KG Foxes demolish Spotsylvania Knights

A few words of advice and caution to King George High School’s football opponents: Try to avoid meeting the Foxes after they have suffered a disappointment as they can be a bit rabid.

Spotsylvania High’s Knights unfortunately served as a clear example of what can happen when the Foxes are mad. The result last Friday night was a 59-0 drubbing, courtesy of Foxes’ Corey Henderson, Alon Clipper, Jacob Baker, Deshon Brown, Jordi Estes, Xavier James, David Hutt, and Austin Fisk.

The curse of James Monroe continues

On Friday evening, at Maury Stadium, in Fredericksburg, in spite of injuries to three quarterbacks, defending Division I, Region III champion James Monroe (2-0, 5-0) handed district nemesis King George its 11th consecutive loss since 2001. Call it a Yellow Jacket curse or just plain ole bad luck, James Monroe trailed the Foxes (1-1, 4-1) by six points with just 3:13 left in the game.

Foxes debut new stadium with win over Cougars

It was a night to remember! On Friday evening, in front of a standing room only crowd, the Foxes gave the fan faithful a sample of what they have waited for. They opened the Battlefield District regular season with a resounding 21-10 victory over the Courtland Cougars (1-3, 0-1). More importantly, the win was also the beginning of a new era in King George High School (KGHS) sports. With the long awaited debut of the new stadium, fans witnessed a once in a lifetime experience. 

After spending most of his athletic career on the courts and fields associated with KGHS, Fox varsity head coach Jeff Smith is overjoyed to give Fox fans a program capable of going beyond district post-season play.

Foxes volleyball preview

The direction for Fox volleyball is about to change. King George High School head volleyball coach Jill Wine is well aware of the need for a volleyball feeder system. 

Although the Foxes demonstrated signs of growth last season, the end result was a 6-12 season. While they produced three of the area’s most dominant players in the form of Jasmine Daniels, Katelyn O’Campo, and Lea Howard, the Foxes must sustain a core source of talent from within the county, if they have a hope of every breaking into the top of the volleyball food chain. 

“We always want to come into the season improving, and I believe we’ve improved,” Wine said. “We received a compliment from one the Spotsylvania athletic directors; he said, “King George volleyball actually looks like real volleyball.”
