Athletics Update: Strong Finish for Blue & Gold Athletics
Today marks the final day of interscholastic competition for the fall season. With the exception of varsity football, which squares off against Rashi this afternoon at home, teams have already wrapped up competitive play and are easing into a little downtime before the winter season begins. All may seem quiet now, but up and down the schedule Belmont Day’s teams finished their seasons with a bang. The fun began last Friday night when the girls’ varsity soccer team blanked Meadowbrook (2-0) under the lights at Harvard. The next day, cross country entered 17 athletes into a field of over 1,000 runners at the State Championships and walked away with a pair of top-ten finishes. Next, the JV football team (W 31-18) and JV soccer team (W 3-0) opened the week with dominating performances over Park. Then yesterday, the field hockey team and the boys’ varsity soccer team each walked away with 2-0 wins over LCA. This brings us to today where the varsity football team has an opportunity to put the finishing touches on a truly memorable fall season in front of a huge crowd on Claflin Field. Congratulations to all of our middle school athletes on a terrific fall season. BELIEVE.
