Fox JV field hockey goalie has found her niche

King George High School freshman junior varsity goalie Alise Crockett is a symbol of what a true athlete should be.
In the midst of overcoming a debilitating birth defect known as Madelung’s deformity, Crockett has continued her pursuit of happiness by excelling in the sport of field hockey. Last season was the first time she attempted to play organized sports.
Although she is prevented from playing field positions due to her arm limitations, she fits naturally in the position of goalie.
“My coaches suggested trying out for the position of goalie, and I never thought of trying out for that position at all,” Crockett said. “After I tried it, I was told that I was a natural due to my instincts in stopping the ball.”
Fox field hockey varsity head coach D. Blair believes Crockett is taking the right approach to one day becoming a starting goalie for the varsity.

George Estes to head KGMS Foxes

Pacing the sidelines this season as head coach for the King George Middle School Foxes will be a new, yet familiar face.  
George Estes, longtime King George resident, local home-builder, and an active member in the community for many years, has taken the reigns of the middle school program following the departure of Alex Fisher earlier his year.

On paper, the Foxes appear to be loaded with talent, but now that the season has already begun, only the best teams will rise to the top.

Losing one senior, Lonnie Southall, to graduation and inheriting a senior heavy team, fortified with two-time, Battlefield District champion and number one seed Hannah Pierce, King George could be the team to beat this season. Provided they play up to their skill level and taking into consideration that the rest of the Battlefield has lost between two to three starting players, the Foxes could arguably control their destiny.

A new era begins

KG native Jeff Smith named Fox varsity head football coach

King George County native Jeff Smith has been hired as the new King George High School Head Football Coach for the upcoming season, following the resignation of former Coach John Bryant after his one year stint with the Foxes.  On June 10, the King George County School Board approved the hiring of Smith, who will be the seventh head coach for the KGHS football program since Roger Pierce headed up the Foxes in 1995.
 
A 1989 KGHS graduate, Smith has been the Truancy Coordinator for King George County Schools for four years, following his nine year service as a Juvenile Probation Officer for King George County 15 District Court Unit.

Coach Smith brings with him an impressive resume loaded with coaching experience.  For thirteen consecutive years he has served as an assistant football coach at KGHS, working with special teams, quarterbacks, wide receivers, defensive and tight ends.  Smith recently resigned as the Foxes varsity basketball head coach after three years, to take the helm of the football program.  He also has served as head baseball coach in the early 90’s.

Sensational season for Fox varsity softball

“Achieve” was the motto this year for the King George High School Lady Foxes varsity softball team, and “achieve” is what they did!  The talented group of players earned the right to play in the Region 1 Tournament this season for the first time since Head Coach Billie Jo Derrow took the helm four years ago, by defeating the Chancellor Chargers in the Battlefield District’s third place game on May 21, 1-0, in extra innings – twelve innings.
The Lady Foxes moved on to play top-ranked Powhatan in the regionals on May 25, succumbing to them, 3-1, in an exceptionally close game.  “We played a very good game against Powhatan,” said Coach Derrow.  “Both teams scored their runs in the first inning and nothing after that.”  Senior Heidi Emory made it to first base, then stole a base to reach second in the first inning.
