KG Lady Foxes defeat McDonough Rams in a nail biter

Results from the Lackey vs. King George championship game, and Chancellor vs. McDonough consolation game were not available due to press deadlines. In a low-scoring contest, Lackey defeated Chancellor 36-34 in the first game of the girls’ portion of the tournament.
The equally matched up game turned out to be a slugfest of scoring and defense from beginning to end.
In the first quarter, the Foxes struck first with a layup from Timeah Brooks. After a series of offensive miscues from both teams, Quandria Dyson scored a layup and dropped in two foul shots to give the Rams a 4-2 lead. Within 1 minute and 34 seconds, the Rams rediscovered their offense and posted a 8-3 run — courtesy of two short range jumpers by Ram center Tyler Smith.

King George boys’ varsity basketball 2009-10 preview

 

There is a spark in Fox basketball that will soon turn into a flame. Last season fans got a glimpse of the future of King George varsity boys’ basketball. Now that former head coach Jeff Smith has laid a foundation, new coach Tony Clark has arrived to cement a proud and honored tradition of competitive basketball.
Thus far, Clark’s team has taken on four of the toughest teams in the area —Lancaster, Hylton, Washington & Lee and the defending Virginia AA Division IV state champions, Courtland. With a dominating victory over Lancaster during a scrimmage to start the season off, and a wire-to-wire win (95-85) over cross-town archrival Washington & Lee, the Foxes are well on their way to success. The losses to Hylton (74-49) and Courtland (61-57) will only strengthen their ambitions as the season unfolds. In addition, both Lancaster and Hylton competed in the state championship last season, and have returned the core of their team.
