Bushrod football camp, a hit with area youth

On Saturday, on the fields of King George High School, more than 150 kids, ages 6-13 gravitated to the Jermon Bushrod Visualize and Rise Football Camp. More than 50 volunteers made up of KGHS alumni, area coaches and educators taught aspiring football players the fundamentals of the game. Camp coordinator and Courtland High School varsity football coach George Major is hopeful that the camp motto and focus, visualize and rise, will become a recurring theme throughout the campers’ lives as they pursue their athletic goals.
“The purpose of this camp is to make kids understand that anybody can do anything they want to if they put their mind to it,” coach Major said.

Potomac Warriors 13U win AA State Tournament

Most recently, the Potomac Warriors 13U baseball team defeated the 13U Culpeper Cardinals 13-12 to win the AA State Baseball Tournament at the Virginia Sports Complex. Over the course of the tournament the Warriors won all five games, resulting in 57 runs scored, while giving up 23 runs. After splitting victories against the Mid County Cougars (8-7, win) and the Virginia Patriots (9-6, loss) during this weekend’s tournament at the Bowling Green Baseball Stadium in Bowling Green, the Warriors are boasting a record of 18-10-1.
During the championship game the Cardinals jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Undaunted by the Cardinal attack, the Warriors defense settled down in the second inning; nullifying the Cardinal offense to zero runs. In the bottom of the third inning the Warriors delivered 12 runs to take the lead and the momentum away from the Cardinals. However, in the top of the fifth inning, the Cardinals bounced by with two more runs.
Holding on to a precarious 12-11 lead, the Warriors scored their final run in the bottom of the fifth inning for a 13-11 lead. Not to be outdone, the Cardinals roared back with a run in the top of the sixth inning.

Beach hosts Northern Neck Strongman competition

Mixing brawn with the courage to stand among the elite strong men of the Northern Neck became the theme for the first annual Northern Neck Strongman Competition. Sponsored by Colonial Beach High School (CBHS) and the Virginia National Guard, led by Sergeant Greene, 16 athletes, from grades 8-12, pushed their physical abilities to the limit. The event took place at Colonial Beach High School, on the grounds of Monroe Park.
After the weigh-in, athletes tested their speed, endurance and strength during the following events: tire flip, sand bag carry, farmer’s toss and Humvee push. The main event included a four-man tug-o-war team competition. Strongman competitors were divided up into three weight classes: lightweight, middleweight and heavyweight.

BWSL Foxes up and running

Last weekend, the BWSL Foxes competed in the 2010 Virginia U15 DII State Tournament, sanctioned by the AAU, held at the Stuart C. Siegel Center at Virginia Commonwealth University.
The team is coached by David Crenshaw.  Coach Crenshaw volunteers his time, as do the two assistant coaches, Chris Brown and Anthony Howard.  The Foxes have been together for a short time, a little over a month and this was their first tournament.
The coaches agreed this was a great learning experience for the players as well as themselves.
“The teams that competed here were very competitive,” Coach Howard said. “Our team will take advantage of this experience to grow and will be able to go on to compete at this level.”
When asked what the team learned most from this experience, Coach Crenshaw replied: “We learned that we have what it takes physically and mentally to continue to compete.”
Their three-point game was impressive as well as their defense (blocking shots). The Foxes worked together to bring what they had to the court, even though they fell short of a top-finishing spot.  The team is already looking forward to the next tournament, Super Regionals on May 14 in Hampton, Va.  This opportunity would not be possible without the support of the player’s families and many sponsors such as King George House of Pizza, McDaniels and Fas Mart.  With support from their families and community, these young people will have the opportunity to continue to reach their goals.

Foxes sweep Drifters for the softball season

Fox varsity softball has never been better! Last Wednesday, The Drifters (4-3) varsity softball team ran into another Lady Fox (5-2, 9-2) nightmare last week. After a 20-0 loss on their home field, a 10-1 loss at King George earlier in the season, it’s safe to say that the Foxes simply outworked the Drifters in every aspect of the game.
Highlights of the game included a near perfect pitching performance by Taylor Brandts. Brandts stole the show with nine straight strikeouts, giving up one hit. The Foxes bats were lighting up the airwaves with 12 hits, including a two-run, inside-the-park homerun by Katelyn O’Campo.
As for Colonial Beach, Karley Graves pitched seven innings, earning three strikeouts for her efforts. Danielle Galloway and Brittni Devers each hit a double.
