Athletics Update: Five More Weeks of Winter

Belmont Day’s resident groundhog (sightings have been made on Claflin Field) apparently saw his shadow because there are another five weeks of the winter athletics season on tap for our middle school students. With new offerings added to the mix, including badminton, PE games, and pillow polo, athletes will have the opportunity for some playful experiences this session rather than a strict focus on fitness.

This morning, during our Winter Athletics sharing assembly (click here to see recording), eighth grade leaders Harry Reitshamer, Rosie Schrag, Dana Chang, Elijah Allen, Zephy Borisy, and Ripley Bright did a great job highlighting the first session of winter athletics. Collectively, this group of athletes worked extremely hard during the past five weeks and were selected by their coaches to represent their peers. Congratulations to all of our athletes on a job well done.
