Foxes Amethyst Polk rules VHSL States

She saved her best for last. After qualifying in five events at the VHSL Group AA State Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Harrisonburg, enior King George High School track and field star Amethyst Polk enjoyed arguably the best performance of her athletic career.

KG Foxes boys’ JV soccer push Blue Devils to the limit

Although the Foxes junior varsity boys’ soccer team ended their season last Tuesday with a loss to unbeaten Culpeper 3-2, they remain a major player in the future of the varsity soccer program. After trailing 0-2 in the first half, the Foxes rallied back from goals scored by Tony Arvizu, and Jacob Perkins. However, the Blue Devils pulled a rabbit out of their hat in the first two minutes of overtime to celebrate the championship with a 3-2 victory. “At the start I was afraid that Culpeper would come in and stomp us in the mud, because they had the potential to do it,” King George head

Cyclones overwhelm Foxes in JV district baseball championship

It was bitter pill to swallow for the Foxes. After losing to Eastern View 10-6 for the Battlefield District Championship, the Foxes were left with empty hearts and the realization that they will have to face the Cyclones again next year — but next time most of them will be wearing varsity uniforms.

“It was great game,” Foxes junior varsity head coach Nick Simmons said. “Our boys came out and played their hearts out. It proved to fun to watch.”

Last season, when both teams met in the junior varsity, the Foxes narrowly defeated the Cylcones 2-1. However, this season, both

KG varsity baseball show resolve in the face of adversity

 

After a tough 8-1 loss to Eastern View (9-4) on Monday night, the Foxes’ hopes of advancing into post-season tournament will be determined by the fate of games featuring Caroline versus Culpeper, and Eastern View (10-8, 9-4) versus Courtland (10-3).

On Friday, the Foxes changed their fate from a team that had its back to wall, to a team of destiny. Last Friday, after seven innings, the host Foxes defeated Courtland 6-4 to stay alive in the race for a playoff berth in the

Perfect form, complete with an unwavering determination

The 2011 spring track and field Foxes girls team has a unique mixture of talent emanating from every corner of the spectrum. Senior Shaquoy Morris, like everyone on her team, has her primary sights set on a District crown; however, in order to accomplish this feat among eight Battlefield teams, she must hold down her end of the athletic bargain by consistently throwing in the mid 30-foot range in the shot put event.

Given the fact that the graduating senior and impending Virginia Tech freshman already qualified for All-Region, both in winter and spring track over the last two years, and most recently leaped the hurdle of a personal best throw of 34’5.5” to take first place in the
