    Kitty Palmer '72 Elected to Foxcroft School Sports Hall of Fame
    12/17/2015
    Three-sport standout in high school, college -- and as a coach -- will be inducted March 5

    Foxcroft’s Sports Hall of Fame is an exclusive club -- and it seems to be getting harder to join! In its third year of existence just one individual, Kitty Anthony Palmer ’72, was elected by the eight voters in November. That’s half as many as last year, when classmates Alison Firestone Robitaille ’95 and Jacey Edelman ’95 were inducted and five times fewer than 2014 when Miss Charlotte led an impressive inaugural class.

    3/3/2015
    Jacy Edelman and Alison Firestone Robitaille, who were both inducted into the Foxcroft School Sports Hall of Fame Saturday (Feb. 28), have a lot in common.

    They are both members of the Class of 1995. They both grew up near Middleburg and attended the Hill School before coming to Foxcroft. They are both mothers of young children with demanding careers.

    And, of course, they are both terrific athletes.

    About Foxcroft's Sports Hall of Fame
    The Foxcroft Sports Hall of Fame, scheduled to induct its first honorees during the School's Centennial Celebration in 2014, is an apt expression of the mission established nearly a century ago when the Latin phrase "mens sana in corpore sano" -- a healthy mind in a healthy body -- became the School motto. It will also make Foxcroft one of the few girls schools in the world to honor its sports stars with a hall of fame.

    Nominees for the Sports Hall of Fame must exemplify the highest standards of sportsmanship, ethical conduct and character. Candidates will be judged on their significant and/or long-term contributions to Foxcroft School athletics.
