KG Foxes dispose of Black Hawks in doubleheader

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

Lady Foxes soccer begin 2012 season with a blast

What a difference a year makes! After barely missing the Battlefield District Tournament by a late season loss to Eastern View, the Foxes varsity girls’ soccer team is determined to challenge the best teams in the area for the top spot. “We are well aware of the challenges we face against Chancellor, Courtland and James Monroe,” Foxes head coach Dustin Pifer said. “We feel that this is our year to get over the hump, and into competition with these schools that have a long standing tradition of success in girls’ soccer.”

With the loss of only two seniors to graduation, the Foxes could be the surprise team of the district. With a core group of 11 veterans who harmoniously work together, the sky is the limit.

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

Foxes soccer season takes off

They Foxes are back! The Foxes boys’ varsity team has the proven potential to shake up the Battlefield District this season. They have all the essential ingredients to form a winning season. 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

Foxes show heart in playoffs against Warhill

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.  Both teams working to stay alive in post-season play made for an exciting home finale.

The Foxes (7-7 Battlefield District, 13-15 overall) pulled off the win using patience on offense and sound defensive strategies; KGHS was ranked third in Team Defense of the AA area schools.  Three Foxes scored in double digits: recently named to the First-team

L.J. Baylor: a testament of courage under fire

He embodies the mantra, “courage under fire.” Foxes senior, forward/shooting guard, L.J. Baylor’s quest for post-season play has led him to the first round of the Region I, Division 4 playoffs, where the Foxes will host Smithfield. Due to press deadlines, results of the game were not available.

Baylor came into his own during the 2011 VHSL Group AA, Division 4 state
