KGMS unveils school’s first volleyball team

The foundation is set, and mold for future Foxes volleyball stars will never be broken.

King George High School varsity basketball head coach Jill Wine is passionate about the game of volleyball. Rather than focus only on the development of the high school team during the off-season, she has stepped up to produce the Foxes’ first middle school volleyball team.

As their head coach, Wine is thrilled with the opportunity to introduce the world of volleyball to 18 eager young ladies, who have a genuine interest in impacting the KGHS junior and varsity volleyball programs some day.

“It is a wonderful opportunity to be able to offer middle school volleyball to the students in KG with the idea to grow the competitiveness of our program while at the same time instilling the love of the game,” Wine said.  “The administration has been enthusiastic and supportive by getting this new program off the ground within the first year it was proposed to the school board.  The staff and parents have been so supportive and willing to lend assistance to the coaches and the players are awesome kids!  Our coaching staff has been so blessed to have such a great group of girls to start this program.  It is a joy to work with them everyday!”
Wine will be assisted by Fox junior varsity assistant coach Steve Davis.

KGMS athletic director, Billie Jo Derrow is working diligently to find additional middle school teams to play. Schools and clubs in the surrounding area that feature volleyball programs include Stafford and Northern Neck schools, Spotsylvania, and the Fredericksburg Juniors Volleyball Club.

The Foxes has already experienced two matches against the Fredericksburg based travel team, FJVC Red U-14.

“The King George Foxes did an outstanding job against this team,” Wine said. “Although we didn’t win, we demonstrated that our girls are ready to learn. We have only been practicing since Nov. 11, including a five-day break for Thanksgiving. The girls showed great enthusiasm, and demonstrated the skills that they have been learning in the little bit of time we have practiced. I was so proud of their effort.”

The ultimate goal for the program is to impact the high school team with skilled volleyball players. “The earlier we can instill the principles of the game at this level, the more opportunities for the coaches to hone the technical skills of the more advanced players at the high school level,” Wine said.

Together with off-season participation in the King George-based travel program, The Virginia Flyers Volleyball Club, and the KGMS volleyball team, the Foxes high school teams will inherit a pool of talented players capable of winning a conference 22 championship in the not too distant future.
