Foxhoven has a 3.4 GPA and was a CoSIDA Academic First Team All-American in 2009. She also landed on the Academic All-American Third Team in 2010, is a two-time Academic First Team All-District VIII selection and a two-time member of the WCC All-Academic First Team.

Character

Foxhoven exemplifies the qualities that a true team leader should possess. As a team captain, she takes it upon herself to help solve problems within the team, to make sure everything goes smoothly and that everyone is happy. She takes extra strides to make sure nobody on the team is excluded, including the freshmen, and she is described as a “happy-go-lucky person who hates conflicts.” She loves playing the game of soccer and she has embraced and is completely dedicated to the demanding and strict work ethic that goes along with being a world class athlete. She’s overcome recurring calf injuries early in her collegiate career and she has completely revamped her fitness during the past two years.

Community

Foxhoven founded and runs Equipment across Continents, which is an online resource working to provide equal opportunity for people from all walks of life to engage in sports. Founded alongside Coaches across Continents, Equipment across Continents serves as a low cost provider for new and used sports equipment. The ultimate goal of Equipment across Continents is to provide sports equipment to facilitate Coaches across Continents to educate local communities on the design and implementation of social development programs using sports as a teaching tool. All of the proceeds go towards funding shipments of used sports equipment to Coaches across Continents so that they may be used as educational tools for children in underdeveloped countries.

Competition

She is a three-time First Team All-WCC selection, has landed on several All-American Teams and All-Region Teams, was the 2008 WCC Freshman of the Year and was on the 2010 MAC Hermann Preseason Watch List. Foxhoven currently ranks fourth all-time at UP with 49 career goals and is sixth with 121 career points. She had a banner year as a junior in 2009, scoring 25 goals and racking up 62 points, which rank fifth and fourth, respectively, on UP’s all-time single season charts. She has scored four goals in a game twice.
