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.

Eagles & Drifters 2012 spring sports highlights

 

The highlights of the 2012 spring sports season gave fans an opportunity to cheer, scream, and take a moment of reverence.

The recent retirement of Washington & Lee varsity football head coach Malcolm Lewis was a complete shock to the sports community. His stature in the sports community went beyond legend; he is the definition of a sports icon.  

His record of 123 victories, and 58 losses included a Division II State Championship, and three Region-A titles. He brought out the best in the teams he coached, and the rivals he coached against.

Bushrod golf tournament a booming success

Jermon Bushrod has become than a football hero or sports icon in the King George and Fredericksburg area community. He represents a movement to enrich aspiring student athletes to achieve their ultimate academic and professional goals. The recent Jermon Bushrod Charity Golf Tournament, held at Cameron Hills Golf Course, optimizes the Bushrod theme, Visualize and Rize. 

Now in its second year, the tournament was a success; with 169 golfers competing, it is abundantly clear that he has the support of the community. More importantly, proceeds raised from the live auction, individual donations, and tournament registration will be given out in the form of scholarships to students in King George, Colonial Beach, Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, Caroline, Stafford, and Westmoreland County. The tournament proceeds brought in over $6,500.00.

The tournament winners consisted of two flights (morning, afternoon) of golfers: Morning - 1st Place, Team Community Bank of Tri-County, Patrick Pierce, Tony Farland, Laura McKinnon, Greg Cockerham; 2nd Place, Team Meadows Farms, Ron Meadows, Kate Meadows, Jay Meadows, Chester Guzek; 3rd Place, Team Trivett Bombers, Travis Henderson, Rich Fredenburgh, Bill Fulton, Patrick Voit; Afternoon - 1st Place, Team W&L Baseball, Mark Harris, Jason Izana, Donald Clark, Michael Clark; 2nd Place, Team Local Services, Tony Bushrod, Edgar Jones, Donald Newton, James Harvey; 3rd Place Team Guzzlers, Eric Halter, Larry Bartyczak, Mike Wehrle, Mark Hall.

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

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