Swimmer of  the Week

2012 • July 2-6

The Sharks are off to a great start this season with a solid win over Chancellor last week. That win, in part, was due to the great performances of our next swimmers of the week.  

Our girls Swimmers of the Week is a sister act.  We’re honoring our swimmers family style, again, this week—congratulations to Skylar, Shea and Sydney Hennessee!   The older Hennessee girls, Skylar and Shea, have been on the team since 2008-- Skylar was six years old and Shea was only four at the time.  Sydney sat on deck, watching her older sisters swim for two years, before eagerly joining the team in 2010.  All three girls have been actively swimming year round with the Rappahannock Raiders—something that has greatly benefitted them as they all have made major contributions to the Sharks.   All three girls have fast freestyle times which have earned them the honor of being on the A-relay freestyle teams for their respective age groups.  For the 8 and under girls, Sydney is third off the blocks and sister Shea is the anchor on this undefeated freestyle relay team.  Big sis, Skylar, swims second on the 9-10 girls A-relay freestyle team, which is also undefeated!   Wow, such team work!  Individually, this past week, Skylar finished fourth (16.38), and Shea and Sydney finished first (18.20) and fourth (20.41), respectively, in 25 yard Freestyle.  In 25 Backstroke, Skylar (19.37) and Sydney (24.45) finished third; and in 25 Breaststroke, Shea finished second  (25.85) and Sydney (29.76) sixth. There’s a saying . . . “Third time is the charmer.”   Well, all three Hennessee girls are charmers!   Skylar, Shea, and Sydney we are proud of all three of you girls!   You add so much to our team.  Way to go!

Our Boys’ Swimmer of the Week honors goes to 13 year old Harlan Baggett.  Harlan has been swimming with the Sharks for six years.  He has been showing a lot of improvement this season despite a late start, due to his recovering from a bout with mononucleosis.   This past week against Chancellor, Harlan finished fifth in 50 yard freestyle (32.75); third in 50 yard butterfly (36.31), and fourth in 50 yard backstroke (41.25).  He has also been swimming on the A-relay freestyle and the 125-yard Graduated relay teams for the 13-14 boys.  Harlan has been working hard at practices and it shows in his performances at our meets.  Good job, Harlan!   We are proud of you!

Jeremy Jack comes to King George

 It’s confirmed! This fall, former Caroline High School Athletic Director Jeremy Jack will be coming to King George High School. The King George County School Board approved Jack for the position of social studies teacher. 

Last week, Jack resigned from the position of athletic director at Caroline High School. He replaced Gene Dickey as the athletic director, and served in the position for one year. After the resignation of Gene Boley from the position of Cavalier varsity head football coach, Jack was named the interim head coach. However, Jeremiah Ross was eventually named as the Cavaliers head coach.

Eden Estate Eels splash into the summer swim season

 

Life in the fast lane of competitive summer swimming is about to heat up. The Eden Estate Eels will feature an entire new staff of coaches this season, along with a 120-member swim team that will feature a huge core of young swimmers. 

King George High School alumni, and James Madison University sophomore, Luke Jones will replace longtime Eels head coach, and swimmer, Katie Taylor. Like Taylor, Jones grew up in the Eels swim program, as he developed into a standout swimmer at KGHS. “I’ve been with the team as a swimmer for 13 years, and I’ve coached here for the last two years,” Jones said. “It’s a nice transition from a coach’s assistant to the person in charge. I’m really excited to help everybody to be a better swimmer.”

Molly Roohi wins SPCA 5K Run women’s overall

 

Area four legged canines and felines have more than their share of friends. 

On Sunday morning at 7 a.m., the sight of 464 avid fitness enthusiasts running through the streets of downtown Fredericksburg was a vision to behold. The annual SPCA Rescue 5K Run featured 31 runners from King George alone. Proceeds from the race were donated to the Fredericksburg Regional SPCA No-Kill Facility.

KG Sheriff’s Department carries Olympic torch

 

It was a sight to behold, as the Virginia Law Enforcement Torch Run passed through the streets of King George. 

Last Tuesday, over 40 runners (law enforcement, United States Marines, King George County citizens) commemorated the first King George Special Olympics Torch Run by running 3.2 miles from the new King George Sheriff’s Office to the King George Middle School track & field complex. For onlookers it was a memorable experience to witness, photograph, and cheer as the convoy of runners passed their homes and businesses.

More than 2,000 law enforcement officers throughout Virginia were involved last week in the Law Enforcement Torch Run. Every year in the month of June, they carry the flame of hope across 1,900 miles to kick off the 2012 Summer Games, at the University of Richmond Robins Center, in Richmond.
