The spirit of the Tri 4 Wesley YMCA youth triathlon lives on!

The generosity of area businesses such as Dr. Cottrell, NSWC Credit Union, Boy Scout Troop 191, Sisson Excavation and a host of others, the Tri 4 Wesley Triathlon became a huge success. With 78 participants, and a litany of community volunteers helping to monitor the field of aspiring triathletes, the event is currently in the stages of being planned for next year. Kids from ages 3-16 enjoyed the thrill of competition, while raising awareness to lead healthy and productive lives.

Rapp. Fall Baseball opening day results

The Rappahannock Fall Baseball League season kicked off on Saturday, Aug. 30. The King George varsity and junior varsity teams were both crowned RFBL Champions last year, and they are looking to defend their titles.  The King George varsity team hosted Northumberland on Saturday, and walked away with a split in the double-header.  Northumberland won the first game, 7-4, but King George rallied and won the second game 6-1.

King George took the lead in the 1st inning of game 1, as lead off batter Matthew Hunt made his way to second base on several defensive errors. King George’s next batter Tyler Truslow singled into center field, scoring Hunt, and getting himself to third base on a throwing error.  Zak Kegley followed with a ground out to the shortstop which allowed Truslow to score.

The sport of baseball is more than just a game to Jeff Truslow - it is his life’s passion. Jeff Truslow, King George Rappahannock Fall Baseball League (RFBL) varsity head coach, may have his finger on something unique. Given that King George High School has produced two back-to-back winning seasons from the very same players that he has coached for the past three RFBL seasons, the impact of playing year-round baseball has the potential of yielding a potential run at a Battlefield District Championship.

After all, King George RFBL teams have produced three championships in the past two seasons. Last year Truslow’s varsity

Riding on the wings of discovery with Adam Grieco

King George resident Adam Grieco has fulfilled his life’s dream of seeing America’s heartland. Using only his cell phone for communication and navigational purposes, the 40-year-old endurance athlete traveled more than 7,000 miles on a cross-country ultra-marathon trip.

The most perplexing question that continues to haunt the minds of the many curious townsfolk he encountered on his quest for enlightenment, is why did he do it?

“I’ve been asked that question about a thousand times,” Grieco said. “Honestly, the reason I did it is because I simply really wanted to see the country. I felt if I didn’t do it, I would be a failure in life.”

From the coast to coast — King George to Pueblo, Colo. and back— stopping in towns like Bend, Ore., and many places in
