Foxes begin quest for a new identity in 2011

 King George High School varsity head football coach Jeff Smith is a firm believer that hard work pays off, especially when it comes to the direction that his football team is headed in. When you consider that he will be without the services of Fox graduates Tevin Jones, Kelsey Monroe and DJ Lewis, his quest for winning a Battlefield District championship will be not be an easy task.

Another daunting complication is a field of seven equally tough district opponents who have the same interest in winning the coveted title. However, Smith has more than just few tricks

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
