Athletics Update: Axiotis’ Dramatic Reversal Highlights Wrestling’s Big Win

Eighth grader Nikos Axiotis, a veteran on the wrestling team, was on his back, down by one point, with under 10 seconds left in his match. With his hopes of a win ticking away, Nikos executed a perfect two-point reversal as time expired and emerged with a huge win over one of Milton’s best wrestlers. The win highlighted Belmont Day’s big day as they traveled to Milton and took 6 of 8 matches from the Mustangs. Kaden Flummerfelt, Quinn Clark, Quinn McCaffrey, Ellis Anderson, and Peter Kurtz all recorded wins in the first interscholastic wrestling competitions of their careers. With such a resounding victory for the inexperienced Belmont Day squad, the team has reset their expectations for the new year and will head into break riding high.

  • Seventh grade classmates Sebastian Colberg, Daniel Peregudov, and Angel Geng have all shown promise on the fencing strip this winter.
  • Ana McEleney, Juliana Li, and Nicky Mattox were elected to serve as captains of the volleyball team. It is each athlete’s second captaincy of the year.
