The curse of James Monroe continues

On Friday evening, at Maury Stadium, in Fredericksburg, in spite of injuries to three quarterbacks, defending Division I, Region III champion James Monroe (2-0, 5-0) handed district nemesis King George its 11th consecutive loss since 2001. Call it a Yellow Jacket curse or just plain ole bad luck, James Monroe trailed the Foxes (1-1, 4-1) by six points with just 3:13 left in the game.

Foxes debut new stadium with win over Cougars

It was a night to remember! On Friday evening, in front of a standing room only crowd, the Foxes gave the fan faithful a sample of what they have waited for. They opened the Battlefield District regular season with a resounding 21-10 victory over the Courtland Cougars (1-3, 0-1). More importantly, the win was also the beginning of a new era in King George High School (KGHS) sports. With the long awaited debut of the new stadium, fans witnessed a once in a lifetime experience. 

After spending most of his athletic career on the courts and fields associated with KGHS, Fox varsity head coach Jeff Smith is overjoyed to give Fox fans a program capable of going beyond district post-season play.

Foxes volleyball preview

The direction for Fox volleyball is about to change. King George High School head volleyball coach Jill Wine is well aware of the need for a volleyball feeder system. 

Although the Foxes demonstrated signs of growth last season, the end result was a 6-12 season. While they produced three of the area’s most dominant players in the form of Jasmine Daniels, Katelyn O’Campo, and Lea Howard, the Foxes must sustain a core source of talent from within the county, if they have a hope of every breaking into the top of the volleyball food chain. 

“We always want to come into the season improving, and I believe we’ve improved,” Wine said. “We received a compliment from one the Spotsylvania athletic directors; he said, “King George volleyball actually looks like real volleyball.”

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.
