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!

  • With two more wins this week, the fencing team finished their season with a 5-1 record. Tadhg O’Sullivan came up big with his first interscholastic win against BB&N while Giddy Borisy and Bodhi Demers helped pace the epee squad.
  • Liam Brodeur and Braiden Dargon provided a physical presence down low for boys’ varsity during Friday Night Hoops, but sixth grade standout Andrew Green stole the show with a gutsy performance in front of a huge crowd.
  • Veterans Emma Kass, Ruby Kokonis, and Eliza Kuechle left it all the court during girls’ varsity’s crushing last-second loss to Meadowbrook on Friday night. The trio led the team to one of the best records in program history.
  • Wrestling took down Fay 11-7 and finished the season with a 4-1 record. Wisdom Badgett and Calder Wilmot continued to show growth on the mat, while Peter Kurtz and Alex Foley each recorded big wins in their matches.
