Freshman Drifter pitcher Nick Graves held Washington & Lee to zero runs for five complete innings on Tuesday. However, in the two subsequent innings, the Eagles rallied to defeat Colonial Beach, 7-1. “The W&L loss was one of the toughest losses we’ve ever had to swallow this season,” Drifter varsity head baseball coach Steve Swope said. “We had a good game plan going in, and came within a couple of outs of pulling it off. Now we have to check inside the chest cavity to push on and achieve our goals of reaching the post season.”
Later in the week the Drifters lost another district game to Northumberland, 7-5. The

The Foxes have the potential to do something special this season. Currently, the varsity Foxes baseball is atop the Battlefield District with a record of 3-0, 6-0. Last week King George added two more district wins to their record in the form of shutouts against Eastern View and Culpeper. Thus far this season, the Foxes pitching staff has only given up five runs.
Where there is smoke, the Foxes have proven by their work ethic, that there certainly is fire within every aspect of their approach to the game. “It’s a joy to come to practice to see them work hard,” Fox varsity baseball head coach, Thad Reviello said. “They are extremely competitive in practice. They understand what we want them to do; there is no secret to this.”
