|“Participating in athletics is essential to learning the art of never giving up.”— Stewart Chapman Herbert ’77 , teacher, parent, coach|
|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.|
| Five Players Named to All-State Lacrosse Team|
In a fitting climax to a remarkable season, five Varsity Lacrosse players were named to the VISAA All-State teams, Coach Parick Finn announced Wednesday.
Seniors Carter W., Caroline F., and Olivia Jane, and freshman Alex G. were selected to the First Team and sophomore Emma R. was named to the Second Team. Carter was also named to the First Team a year ago, while Caroline and O.J. were selected to the VISAA all-state field hockey team last fall.
Foxcroft had had very few all-state selections until last season but now has had 10 athletes selected in four sports since the spring of 2012.
