  • Soccer’s Georgia R. ’22 is Named Athlete of the Week

    Freshman Georgia R., who scored a game-tying goal with only ten seconds remaining in regulation against Quantico on Thursday, April 4, and whose constant vocal encouragement to her teammates played a big part in the outcome of the game, has been named Athlete of the Week for the period of March 31-April 6.

    Georgia, who plays soccer year-round, also scored Foxcroft’s only goal in a 3-1 loss to Fresta Valley on Tuesday, April 2.

    On Thursday, Foxcroft was trailing, 2-1, with time running out when senior Lily F. sent a pass to Georgia through Quantico’s defensive line. Georgia broke free and put the ball into the net with just 10 seconds remaining.

    Prior to her game-tying goal, Georgia worked to motivate her team with her own determined play and with shouts encouragement. “We will not lose this game!" she yelled.

    “She was a team leader and continued to inspire the team to the last second,” Coach JJ Kern said.
