High Expectations for Track & Field

Belmont Day’s track & field team is loaded with talent this spring. Despite only having 13 athletes, the team is geared up for a record-breaking season and is expected to give much larger programs a run for their money. Leading the way for the Blue & Gold is a contingency of seventh graders who are all returning for their second year. On the boys’ side, Miles Sandoski and Cole Sparks will look to build upon successful cross country seasons from this fall. For the girls, Piper Morris and Kiki Friedbauer will look to lower already impressive times from a year ago. The Blue & Gold is slated to kick off their interscholastic schedule on the road on Thursday, April 4.
