Travis Cundiff voted Army Iron Man of the week

After rushing for 151 yards, scoring two touchdowns, and grabbing one interception against Surry High School last week, the U.S. Army Baltimore Recruiting Station announced Colonial Beach running back Travis Cundiff as the “Army Iron Man of the Week,” and the best two-way high school football player in the battalion’s northern Virginia recruiting territory. Cundiff is the sixth player this season to receive this prodigious honor.
The criterion for receiving the iron man award is tough. The player must demonstrate excellence on both ends of the gridiron — offense and defense — as well as strength in character. The Army Iron Man exemplifies the quality of Army strength in every aspect of his performance.

Drifters celebrate an end of an era

As the Colonial Beach sports programs prepare to enter the Northern Neck District, they can leave fulfilled with the knowledge that they left an indelible mark on the Tidewater conference — and technically, the entire state of Virginia. Most recently, the Drifters honored their athletes at the 2009 sports spring awards.
After starting the season late, due to winning the Group A State Basketball Championship, the Drifters varsity baseball team reached deep into the heart of the team to pull off a victory over Lancaster, with a no-hitter, thrown by multi-sport athlete TT Carey. While their season had their share of ups and downs, varsity head coach Steve Swope continued to urge his players to forge ahead. Along with Swope’s will to succeed and his players’ fortitude, they did the unthinkable by pounding King William 11-6 to win the Tidewater District Tournament Championship.
The Drifters finished the season with a 6-4 district record, and a 11-9 overall record. Over the past five years, the Drifters varsity baseball team has amassed a 99-26 record.
