KGMS Lady Foxes are back

The Foxes girls’ middle school basketball team is on a mission.  After an astonishing 2012 season that featured a record of 11-4, and second place standing in area middle school girls’ basketball, the Foxes are fixated on building a solid foundation.


New KGMS girls’ basketball coach Neil Lyburn is elated with the challenge of coaching girls basketball on a feeder system level. “Although coaching younger girls has been challenging, I’ve made considerable progress in getting through to them,” Lyburn said. “They are learning the proper way to play basketball; however, I have to slow down my coaching style, and break down the fundamentals so that they can understand. It has also been a learning experience for myself.”

The Foxes starting five include: Brittney Peyton (shooting guard), Madison Morgan (forward), Halia Ellis (forward), Kenya Henry (center), and Brianna Martin (point guard).

On Wednesday, the Foxes (4-2) hosted Locust Grove, and defeated the Mustangs with ease, 35-5. Henry led the Foxes with eight points, while teammates Morgan, and Peyton each added six points. Amber Spuchesi also contributed five points to the team’s final total. As for the Mustangs, Kayla Figgs and Autumn Green each scored two points.

King George County school superintendent Robert Benson and KGMS head football coach Chris Zylonis volunteered to officiate the game after the intended referees did not show up. Benson also celebrated his birthday last week.

Utilizing a fast paced style of offense, and a suffocating version of defense, the Foxes dominated the entire game. With Henry’s six foot two imposing presence in the center, the Foxes scored with ease, as the Mustangs struggled to keep up. At half time the Foxes led, 21-0.

With 1:06 left in the third quarter, the Mustangs managed to get on the scoreboard, courtesy of a Alyssa Lyon foul shot.

In the final quarter, the Mustangs attempted more shots from the field, adding four points to their total.

On the following day, the Foxes hosted and defeated Culpeper for the second time this season. During an away game on Monday, the Foxes defeated a scrappy Richmond Middle School team, 36-2, improving their record to 4-2.
