"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.|
|Lacrosse Opens Foxcroft’s Spring Sports Season Thursday|
What can the Foxcroft lacrosse team possibly do for an encore? How do you top a perfect 17-0 season that culminated in a Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA) state championship?
Well, this year’s team has the personnel to attempt a repeat -- and that's what they'll be striving to do.After two game cancellations due to flooded fields, the team will begin its quest for another state title Tuesday when it hosts Fredericksburg Academy in its season opener.
Varsity soccer opens Monday, March 30, with a home game against Fredericksburg Christian School and Softball's debut comes Tuesday, March 31 against Seton School in Manassas.
|Great Season Celebrated with Basketball Awards |
A season of growth and a season of winning were both celebrated Wednesday at Morning Meeting when the Winter Sports Awards were presented by the Athletic Association.
Junior Varsity Coach Jay Tuttle, praising his young team's progress, and Varsity coaches Patrick Finn and Fred McMane, noting the Varsity's dedication and achievement, distributed certificates to all participants and special honors to several players.
|Basketball Wins its First DAC Championship!|
Foxcroft School and basketball go way back. The treasured tradition of Fox/Hound began in 1914 with a basketball game. From the first interscholastic competition in 1917 through the 1930s, Foxcroft basketball was a power on the East Coast and rarely lost any games. Even the school song has a line about it, “Here’s to the horse and the basketball, of course. . .”
Foxcroft had never won an interscholastic conference championship, though, until Friday. Playing in a game moved up a day to avoid Saturday's storm, a quick, athletic and entertaining Foxcroft team corrected that situation by routing Randolph-Macon Academy, 48-24, to claim the Delaney Athletic Conference Division II Championship.
