KGHS Foxes field hockey season up and running

After an amazing 2012 season that featured a 10-7 overall, 9-7 Battlefield District record, the Foxes varsity field hockey team has returned on a mission to re-new the tradition of winning.

Along with former assistant and now new head coach, Debra Garcia, and returning captains Lucy Shippee, and Meghan Yanchulis the Foxes are on the right path. Other Foxes who will play a huge role in the varsity’s destiny are Jackie Collins, Shelby King, Liz Hill and Alexis Sheehan.

Top newcomers include Brittany Halsey, Cailey Doyle and Carly Lindstrom.

“I think we need to work as a unit/family, and work together to get things done,” Yanchulis said. “If we do that we can be unstoppable.”

During a home game on Monday, the Foxes defeated Eastern View, 2-1 in overtime, and later in the week at Liberty, Yanchulis led the team with four goals.

Two of the goals came off of penalty corners, assisted by King. Josie Altman also had an assist for the Foxes. “The overtime win against Eastern View was huge,” Garcia said. “It was the first opening game on our field, and they knew how close last season’s game against the Cyclones was. While I don’t think they played their best in that game, they did really well shutting down some of Eastern View’s players—and holding on to the end.”

Currently, the Foxes are making the necessary adjustments with a number of new players. “We’ve lost eight seniors to graduation, and we’re moving players into new positions—but most of all, they are learning how to play with each other,” Garcia said.

Garcia is relying on the fact that her team is cautiously flying under the radar, while other teams continue to wonder if the Foxes are really for real. “The one good thing about King George is that a lot of people don’t know us,” Garcia said. “They know we lost players from 2012, but not necessarily who we have returning.”

Tuesday’s Fauquier game results were not available due to press deadlines. “The Fauquier game is very important because it is a conference game, and we have to be really focused on what we do well, and remember to do it the whole time. Important factors that will play a role in the outcome are playing as a team, positioning, and communication.”

Although last year’s success is a solid confidence builder, the Foxes are relying on their present and future field accomplishments.

With perennial rival, and last year’s state champion, Chancellor on their schedule, the Foxes are eager to surpass last year’s first round, post-season district and regional losses. Stay tuned!

KGHS JV field hockey
Fox 2008 alumni, Jessica Clemons has taken the helm this year, as the Foxes junior varsity head coach.  Clemons has the challenging task of grooming young field athletes into competitive future varsity players. “It’s great to be back, and in the program again,” Clemons said. “I only wish the program was this good during my playing days at King George. I think we are going to have a great season. Along with some new players, who have the skills to play the game, we have a fresh start on a brand new season.”

Junior varsity goal keepers for the season will be Morgan Carey, and Kyleigh Jenkins. Jenkins will also represent the team as a tri-captain with Kendell Webb and Lindsey Carabin.  For scoring, the Foxes will rely on mid-fielders Kendell Webb, Kylie Webb, Carabin, and Kylee Dawson.

Most recently, the Foxes JV split their preseason with a tie, and victory. Although they came up short (3-0) against the Cyclones, Clemons is confident that her team will develop into a winning program long before the season ends.
