Monick Foote was the national high school basketball player of the year while at Sanford School and became an all-conference college player who went on to play professionally. Foote was voted
first-team Delaware All-State in 1992, ’93 and ’94; in both ’93 and ’94, she was Gatorade State Player of the Year. Foote led Sanford to the state championship in 1994 when she was named the Delaware
Player of the Year and the Gatorade National High School Player of the Year. She was also named a national Parade Magazine first-team All-American. Foote scored 1,609 points at Sanford, among the
highest total points by a girl in Delaware history. Sanford’s record over her four seasons was 77-12. As a freshman at the University of Virginia in 1995, Foote tied the NCAA Tournament record with
seven 3-pointers in a second-round game vs. Florida. She was one of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s top sophomores in 1996. Foote helped carry the Cavaliers to the NCAA Tournament regional finals in
her first two years. Her junior year was wiped out by injury, so she red-shirted and then Foote, as team captain her senior season, rebounded to make the ACC all-conference third team in 1998-99.
Over her collegiate career, Foote scored 1,315 points, averaged 35.3 percent in three-point shooting, made the all-ACC freshman team and was named to the all-ACC academic team her senior season. She
wore number 13 throughout her career in Charlottesville. Foote played professionally for several years in Israel. In 2000, she was named Delaware’s 1990s Player of the Decade in a poll of coaches,
writers and referees. The same poll named her first-team all-defensive team for the 1990s. The website Delaware Girls Basketball included Foote in its first “Great Players of the Past” in 2008.
