Middleburg, VA (September 2, 2015) – Foxcroft’s fall season started when field hockey, which has reached the VISAA II state semifinal three years in a row, began its campaign on September 1st to match the lacrosse team’s success with a trip to the finals, or maybe even a state title. The opening match was against George Mason High, a new opponent for the Middleburg, VA girls boarding school.
Volleyball also opened at Seton School in Manassas. Last year’s team did so well the Delaney Athletic Conference decided to bump the runner-up team in Division II up to Division I — but Coach Fred McMane is still optimistic. In addition to several First Team All-Conference players, junior Reilly Canard — who started for Loudoun Valley High last year — has joined a strong squad that features four returning starters and two promising freshmen.
Field hockey, tennis and cross country varsity teams also return key veterans — including seven All-State athletes. Last year, field hockey, tennis and volleyball each reached the Delaney Athletic Conference tournament final while the cross-country squad finished third in the DAC Championship.
