Potomac Warriors 13U baseball soars to the next level

Their destiny is written in the fabric of America’s greatest pastime. Tom Clift, Potomac Warriors 13 (5-1) and under manager and King George resident had a long-term goal to prepare this team for the next level. Currently, the Warriors are on a warpath, taking on the toughest USSSA 13 and under competition in the tri-state region and beyond.
“We started out with the goal of making it to the high school level; however, our hope now is to have our players capable of playing college level baseball someday,” Clift said during a recent practice at Trinity Field in King George.
The Potomac Warriors 13 and under team is an extension of the Potomac Warriors 14 and under Maryland-based team.

King George Foxes shutout Colonial Beach

The King George varsity baseball program is definitely headed in the right direction. For the first time in years, the Foxes are showing signs of dominance in every aspect of the game. After defeating Washington & Lee and Colonial Beach, the Foxes are now 2-0. Results of the Eagles vs. Foxes game on Tuesday were not available due to press deadlines.
After King George Director of Human Resources William Wishard threw out first pitch to celebrate the inaugural debut of the Foxes new baseball field, the partisan Fox fans could only watch in awe. The Foxes made short work of the Drifters by delivering a 15 run shutout.
In the bottom of the first inning, the Foxes took a 6-0 lead that featured hits by Troy Thompson, Dylan Dombrowkas and Collin Blake. After picking up a run in the second inning, Theo Klopsis blew the game wide open in the third inning with the ballpark’s first ever three-run homerun.
The Foxes would score two more runs in the fourth inning. The Foxes’ offense resulted in 11 hits, while the Drifters finished with three hits. In four innings of shutout work, Fox senior Ethan Slemp produced seven strikeouts, one walk and gave up three hits. Damion Carroll completed the Foxes’ mound duties with three strikeouts to retired the side, and win the game.
