    "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.

    Foxcroft’s Fall Sports Teams Take Dead Aim at DAC titles
    10/27/2014
    It has been a strong fall season for Foxcroft School’s athletic teams and all are in solid position to battle for Delaney Athletic Conference titles beginning Tuesday.
    Field hockey, volleyball and tennis will play in the DAC semifinals on Tuesday while the cross country team competes in the DAC Championships on Thursday at Randolph-Macon Academy in Front Royal.


    Varsity Field Hockey Team Peaks At Right Time
    10/18/2014
    Foxcroft's varsity field hockey team, runners-up in the VISAA Division II state tournament for the past two seasons, has struggled a bit this year to find an identity following the loss of three all-state players from last season. Through October 15, the squad had a 5-3 record, with all three losses coming against Delaney Athletic Conference rivals, and a ranking perilously close to the cut-off for being invited to the state tournament.

    With the graduation of goaltender Alicia Holz and midfielder Lilly MacDonald, as well as defensive starter Campbell Hartley, and the decision by 2013 leading scorer Alex G. to switch to cross country, Coach Michelle Woodruff has had the daunting task of filling some big holes. As the regular season winds down, she seems to have found the right formula. The team, led by senior co-captains Hannah A., Meredith D., Isabel M., and Madeline M., put on terrific performances last weekend, showing great hustle, good passing skills, resilience, and spirit against two very strong opponents.
