Foxcroft Varsity Tennis player Vassiliki Margas ’23 has been selected to the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA) Division I All-State Tennis Second Team in a superb finish to a memorable season. Posting a perfect 9-0 singles season as part of her phenomenal 16-2 record in both singles and doubles this year, Vassiliki also received Greater Piedmont Athletic Conference (GPAC) Player of the Year honors.
Athletic Director Michelle Woodruff offered these words of praise: “Vassiliki was new to Foxcroft this fall but quickly made an impact on the tennis team. Undefeated in singles in the regular season, she was named GPAC Player of the Year and the team’s Most Valuable Player. Not only is her tennis game impressive, but she has a wonderful sense of teamwork, sportsmanship, and dedication to her sport.”
Voting for the All-State teams is conducted by a special committee of coaches for each sport. Coaches nominate players from their teams and, while an athlete does not have to play in the state tournament to be eligible, it is difficult for a player to earn All-State honors if she has not been seen by the committee members.
