"Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts – these are the enduring qualities that our girls develop through sports." -- Michelle Woodruff, Athletic Director
|Foxcroft's motto -- Mens sana in corpore sano -- translates to “a healthy mind in a healthy body,” and is a central aspect of life on campus. The School is dedicated to the idea that exercise is critical in a girls’ development, and so physical activity is a part of the curriculum. Each student is required to participate in a structured physical activity throughout the year. In addition to developing physical activity as a lifelong habit, we believe participation in sports teaches the core values of sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, and commitment.|
|Varsity Basketball Wins Three of Four Games in a Marathon Week of Basketball|
Foxcroft’s Varsity Basketball Team survived a marathon week of hoops action and emerged as the team to beat for the Delaney Athletic Conference Division II title.
The girls played four games in five days during the week of Jan. 11-17 and won three of them, including two over Delaney Athletic Conference foes. The conference victories put the team in first place in the DAC’s Division II with a 3-0 record.
|Think Pink Tournament Raises More than $3,000 -- Along with Two Champions|
The sixth annual Think Pink Tournament, held at Foxcroft School on Saturday, January 10, provided a red-letter day for basketball aficionados -- and a bright green day for the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation.
Twenty-one games were played -- three going on at the same time -- over six and a half hours with teams participating on a varsity and middle school level and one junior varsity exhibition game thrown in for good measure. There was more than enough spirited hoops action for all -- and admission was free.
Meanwhile, thanks to the good work of Foxcroft's Athletic Association, more than $3,000 was raised to benefit the CBBCF, which supports breast cancer treatment, support, education and research in Loudoun and surrounding counties.
|Varsity Basketball Warms Up for Think Pink Tourney with a Win|
The Varsity Basketball Team opened 2015 athletic action in fine style Thursday with a 50-27 victory over Wakefield Country Day School in Huntly.
Sadly, the win does not count in the Delaney Athletic Conference Division II standings because WCDS -- which reached the VISAA Division III state tournament with a 16-5 record two years ago -- has had so much trouble fielding a team that the school decided to "undeclare" its status in the DAC before the season began. By undeclaring its status, WCDS will still play teams in the DAC Division II but none of the games will count in the standings.
Junior guard Alex G. led Foxcroft with 24 points -- the most scored in a single game by a Foxcroft player since the school joined the DAC in 2008. Point guard Pipsy S. '16 also played a key part with a fine all-around game that included 10 points, seven assists, five steals and four rebounds. Forward Kat F. '16 chipped in with eight points and six rebounds while only playing about half the game.
