Timestamps of Shark and Eel RSL history

With arguably the best feeder swim system in the entire area, King George High School has always based their success on the Dahlgren Sharks and Eden Estate Eels that swim competitively out of the Rappahannock Swim League (RSL). The long history associated with both teams has made area swimming both exciting and fulfilling for the King George community. While the Sharks are celebrating their 45th anniversary, the Eels are equally as excited about their 29th year in the RSL.
During the summer, both teams no longer compete against each other, because they swim in different divisions. While the Sharks swim in the Patriot Division, the Eels compete in the American Division.

Northern Neck Rivermen, bigger and stronger than ever

To the delight of area fans, the Northern Neck Rivermen are back for another exciting season of semi-pro football. After their debut 2009 season in the Regional American Football League, the “Green & Black” have taken a step up to the Mason Dixon Football League where they will continue their ongoing rivalry with the Fredericskburg Falcons. With an offensive line averaging 300 pounds and a quarterback in the form of Gage Ford to lead them to a possible league championship, morale is high within the ranks of the Rivermen.

Eels start swim season

Well over 2,000 swimmers from 23 swim clubs representing the Rappahannock Swim league took part in opening day exhibition meets last Wednesday in the Fredericksburg metropolitan area.
While the meets will serve as a litmus test for each respective team’s ability to prepare for the regular summer swim season, the Eden Estate Eels enjoyed a fun-filled competitive day, while producing standout individual triple win performances — and a number of first place finishes.
During the meet at Regency Park, Eel co-head coach Curt Albert recorded triple wins in the 50-yard butterfly, 50-yard backstroke and the 100-yard IM. Albert’s 14-year-old teammate Scott Loudin also had a big day in the water, with victories in the 25-yard freestyle, 25-yard butterfly and the 25-yard backstroke.
