Sensational season for Fox varsity softball

“Achieve” was the motto this year for the King George High School Lady Foxes varsity softball team, and “achieve” is what they did!  The talented group of players earned the right to play in the Region 1 Tournament this season for the first time since Head Coach Billie Jo Derrow took the helm four years ago, by defeating the Chancellor Chargers in the Battlefield District’s third place game on May 21, 1-0, in extra innings – twelve innings.
The Lady Foxes moved on to play top-ranked Powhatan in the regionals on May 25, succumbing to them, 3-1, in an exceptionally close game.  “We played a very good game against Powhatan,” said Coach Derrow.  “Both teams scored their runs in the first inning and nothing after that.”  Senior Heidi Emory made it to first base, then stole a base to reach second in the first inning. 

One out later, senior Toni Moles hit a triple to bring Emory in to score.  From that point on it was all defense.  “I am really proud of the girls for hanging right in there with them,” the coach said respectfully.  “We played hard.”
Improving their overall season record to 12-7-1, 9-5 in District play, from last year’s 8-12 record, KGHS had a great season.  “All of the team has played a vital part of our success this year, even the newest members of the team.  They all have contributed to our success this season either on the field or at the plate,” Coach Derrow declared.
KGHS sophomore Katelyn Mehl earned the Battlefield District Softball Pitcher of the Year honors this season.  She pitched over 243 strikeouts this year, overwhelmingly passing her season goal.  Mehl ended the regular season with an ERA of 0.57.  She also led her team’s regular season in batting with a .667 batting average, scoring 16 runs, hitting eight doubles and four triples.  Outfielder Heidi Emory joined Mehl on the First All-District Team.
First baseman Toni Moles earned Second All-District Team honors, finishing the regular season second to Mehl in batting with an average of .469, and leading the team in RBI’s and fielding.  Other Lady Foxes to make the Second All-District Team were junior third baseman Jessica Burress, sophomore second baseman Crystal Treat, and freshman outfielder Vici Treat.  Honorable Mention honors went to senior shortstop Amanda German and sophomore catcher Lauren Parker.
Congratulations on a stellar season, Lady Foxes!
