Foxes girls qualify for Cross Country Championship

Last Wednesday, it was a Fox celebration at Loriella Park, in Fredericksburg. After posting a fourth place finish at the Region I Cross Country Championship, junior Haley Armentrout will lead the Foxes girls’ cross-country team to the State Cross Country AA Championship, at Great Meadow State Course, in The Plains, on Nov. 12. Her goal is to make the elite top 20, and all-state honors.

While Lafayette senior Heidi Peterson took home the individual women’s honors with  a time of 20:11.8, Battlefield District Champion Armentrout posted a time of 20:28. Out of 21 Region I high schools, the Lady Foxes placed third. Grafton, and Jamestown placed first and second respectively, while the following schools

The torrential morning rain last Friday that turned Thomas Lomax Hunter Field into a quagmire and marred King George High School’s planned homecoming festivities put the Foxes in a foul mood and they were ready to take it out on visiting Chancellor in the Monday rescheduled joust. Unfortunately their guests, led by one of Virginia’s top 20 high school quarterbacks, was able to nip their hosts as the Chargers edged King George in a 13-12 hard-fought defensive battle.

Leading the way for the Foxes on both sides of the ball was De’shon Brown. The 5-10 junior was a dynamo in the defensive backfield and amassed more than 80 yards of offense as the main offensive weapon when staring as the King George running back.  
The defensive line and backers also shined brightly, anchored by stalwarts Blake Sparks, Josh Jenkins, Matt Myers, Shawn Hughes,

The Foxes junior varsity football team is proof positive that the junior varsity program can have a huge impact on the varsity level. Last Wednesday, at Hunter Field, the Foxes (2-1) used their big play style of offense to pummel the visiting Spotsylvania Knights, 49-7.

From his quarterback position, De’Quan Whiting lit up the scoreboard with thrown

KGHS Foxes cross country teams are up and running

When it comes to the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the Foxes cross country team of 67 runners, Cathy Binder has good reason to be optimistic.

“This year our goal is to feature two Battlefield District champions, Haley Armentrout, and Tyler Lumpkin,” the King George High School head coach said.
Given the fact that Lumpkin is a seasoned distance runner, compliments of both cross country and track and field, and Armentrout’s 2010 performance featured a
