Foxcroft School athletes earn All-DAC honors
Foxcroft School student-athletes garnered six spots on the 2012 All-Delaney Athletic Conference field hockey team. Foxcroft is also represented with one athlete selected on both the All-DAC volleyball and cross-country teams.
-Here is the full release from Foxcroft School:
Eight Foxcroft athletes from three sports have received All-Delaney Athletic Conference honors for their outstanding performance in fall competition.
Field hockey topped the list as five members of the state semifinal-bound Foxcroft team received first-team All-DAC honors and another player received second-team mention. The team is seeded No. 3 in Division II of the Virginia Independent School Athletic Association tournament.
Volleyball and cross country each had one athlete selected for all-DAC honors.
Senior forward Olivia Jane Johnson of Rectortown and senior midfielders Carter Ware and Caroline Fout, both of Middleburg, were named to the field hockey First Team along with juniors Lilly MacDonald of Bluemont and Alicia Holz, the team’s goaltender from Delaplane. Senior midfielder Rebecca Mann of Hamilton was named to the Second Team.
It marks the third sport in which Mann has received all-DAC honors. She was a First-Team selection last year in basketball and soccer. Fout also was a First-Team All-DAC selection in 2011 while Holz and MacDonald were Second-Team choices a year ago. MacDonald and Johnson also were First-Team selections in 2010.
Senior Melanie Monroe of McLean was named to the First Team All-DAC in volleyball and junior Amy Edgemond of Reston earned All-DAC honors by finishing fourth in the DAC championship meet Nov. 2. Edgemond, running competitively for the first time this season, never finished below fourth place in any of her six meets.
Among the field hockey athletes, Johnson was one of the top scorers in the DAC with five goals and three assists in seven games. MacDonald, who began the season on defense but was switched to forward last month, scored three goals and had one assist in seven games. Fout and Ware were forces at both ends of the field while Mann anchored the defense and Holz had a stunning 0.71 goals against average in seven conference games with 39 saves and five shutouts.
Monroe, a co-captain of the volleyball team and a three-year letter-winner, had a fine all-around season, demonstrating versatility both as an outside hitter and a back row player. She also was one of the best servers on the team and was especially effective in pressure situations.
