    Three Students Receive National Honors in Scholastic Art & Writing Award Contest

    Congratulations to senior Roxy C. and sophomores Shea H. and Emma N. on being 2019 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards National Medalists! All three girls received Silver Medals Wednesday when the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers announced the results of the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious scholarship and recognition program for creative teens in grades 7–12.

    More than 340,000 works in 29 categories — ranging from memoirs and critical essays to sculpture, editorial cartoons, and video game design — were submitted by students from every state in the U.S. this year.  Of those, only about 2,700 works become national medalists.

    Roxy was recognized in the Mixed Media art category for her piece "The Afghan Girl.” Emma’s “Boys on the Swing” was selected in the Photography class and Shea’s “Autumn Loaf” earned Poetry honors. Silver medals are awarded for 
    “works demonstrating high honors on the national level,” according to the Scholastic website.

  • On Sunday, March 3, Foxcroft's Riding Team captured the Championship ribbon at the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) Zone 3, Regional 3 Finals held at Hazelwild Farm in Fredericksburg, VA.

    IEA Zone Finals, Here We Come!

    Riding team rides to IEA Zone 3, Region 3 Championship — and advances one step closer to Nationals
     
    Senior captain Kayla L. won one class and took second in another, and no Foxcroft rider placed lower than fourth on March 3 when the Riding Team captured the Championship ribbon at the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) Zone 3, Regional 3 Finals held at Hazelwild Farm in Fredericksburg, VA. The victory — by just two points over rival Madeira School — was Foxcroft’s first IEA regional title ever and qualified the team for the Zone 3 Finals for the first time in five years.
     
    In addition, junior Elena B. and freshmen Gigi G. and Cecilia M. advanced to the Zone Championship as individual riders and will compete in four classes there. Elena, who flew back from the Winter Equestrian Festival to compete, won the Individual Varsity Open Over Fences and Gigi won the Junior Varsity Novice Flat. In the JV Novice Over Fences class, Gigi finished third, behind Cecilia, but will join her clssmate at Zones because the winner of the class cannot compete there.

    The Zone 3 Finals, scheduled for March 29-31 in Lynchburg, VA, will include riders from Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. The top finishers will advance to the U.S. National Finals, in Harrisburg, PA, on April 26-28. Foxcroft won Zones in 2014 when it made its only appearance as a team at Nationals.

  • The Foxes claimed the Cup for the first time in six years, winning Big Game 20-15!

    Foxes! Foxes! Foxes!

    Blue and white were definitely “in” at the Athletic/Student Center the weekend before break when Foxcroft’s oldest and most beloved tradition, Fox/Hound Basketball, was renewed with all the usual enthusiasm, pageantry, and intense competition. The Foxes not only defeated the Hounds, 20-15, in Big Game to claim the coveted Cup for the first time in six years, but they also won Little Game, 16-8, and Middle Game, 15-11, on Friday to set up a Fox sweep of all three games for the first time in . . . well, as far back as anyone could remember.

    “It's been at least 24 years,” said Matt Mohler, a longtime faculty member and diehard Fox fan. “I can’t remember it happening,” agreed Hound Backer Patty Boswell, who came to Foxcroft in 1993. No wonder Fox Captain Leah S. ’19 and Big Team Captain Bella S. ’20 sported such broad smiles on their faces as they tied the blue and white ribbons on the Cup!

  • Girls Enjoy Another STEM-ulating Day at Foxcroft

    Highland, Norwood take high school and middle school competitions
     
    The theme of last Saturday’s Expedition K2M: The STEM Summit was “Pandemics,” but judging from the energy and enthusiasm that pervaded the Athletic/Student Center at the end of the day, everyone felt just fine. Spending the day solving math, science, and logic problems with names like Poison Control and Cure Confusion, it seems, was like a shot in the arm for the 157 girls from 23 schools in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia who participated. Win or lose, everybody had fun!
