Track & Field Sends Six Athletes to “States”

This spring, a program record six athletes qualified the Massachusetts Middle School Track & Field Championships. Scheduled for Saturday, June 1, the championship meet will pit Belmont Day’s best against the most elite runners in the state. Amazingly, this year’s group of Blue & Gold athletes includes three veterans and no eighth graders. Seventh grade classmates Kiki Friedbauer, Piper Morris, and Miles Sandoski are all returning for their second time, while fellow classmates Elena Ferarri and Cole Sparks earned spots for the first time this year. Joining the handful of her seventh grade teammates is newcomer Bree LeGrand, who came on strong this year in the 400m. Congratulations to all six athletes on a successful season and good luck this weekend on the track!

Athletics Highlights

  • The athletics program will celebrate another successful year at the Athletics Banquet, which is scheduled for Monday, June 3. This is a mandatory event for all middle school athletes and families are strongly encouraged to attend.

  • The final chapter of this year’s Coaches vs Grade 8 showdowns will be written on Tuesday, June 4 as the two groups square off on Far Field for a game of ultimate. The entire community is invited to come out to see the action.
