There is a spark in Fox basketball that will soon turn into a flame. Last season fans got a glimpse of the future of King George varsity boys’ basketball. Now that former head coach Jeff Smith has laid a foundation, new coach Tony Clark has arrived to cement a proud and honored tradition of competitive basketball.
Thus far, Clark’s team has taken on four of the toughest teams in the area —Lancaster, Hylton, Washington & Lee and the defending Virginia AA Division IV state champions, Courtland. With a dominating victory over Lancaster during a scrimmage to start the season off, and a wire-to-wire win (95-85) over cross-town archrival Washington & Lee, the Foxes are well on their way to success. The losses to Hylton (74-49) and Courtland (61-57) will only strengthen their ambitions as the season unfolds. In addition, both Lancaster and Hylton competed in the state championship last season, and have returned the core of their team.

The Foxes are back in championship form. On Friday, the Foxes swim teams celebrated their home opener with a triad victory over the Culpeper Blue Devils and the Spotsylvania Knights. Leann Miller punctuated the victory with two wins that included two state qualifying times in the girls 200-meter IM (2:37.24) and the girls 100-meter butterfly (1:11.29).

They are the most dominant team in district history. After sweeping the District championship in boys’ and girls’ events, King George High School is back to defend the bragging rights to the Battlefield District.
Although the Foxes have lost their two top female swimmers (Kathleen Lyon and Shalice Perry) and three top male swimmers (Curt Albert, Joe Gibb and Dave Boucher) to graduation, they pose a huge threat to repeat last year’s dominance with the following swimmers: Amanda Ackerman, Alexandria Bentz, Christina Bentz; KaLene Cawthon, Shelby Doyle, Carly Farrell, Heather Jones, Beth Loudin, Leann Miller, Emily Pelto, Rachael Webb, Bradford Ballenger, Tyler Collins, Tyler Grigg, Matthew Hunt, Dylan Manard, Joel Morrissett, Bennett Morrow, Cole Pates-Clift, Bryan Yanchulis and Will Zimmerman.

The Foxes are just a game away from advancing to that championship game, which will be held at the Battlefield District leader’s home field (Maury Field) on Saturday, Nov. 14. The Foxes will remain the Battlefield District’s number two seed if they win on Wednesday night in their regular season finale against Caroline at home (Hunter Field).

The King George JV Rappahanock Fall Baseball League team continues to have great success. The team completed their regular season by winning at Caroline by a score of 19-1.
Tyler Truslow delivered a run scoring double in the game’s first inning, which gave King George the lead for good. Truslow (one double, two singles), Dustin Phiilips (three singles), and Dylan Dombrowkas (three doubles) paced the King George hitting attack with three hits each. Tyler Magill (triple) and Marc Antosz (double) also provided extra base hits. The Foxes tallied 16 hits in the contest. Dombrowkas also pitched brilliantly, as he did not surrender a hit through his four innings of work from the mound. He struck out six batters. The team was helped with outstanding defensive play from shortstop Alex Jeter and right fielder Sidney Horton. The win allowed King George to finish the regular season with the league’s best record at 13 wins and one loss. They captured the No. 1 seed for the playoffs, which included a first round bye.
