King George Foxes field hockey forges ahead


King George high school field hockey news update

Taking giant steps forward with the eventual hope of contending for the district championship one day, the King George High School (KGHS) field hockey program is steadily making progress. Rebuilding for the future with a speedy, athletic junior varsity program, and the promise of a spring season feeder system in the form of the King George Youth Athletic Association could impact the Fox field hockey program in positive direction.
Last week, the Fox varsity field hockey team lost in overtime, 1-0 to Eastern View;

Foxes rally past Cougars in barn-burner

altThe Foxes’ (1-0, 3-1) latest 43-28 win over Battlefield District rival Courtland (0-1, 0-4) on Friday night at their home field, “The Pit,” is a solid indication that they are unquestionably for real. The victory propels the Foxes into a second place tie with James Monroe (1-0, 3-1), and a showdown with division leading Eastern View (2-0, 3-1).
The Foxes travel to play the Cyclones on Friday, Oct. 9 — game time is 7:30 p.m. The Cyclones are known for their offensive attack; most recently they defeated Chancellor (0-1, 2-2) 39-27.  King George will need everything, including the kitchen sink, when they battle the suffocating Cyclone defense. As for Courtland, they will face a team with an identical record next Friday, in the form of Spotsylvania (0-1, 0-4).
The Foxes’ next home game will feature their homecoming against Chancellor, on Oct. 22, at 7:30 p.m.

Foxes defense, special teams clip Eagles

The line to get into “The Pit” to witness the last time the Washington & Lee Eagles would play the King George Foxes in the notorious stadium was longer than a football field and five wide.  This game is a game everyone marks down on the calendar once the schedule comes out, mainly because it’s the first game, but more importantly it is King George vs. Washington & Lee. 
The game, which seemed competitive for the first quarter, quickly changed into a game of miscues for Washington & Lee and a game of opportunities to take advantage of for King George.  Midway through the second quarter, return man Bryan Burrell couldn’t control the punt and fumbled it where a pack of Foxes were waiting.  After a scramble that seemed to

A renewed KG soccer focus realized at Elite Soccer Camp

King George High School soccer 

Mark Perry, King George High School junior varsity soccer head coach, and social studies teacher, has a new perspective on coaching and taking the Foxes to the next level. From July 5-10, Perry and 17 soccer players from King George attended the Elite Sports Academy Camp, at Sweet Briar College, in Amherst, Va. The camp consisted of two-U 14 teams and two-U 12 teams.
King George had the largest contingent of players at the camp, with other high schools featuring two to three players. Campers endured steamy temperatures that soared up into the nineties, while taking advantage of a rare opportunity to learn from one of the most highly acclaimed soccer coaches in the country, in the form of Virginia Tech men’s soccer head coach, Oliver Weiss.  Weiss has coached the Hokies since 2002, compiling a record of 68-39-16.
