Up and coming Drifter ball players were treated to a week of fun, games, trophies, camp T-shirts, evaluation cards, daily contests and solid fundamentals of America’s pastime.  Five different fields were used at spacious Monroe Park to keep four T-ball/Minor League teams and six Little League/Senior League teams

Drifters complete another amazing year

The pride of the “Black & Gold” is here to stay. From the start of the 2010-2011 sports season, the Drifters have competed with the best, while leaving no doubt that they are well equipped to compete in the Northern Neck District.

Rather than rebuild, Jeremy Jack and his staff of coaches reloaded the varsity football program with a group of prototype athletes willing to play iron-man football for four straight quarters. After a tough first year in the district that yielded four wins, the Drifters bounced back with a first round Region playoff berth that featured a 3-2, 6-5 record.
