More than just football

Who would have thought rural King George County would have the "Field of Dreams" for all area field hockey teams to become more competitive in the state tournament?

After watching Stafford play in the Northwest Regional quarterfinals on the new, state-of-the-art artificial-turf football field in King George, I am optimistic that a local team can bring home the state championship trophy! Our players can use and experience a surface similar to the mandated tournament fields in Virginia Beach, so the Beach schools do not have an unfair advantage.

Stafford County is fortunate to have such a forward-thinking neighbor. Thanks for sharing, King George!
