The long-standing cross-town rivalry between King George (1-1) and Colonial Beach (0-1) does not begin to tell the story of Friday night’s varsity football game. The 34-30 Fox victory over the Drifters may be the start of something the Foxes haven’t felt since the last time they won the Battlefield District title.
Ultimately, every school will experience a lull in its sports programs; however, the Foxes are long overdue for a winning season. After rallying back from a 22-7 third quarter deficit against their arch rival, Colonial Beach, Fox football at Hunter-Lomax field, aka the Foxes Den, has now taken on a life of its own.

Eden Estate Eels head coach Adam Taylor is lifted high as members of the Eels swim team celebrate their first swim finals championship in 10 years. The momentous occasion took place at the King George YMCA.
They saved their best for last. After a slow start in the early part of the Rappahannock Swim League (RSL) American Division Finals, the Eden Estate Eels rallied to win the first ever RSL finals meet at the King George YMCA.
The history-making event took place on Saturday, July 29, throughout the early morning and afternoon. With nearly 1,200 people covering every part of the YMCA facility, it is abundantly clear that the sport of swimming is stronger than ever.
The Eels capitalized on personal time improvements and the final’s three-division format to upset the field of six teams. The format allows 600 swimmers to compete on a scaled based on parity and entry times, where the slowest swimmer never swims against the fastest swimmer. Also, the format allows more swimmers to earn awards.
