Foxes move closer to a State Championship

After defeating Southampton, 7-6 in the Region I semi-finals, on Thursday evening, the Foxes are one step closer to a State Championship.  

The victory guarantees King George a berth in the upcoming VHSL Group AA State Championship. Barring a weather postponement, the Foxes are scheduled to play Grafton High School on Friday, at 4:30 p.m. 

If the game is rained out, it will be played on the following day at noon, in the same location. Also, if the Foxes defeat Grafton, they will host the State Championship Quarterfinal game; however, if they lose, they will travel and play the winner of the Region II in the quarterfinal game.

After winning the Battlefield District Championship, the Foxes has raised the bar on the baseball program by going farther than any team before them; including the Battlefield Champion 1987 baseball team.

Foxes win Battlefield District Baseball Championship

 

They are the definition of a championship team. 

The 2009 spring sports baseball season that yielded five wins and 14 losses, seems like a distant memory. On Thursday, at the King George High School baseball stadium, the Foxes varsity baseball program took giant step into school history. 

Amid a loud, and raucous Eastern View dugout, and trailing 5-1 with only four innings to go, the Foxes (11-3, 19-3) did what they do best. After a gut check, the Foxes methodically climbed back into the game with clutch hitting to win the tournament championship that has escaped them for the last 25 years.

Lady Foxes track & field continues district dynasty

 

They now have a formidable mark in high school history. On Wednesday evening, on the grounds of Culpeper High School, the Lady Foxes brought home their third consecutive Battlefield District track & field championship. 

With four events to go, it became a battle of wills, as King George precariously held on to a 93-92 lead against James Monroe. As a team, the Foxes finished with 179 points, while James Monroe took second place with 141 points.

Throughout the meet, James Monroe threatened to overtake the defending champions, King George, by accumulating points in the field events. However, the Lady Foxes steadfastly held their ground by compiling points in the running events.

Carroll has scouts drooling!

With a lively fastball that breaks past home-plate in the mid-90s, King George High School’s ace pitcher Daimon Carroll has the kind of stuff that turns opposing hard bats into so much like wet noodles that whiff at ghosts of the horsehide spheres he zips by them or impotently sends them harmlessly into the waiting gloves of his Foxes’ teammates.

Indeed, Carroll currently has professional baseball scouts drooling over his talent and potential.  

And they have produced somewhat of a quandary for the 18-year-old:  Should he go to college where he’s been offered a full scholarship, or should he opt for the minors after the 2012 major league baseball draft that begins two days before his high school graduation?

“Right now, I don’t know,” he said.  “I’m going to enter the draft but I’m thinking about junior college...if I go on to college I’d like to go into criminal justice where I can maybe eventually work for the CIA or the FBI.  But I want to have the opportunity to play

Foxes girls’ soccer battle Chargers


Friday proved to be a tough night for the Foxes junior varsity and varsity girls’ soccer teams. During an away game, at Chancellor High School both teams fought valiantly before losing to the host Chargers.
The varsity’s 8-0 loss is not indicative of their season or their recent history against Chancellor. In fact, the last time they faced the Chargers, the game ended in a 1-1 tie. Prior to the game, on the Tuesday, the Foxes defeated James Monroe, 8-1, for the first time in seven years.
“Our overall progress is good, and the team is coming along every day,” Foxes head coach Dustin Piper said. “You see better touches on the ball, but unfortunately we couldn’t put anything together this evening.”
Thus far this season, the Foxes have scored 35 points,
