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.

  • Annika Vittal and Quincy Treisman found the back of the net during girls’ varsity soccer’s emotional 2-0 win last Friday night against Meadowbrook.
  • Petros Samuel provided the lone goal in boys’ varsity soccer’s 1-1 tie under the lights at Harvard last week. BDS had chances for the go-ahead, but couldn’t break through.
  • Elise Goodman, Natalie Jean, and Emme Taylor finished their BDS soccer careers on a high note with strong defense in the team’s 3-0 win over Park.
  • The JV football team evened their record at 3-3 this week behind the strong running of Jun Murakami and Aidan Tan, as well as the sound decision-making of Calum Dunbar.
  • Nina Cohen-Perlmutter scored early and BDS never looked back during field hockey’s 2-0 win over LCA. Ilana Brauner tallied the team’s second goal.
  • Sam Leviton (2nd) and Kaden Flummerfelt (5th) paced Belmont Day at the State Championships last weekend. Every repeat runner improved their times from a year ago.
