Athletics Update: Schneider, Treisman, and Ruiz Shine in Win
The girls’ lacrosse team toppled Shady Hill 12-8 in their season opener yesterday. It was a strong performance from the opening draw to the final whistle, as Belmont Day controlled play for the entire game. First year goalie Kamila Ruiz came up huge in net for the home team with 7 saves on the afternoon. Also to note was the play of seventh grade classmates Avery Schneider and Quincy Treisman. Schneider was a force at midfield, effectively shutting down the Shady Hill attack with strong slides and aggressive play. Treisman led the way offensively with a team-high 4 goals and 2 assists. Eighth grade captains Niamh O’Brien and Emma Kass also got into the mix, combining for 6 goals and 8 assists. The team will look to run it back next week when they host LCA.
