Athletics Update: Volleyball Shines in the Finale
In front of a full crowd in the Downing gym, the Belmont Day volleyball team put on quite a performance on their final day of competition. All three squads got into the action, but it was the Blue team who stole the show with three consecutive wins, including back-to-back victories against Gold. With solid contributions up and down their lines, Blue received consistent play from Alice Guo, Natalie Jean, and McKenna Daley. On the other side of the net, Aria Goodpaster and Lucy Targum put the finishing touches on remarkable seasons for Gold and received some timely support from Elise Goodman on the back line. With fans on the sidelines and positive energy in the gym, the athletes rose to the occasion and demonstrated strong play all afternoon. Congratulations to the volleyball team on a successful season!
