Fox JV football finishes an extraordinary season


Saturday at 10 a.m.:  The King George High School Junior Varsity Football team hopes to be busy playing football at that time this week in a rematch of the Foxes only District loss against undefeated James Monroe (8-0, 6-0 in Battlefield District) this past week, 8-26. The Foxes are just a game away from advancing to that championship game, which will be held at the Battlefield District leader’s home field (Maury Field) on Saturday, Nov. 14.   The Foxes will remain the Battlefield District’s number two seed if they win on Wednesday night in their regular season finale against Caroline at home (Hunter Field).

KG JV baseball program continues to earn opponents respect

 

The King George JV Rappahanock Fall Baseball League team continues to have great success. The team completed their regular season by winning at Caroline by a score of 19-1.

Tyler Truslow delivered a run scoring double in the game’s first inning, which gave King George the lead for good. Truslow (one double, two singles), Dustin Phiilips (three singles), and Dylan Dombrowkas (three doubles) paced the King George hitting attack with three hits each. Tyler Magill (triple) and Marc Antosz (double) also provided extra base hits. The Foxes tallied 16 hits in the contest. Dombrowkas also pitched brilliantly, as he did not surrender a hit through his four innings of work from the mound. He struck out six batters. The team was helped with outstanding defensive play from shortstop Alex Jeter and right fielder Sidney Horton. The win allowed King George to finish the regular season with the league’s best record at 13 wins and one loss. They captured the No. 1 seed for the playoffs, which included a first round bye.

Fox JV field hockey goalie has found her niche

King George High School freshman junior varsity goalie Alise Crockett is a symbol of what a true athlete should be.
In the midst of overcoming a debilitating birth defect known as Madelung’s deformity, Crockett has continued her pursuit of happiness by excelling in the sport of field hockey. Last season was the first time she attempted to play organized sports.
Although she is prevented from playing field positions due to her arm limitations, she fits naturally in the position of goalie.
“My coaches suggested trying out for the position of goalie, and I never thought of trying out for that position at all,” Crockett said. “After I tried it, I was told that I was a natural due to my instincts in stopping the ball.”
Fox field hockey varsity head coach D. Blair believes Crockett is taking the right approach to one day becoming a starting goalie for the varsity.

George Estes to head KGMS Foxes

Pacing the sidelines this season as head coach for the King George Middle School Foxes will be a new, yet familiar face.  
George Estes, longtime King George resident, local home-builder, and an active member in the community for many years, has taken the reigns of the middle school program following the departure of Alex Fisher earlier his year.

On paper, the Foxes appear to be loaded with talent, but now that the season has already begun, only the best teams will rise to the top.

Losing one senior, Lonnie Southall, to graduation and inheriting a senior heavy team, fortified with two-time, Battlefield District champion and number one seed Hannah Pierce, King George could be the team to beat this season. Provided they play up to their skill level and taking into consideration that the rest of the Battlefield has lost between two to three starting players, the Foxes could arguably control their destiny.
