The King George High School baseball team is the hottest ticket in town. In light of the Foxes offense, and the 90 plus mile an hour fastball sensation, Damion Carroll’s perfect game performance against Brooke Point (2-9) on Friday afternoon, it’s relatively safe to say that the Foxes are on a path to a district championship.
After sweeping the triple-A Commonwealth Division Black Hawks during Friday’s double-header, 10-0, 11-1, the heat is on for district contending teams such as Spotsylvania, and Caroline, if they hope to keep pace with the Foxes. When you consider that the Foxes pitching staff’s ERA is barely over a digit, and with the minor exception of the recent

Denise Flately will assist Pifer in the role of assistant coach.

From a tough group of underclassmen with junior varsity championship experience (two years) to an innate hunger to surpass last season’s 6-7-2 (overall), 5-7-2 (Battlefield District), the Foxes are confident that they can break into the perennial upper echelon district group (Courtland, Chancellor, Culpeper, James Monroe).
The Foxes are on the tip of iceberg of becoming a perennial postseason team, as they barely missed the playoffs by one game last year. In short, the Foxes have the right stuff on paper, now it’s time for them to prove to the rest of the district that are for real. “This season we are hoping to build upon the improvements we showed over a course of last season, and really over the past few seasons,” head coach

Prior to the Regional semi-final 55-41 lost against Grafton, which ended their season, the King George Foxes was nothing short of thrilling as they finished off the Warhill Lions in a challenging 74-69 win last Tuesday night in the Region I, Division 4, boys basketball Quarterfinals.
