W&L rallies to defeat CB Drifters

 

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

Foxes Quoc Duong triumphant on Senior Night

 

On Senior Night, senior second seed Fox tennis player Quoc Duong closed out the Foxes’ home court season with a blast. 

Duong went out winning both his singles and doubles matches against Caroline High School, capping a four-year career at King George High School. Duong defeated Tiquan Hudson, 10-5, and along with teammate Cole Galamore, defeated Josh Zeienich, and Rhett Fog, 10-5 in a doubles match. 

While Duong’s contributions to the KGHS boys tennis program will be missed, his academic and professional career will soar as he prepares to enter the U. S. Naval Academy this fall.

Where there is smoke, there is fire

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.”

On Tuesday, amid cool temperatures, the Foxes hosted Eastern View. Homeruns, solid defense, and outstanding pitching are the three attributes that can best sum up the Foxes’ fifth game of the season.

In the bottom of the first inning, Damion Carroll go the ball rolling for King George with a double over third base. Two batters, and an out later, Zak Kegley followed
