From the moment of the opening whistle, the game between the Drifter boys’ varsity basketball team and visiting Rappahannock Raiders resembled a track meet. For four quarters, the Raiders never showed any signs of they would relinquish the lead or any part of the word “momentum.”
“We attack teams when have the opportunity; however, sometimes we’re a little fast and have to watch how we control the ball,” Raider boys’ varsity head coach Brody Jackson said.

The Drifters varsity girls’ basketball team opened their season with an impressive 41-24 victory over the Charles City Panthers.
At first glance, the Panthers are noticeably lacking in depth with only six players on the team; however, what the Panthers lacked in team size, they more than made up for it in determination. For four straight quarters the Panther were relentless, as they attempted to overwhelm the host Drifters with quickness and hustling skills.

In the past the Drifters matched up well against the Broncos, but costly mistakes could mean the difference of winning or losing.

After a six-game winning streak, the Drifters varsity football team fell from grace, as the Lancaster Red Devils rallied to defeat them in the final quarter 29-28.
The Red Devils (4-1, 8-1) were leading the Northern Neck Division until Essex beat them two weeks ago, and the Drifters (3-1, 6-3) assumed the top spot in the Northern Neck. For the playoffs, because King William defeated West Point 28-14, the Drifters are secured a post-season bid.

At the start of the season, many thought the Drifters were in a rebuilding phase. When you consider the litany of stars who have graduated in the past four years, and the compelling nature of their ability to remain a competitive entity in the Northern Neck, rival coaches and players continue to be mystified. As new Drifter stars taking their names into the spotlight, the single wing offense has shifted back to the familiar big-play offensive style that it was known for.
