps and bound over what it was.”
The marquee between the Foxes (4-3) and La Plata Warriors (7-2) went down to the final seconds of the game, with fans on both sides of the King George gymnasium screaming their hearts out. The two-day tournament gave fans a glimpse into the basketball leagues associated with Southern Maryland, and reunion of sorts as former Fox coach Eric Davis returned to his high school alma mater as the head coach of the Riverbend Bears (1-8).

The Hunt for KGHS Fox athletic success

Among the bastion of athletic talent that continues to thrive at King George High School are junior David and sophomore Matthew Hunt. The Hunt brother connection is an integral part of the success attributed to the Fox swim dynasty, baseball varsity and junior varsity success, and most recently the cross country program. Solid in all facets of sports, the Hunt brothers are without a doubt the role models that every athlete aspires to become. From their academic straight-A success in the classroom to their spirited volunteerism in their church, they are overachievers who continue to impact their community.
