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

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.

It was a dream fulfilled for the King George High School junior varsity baseball team. Last Thursday, at Ross Memorial Stadium at Spotsylvania High School, the Foxes narrowly defeated East View 2-1 to win the Battlefield District junior varsity baseball championship.
After losing to Courtland in last year’s championship, the Foxes finished the season with a nail-biter of an ending.
“We gave them the same goal that we gave them last season,” Fox junior varsity baseball head coach Nick Simmons said. “It wasn’t about coming out and winning every game or going undefeated, but to give ourselves a shot at making it into the championship again. Once we made sure that we were in, we gave ourselves a new goal, which was to win it.”
