They opened the Battlefield District regular season with a resounding 21-10 victory over the Courtland Cougars (1-3, 0-1).

The direction for Fox volleyball is about to change. King George High School head volleyball coach Jill Wine is well aware of the need for a volleyball feeder system.
Although the Foxes demonstrated signs of growth last season, the end result was a 6-12 season. While they produced three of the area’s most dominant players in the form of Jasmine Daniels, Katelyn O’Campo, and Lea Howard, the Foxes must sustain a core source of talent from within the county, if they have a hope of every breaking into the top of the volleyball food chain.
“We always want to come into the season improving, and I believe we’ve improved,” Wine said. “We received a compliment from one the Spotsylvania athletic directors; he said, “King George volleyball actually looks like real volleyball.”
