Hope springs eternal

Foxes JV baseball team crush Knights on first day of spring

The 2009 Foxes junior varsity baseball team is truly the face of the future. After starting the season with two wins and one heartbreaking loss, the future stars of the varsity team are quickly making their mark on the District junior varsity level. Their recent 11-1 win over Spotsylvania [0-3] is evidence that progress is being made on the feeder system level. Not only are the Foxes loaded with talent, but also they are playing in the true fashion of team unity and team spirit.
The expression, "good pitchingwill beat good hitting any day" applied to Friday’s game when sophomore Damian Carroll struck out six batters, walking three and gave up one run to lead his team to a short five and half inning win. The tall right-hander never wavered—even when he was backed into a corner, with runners in scoring position, he consistently found a way to retire the opposing side.
Courtesy of 10 hits by the following Fox players, the Foxes proved that they could explode in any given inning. The Knights used four pitchers in an attempt to stop the Foxes.
After the Knights took a 1-0 lead in the top of the third inning, Dove rallied the Foxes back to tie the game at 1-1 with a double into left field. Tyler Trustlow continued the scoring with a single that scored Carroll, giving the Foxes a 3-1 lead.
In the bottom of the fifth inning, the bottom fell out for Spotsylvania, as the Foxes lit up the scoreboard with eight runs. With two outs, and the bases loaded, Trustlow unloaded a double, scoring two runners. After loading the bases for the second time in the inning, the Foxes extended their lead to 7-1, as Dove delivered a ground rule double, scoring two runs. The final Fox runs were scored due to errors by the Knights short stop.
The results of Tuesday’s game versus Eastern View were unavailable due to press deadlines. The Foxes will host Colonial Beach on Wednesday, at 5:00 p.m.
2009 Fox JV roster:
Head Coach Ryan Christoff, Alex Jeter, Tyler Trustlow, Cody Dove, Dylan Dumbrowkas, Lex Estes, Troy Thompson, Matthew Hunt, Damian Carroll, Kyle King, Tyler Macgill, Joe Reed, Nick Ott, Jared Mckinnon, Trey Graham, David Hunt.
