Although the Foxes junior varsity boys’ soccer team ended their season last Tuesday with a loss to unbeaten Culpeper 3-2, they remain a major player in the future of the varsity soccer program. After trailing 0-2 in the first half, the Foxes rallied back from goals scored by Tony Arvizu, and Jacob Perkins. However, the Blue Devils pulled a rabbit out of their hat in the first two minutes of overtime to celebrate the championship with a 3-2 victory. “At the start I was afraid that Culpeper would come in and stomp us in the mud, because they had the potential to do it,” King George head

The 2011 spring track and field Foxes girls team has a unique mixture of talent emanating from every corner of the spectrum. Senior Shaquoy Morris, like everyone on her team, has her primary sights set on a District crown; however, in order to accomplish this feat among eight Battlefield teams, she must hold down her end of the athletic bargain by consistently throwing in the mid 30-foot range in the shot put event.
Given the fact that the graduating senior and impending Virginia Tech freshman already qualified for All-Region, both in winter and spring track over the last two years, and most recently leaped the hurdle of a personal best throw of 34’5.5” to take first place in the

Whether its volleyball, basketball or track, she lives and breathes for any opportunity to compete. Whether its her charming charismatic smile, or her colorful dreadlocks, King George High School senior Brittany Kersey has always had a flair for the dramatic. During her four years at KGHS she has impacted and, in most cases, dominated every sports she has competed in. In short, she has single handedly raised the bar on area high school high jump track and field athletics.
Although volleyball and basketball will forever be close to her heart, the alluring aspect of leaping over a
