A renewed KG soccer focus realized at Elite Soccer Camp

King George High School soccer 

Mark Perry, King George High School junior varsity soccer head coach, and social studies teacher, has a new perspective on coaching and taking the Foxes to the next level. From July 5-10, Perry and 17 soccer players from King George attended the Elite Sports Academy Camp, at Sweet Briar College, in Amherst, Va. The camp consisted of two-U 14 teams and two-U 12 teams.
King George had the largest contingent of players at the camp, with other high schools featuring two to three players. Campers endured steamy temperatures that soared up into the nineties, while taking advantage of a rare opportunity to learn from one of the most highly acclaimed soccer coaches in the country, in the form of Virginia Tech men’s soccer head coach, Oliver Weiss.  Weiss has coached the Hokies since 2002, compiling a record of 68-39-16.

KG Foxes JV baseball win Battlefield District championship

It was a dream fulfilled for the King George High School junior varsity baseball team. Last Thursday, at Ross Memorial Stadium at Spotsylvania High School, the Foxes narrowly defeated East View 2-1 to win the Battlefield District junior varsity baseball championship.
After losing to Courtland in last year’s championship, the Foxes finished the season with a nail-biter of an ending.
“We gave them the same goal that we gave them last season,” Fox junior varsity baseball head coach Nick Simmons said. “It wasn’t about coming out and winning every game or going undefeated, but to give ourselves a shot at making it into the championship again. Once we made sure that we were in, we gave ourselves a new goal, which was to win it.”

KG JV Lady Foxes are perfect Battlefield District Champions

The King George JV Lady Foxes are the Battlefield Champions for the second year in a row.  To make it even more impressive, they are undefeated.  They completed the season with 16 wins and no losses.
King George traveled to Spotsylvania to take on the Lady Knights for the third time this season.  Seeded Number 1, the Foxes were the home team for the District Championship game.  To win the title, the Foxes would have to win a third time against a strong Spotsylvania team.
The Knights jumped out to a one-run lead in the first inning as King George allowed one run on three errors.  The Foxes failed to score in the bottom of the first.  Spotsy was three up, three down in the second.  King George had two runners reach base in their half but couldn’t score.
