Lady Foxes varsity softball packs a wallop

From the bottom of the order to the depth of their bench core, the 2010 King George High School softball team (2-0) is solid from the ground up. How good are they? Last week, within a span of two days, the Foxes crushed cross-town rivals Washington & Lee and Colonial Beach 15-0, 10-1, respectively. In fact, after defeating Lancaster 3-1 during a scrimmage, the Foxes are currently undefeated.
Thrilled about the possibilities of another successful season, Fox head coach Billie Jo Derrow said: “I am very excited about the season, and our overall chances to bring home a district title. The team has set their goals for this season, and how they need to go about accomplishing their goals. Each and every girl on our roster will bring something special to our team. I can’t wait to watch them play.”
With seven returning starters from last season, including two dominating pitchers in the form of junior Katelyn Mehl and freshman Taylor Brandts, the Foxes are unquestionably armed and extremely dangerous. While Mehl recorded a remarkable .045 ERA, including 230 strikeouts, Brandts posted a strong season at the junior varsity level.
Other players who will affect the Foxes’ destiny are junior Lauren Parker, senior Jessica Burress, Nicki Pettit, junior Nicole Straughan, sophomore Sarah Davis and senior Julie Catlett.
Team captains for the Foxes are Parker, Burress and Mehl.
Talented and true to form, the players to look out for include: freshman Taylor Balmez, sophomore Courtney Beck, sophomore Natilie McGregor, sophomore Katelyn O’Campo and junior Elizabeth King.
After finishing last season in third place with a record of 8-4, 13-8, the Foxes are eager to change the settings of the district food chain. In addition, for the first time in five seasons, the Foxes competed in the Regional playoffs.
“We are looking forward to playing each and every team to the best of our abilities,” Derrow said.
An interesting confrontation that will soon present itself is the Fox home game between defending district and tournament champion Eastern View and King George on March 31.
