Middleburg, VA (Apr. 20, 2016) – Ever since she stepped on the lacrosse field as a freshman, Alex Grace has been something special when it comes to putting the ball in the net. Now the speedy senior from Purcellville, VA, has a very special record for doing just that.
Grace scored seven goals against Trinity Christian Thursday, April 14 to set a Foxcroft School record for most goals in a career. Her four-year total of 242 goals broke the previous school record of 237 set last year by then-senior Emma Rogers.
Rogers, a Reston resident, nows star for Radford University, where she is the second leading scorer with 22 goals in 13 games.
Grace, who will play at the University of Virginia next spring, has 24 goals in just five games for Foxcroft this season. In 2013, as a freshman, she scored 56 goals. The next year, Grace set the single-season goals record with 92 scores. She added 70 goals last season, when she was also named the VISAA Division II Player of the Year for the second consecutive year.
Grace, who has also earned conference and/or state honors in Cross-country, Basketball and field hockey, is the daughter of James and and Jennifer Grace of Purcellville.
