    "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.

    An Encouraging Start
    Varsity Basketball hoping to contend for division title

    After splitting its first two games of the season the Foxcroft basketball team is confident it can contend
    for the Delaney Athletic Conference Division II title.

    The team showed enough in its first two games to warrant that optimism.

    All-State Athletes Announced
    Four field hockey players and two tennis aces honored by Virginia coaches

    Four field hockey players and two from tennis have been selected from Foxcroft to the VISAA Division II All-State teams, it was announced Monday by Athletic Director Michelle Woodruff. They join junior Alex, who earned All-State honors at the VISAA Cross Country Championship Nov. 7.

    In field hockey, junior Pipsy and sophomores Allison and Lindsay Woods named to the First Team and junior Laney was a second-team choice. Although Foxcroft did not reach the title game, it had more All-State players than any other school, with four of the 19 selections.

    Annie and Marina, junior co-captains who played the top singles and doubles matches in the state quarterfinals, were named First Team All-State in tennis. Annie received the honor for the third year in a row while Marina was named for a second straight year.

    Foxcroft Athletes Shine in State Competition
    How do you compare against the best? That’s what every high school athlete wants to know and Foxcroft girls came away from the state tournaments very proud of their accomplishments.

    It wasn’t quite as intoxicating an experience as a year ago when field hockey reached the VISAA Division II final, tennis reached the Division II semifinals and Amy E. ’14 finished fourth in the state cross-country championships. But it was nevertheless a solid achievement that reinforces the notion that Foxcroft is a force to be reckoned with in the athletic arena.
