Foxcroft School qualified two athletic teams for state tournament play in the same season for the first time in school history this fall. Foxcroft’s field hockey and tennis team both enjoyed banner seasons.
Foxcroft won a pair of Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association Division II field hockey tournament games to advance to the state championship. Foxcroft fell to top ranked Fredericksburg Academy, 3-0, in the title game Nov. 10 at the National Training Center in Virginia Beach.
The field hockey squad defeated Williamsburg Christian, 3-0, in the first round at home Nov. 6. Foxcroft followed it up by earning its first-ever state semifinal win, defeating Hampton Roads Academy, 1-0, on Nov. 9.
Foxcroft (12-5-2) placed six players on the All-Delaney Athletic Conference field hockey team. Seniors Olivia Jane Johnson, Carter Ware and Caroline Fout, along with juniors Lilly MacDonald and Alicia Holz were voted to the first team. Junior Rebecca Mann garnered second-team accolades.
Fredericksburg Academy also ended Foxcroft’s stellar tennis season. Foxcroft netted a 7-1 victory over Norfolk Christian in the state quarterfinals before falling to Fredericksburg Academy, 5-4, in the semifinals.
Junior Amalia Simpson and freshman Annie Mickum earned All-DAC tennis honors.
