Glens Falls graduate Phoebe Fox never stops moving or caring.

Fox, who will attend Bryant University, spent her high school career as a three-sport athlete — girls’ soccer, Alpine skiing and girls’ lacrosse.

When not on the pitch, slopes or field, she dedicated her time to helping others as a volunteer with the Salvation Army as a bell ringer during the holidays and participating in the local Operation Santa Claus fund drive to purchase toys for local children.”

The winter weather didn’t bother Fox, smiling while ringing for the Salvation Army.

“It was something that I looked forward to because you are helping people,” said Fox, one of 10 high school honorees for the second-annual Capital District Sports Women of the Year awards. “You are with your friends; you get to meet new people and know that you are helping out.”

Within the Glens Falls City Schools, Fox was part of the yearbook committee and selected to the National Honor Society during her junior year.

With soccer in the Foothills Council shifted to the “Fall II” season in March and April that was created to house competitions for school sports teams unable to compete last fall because of concerns related to the novel coronavirus pandemic, Fox’s fall became open for an additional sport — tennis.

“I had never picked up a tennis racket before, but my best friend played and convinced me to do it,” Fox said. “Now I play all the time.”

Tennis provided a new set of challenges for Fox.

“It was different because it’s not so much of a team sport, but it was pretty easy to pick up,” Fox said. “My serve was good early on, but I was really bad at backhands. It was totally going over the fence.”

This spring, Fox returned to the soccer field for her fourth varsity year.

“Phoebe showed dedication and commitment as she was the first player to arrive at practice and the last to leave,” Glens Falls girls’ soccer coach Thomas Barrows said. “As the captain of the team, she led by example through her positive attitude and strong work ethic.”

The Glens Falls girls’ lacrosse captain and leading scorer the past four years shined.

“Phoebe’s lacrosse knowledge and heads-up game play are unmatched,” Glens Falls girls’ lacrosse coach Elyse Hagy said of Fox, who will play lacrosse at Division I Bryant.

Glens Falls athletic director Arthur Corlew said Fox was an all-around star during her years at Glens Falls High School.

“Her academic record attests to her hard work, commitment and dedication to be the best student she can be,” Corlew said. “In my 29 years in education, she ranks in the top 5% of student-athletes.

“Phoebe is well-respected by her peers. Her hard work serves as a positive role model to all that come in contact with her,” Corlew said. “Phoebe, as a leader, sets high standards for herself, and all of her coaches have said that Phoebe is a coach and a leader on and off the field.”
