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.”

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.
