    "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.

    A varsity field hockey showdown between Foxcroft, ranked third in the VISAA Division II, and fourth-ranked Fredericksburg Academy highlights an action-packed Tuesday tomorrow (Sept. 16) when five of Foxcroft's seven fall teams are in action at home. 

    The action begins at 4pm when Varsity Field Hockey and Varsity Tennis, also hosting FA, as well as the Delaney Athletic Conference Boys Cross-Country Race, begin. The girls' race follows at 4:45 while JV Volleyball tips off against St. Michael's School in Engelhard Gymnasium at 4:30 pm, with the Varsity, also against St. Michael's, following. Come cheer on our girls if you can!

    Olympic Field Hockey Star Visits Foxcroft
    9/8/2014
    What better way to prepare for your season-opening game than to spend some time with an Olympian? Foxcroft's field hockey players were clearly excited and inspired as Carrie Lingo, a member of the 2008 U.S. Women’s Olympic Field Hockey team, visited campus Sunday and Monday to give a clinic, talk with students, share in Morning Meeting, and help with the Varsity's final practice before opening their fall campaign against Middleburg Academy Tuesday.

    Lingo, who also played on two US World Cup teams and was named USA Field Hockey Female Athlete of the Year in 2009, spent three hours Sunday afternoon working with the varsity and JV field hockey teams. She also brought Jackie Kintzer, one of Team USA's current goaltenders, along to give Foxcroft's netminders some tips and a great workout.

    "It was a tremendous afternoon," said Athletic Director Michelle Woodruff, who arranged for the visit by Lingo, who lives in Rehobeth Beach, DE, and has focused on serving her sport as a member of the US federation and Olympic Selection Committee and holding camps and clinics since retiring. "It's so great for the girls to hear from someone other than their regular coaches and when it's someone with this level of experience and great personality . . . "
