KG Foxes girls dominate Caroline Polar Bear meet

First impressions are lasting, and the Foxes girls could be stronger than ever. After cruising to a commanding sweep over North Stafford, New Kent and Caroline during the Caroline Polar Bear track meet last Wednesday, it’s apparently certain that the Foxes girls’ winter indoor track and field teams are back for another successful season.
Foxes winter track and field head coach Rudy Pekarek is confident that his girls’ contingent of potential Regional stars have a strong chance of repeating or possibly improving up last year’s second place performance.
“If they maintain, stay focused, and put a strong work ethic in they should challenge for the Regional championship,” Pekarek said.

King George Foxes look ahead to the future

Although the Foxes (2-5, 4-6) ended their season losing to Caroline (2-5, 2-8) 15-12, on Friday, in the larger picture, all is not lost. The Foxes were leading until the fourth quarter, when the Cavaliers offense broke the game wide open with an 85-yard touchdown run. Although the Cavaliers initially opened the scoring by returning a fumble for 38 yards in the first quarter, the Foxes received offense support from the backfield. In the second quarter, D.J. Lewis scored from 4 yards out to cut the Cavalier lead to 7-6. Tevin Jones also scored on a 1-yard run and a 59-yard touchdown completion to Steven Cocke. The Foxes also had to overcome two dropped touchdowns and four fumbles.

James Monroe JV rolls over King George Foxes

The defending Battlefield District junior varsity football champions James Monroe High School continued their district dominance last Wednesday with their 36-6 victory over King George.

King George Foxes are still alive in playoff hunt

After narrowly defeating the Knights 34-28, the Foxes are still in the playoff hunt. For their part, the Knights did not play like a winless 0-8 overall team. In fact, they bravely fought back and rallied in the second half to take a temporary lead, only to have the Foxes foil their wishful upset with solid defensive effort in the final minute of the game.
With only two games remaining in the season, the million-dollar question that most Fox fans are asking is there any possibility of a playoff showing for King George? The answer might surprise you, especially when you consider that the Foxes are in sixth place after ending a three-game victory drought. At 2-3, 4-4, the Foxes have a remote chance of participating in the Regional playoffs provided certain events take place. Under the umbrella of being in Division IV, the Foxes must win the remainder of their regular season games (James Monroe, Caroline).

Chancellor Chargers foil KG Foxes homecoming

 

Fox varsity wide receiver Kelsey Monroe (#14) overcomes several Charger tacklers for crucial yardage.

It was an epic Battlefield District varsity football game that will be remembered for years to come. After a dominating first half by Chancellor, the Foxes rallied back to come within two points of winning their homecoming football game. With 5.4 seconds left on the clock, Chancellor’s interior line rose to the occasion and blocked a field goal attempt by King George kicker Steven Cocke.
